I found this recipe on eatingwell.com when I was looking for healthy vegetarian options for soon-to-arrive guests. It met the requirements: Protein, check. Interesting flavor profile, check. Served cold, check (forecasts of 90-degree days).
I remember canned green beans. And worse, canned mixed vegetables. Can I just say, ew? The memory is not unlike that of recurring nightmares I had as a child. It’s no wonder that so many of us who encountered that canned mush as kids didn’t like most vegetables. Thank goodness for corn and potatoes!
I expected to love this dish from eatingwell.com and wanted leftovers, so I doubled it for three of us. I didn’t double the gnocchi because of the carbs, and I added protein in the form of four Spinach & Asiago Chicken Sausages from Sam’s Club.
The recipe says to serve this wonderful concoction on English muffins, which, according to my scribble in the cookbook, is “great.” I experimented this time with serving the cheese-glazed vegetables on better-for-you whole grains.
