Instructions

Skillet

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons avocado oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the frozen cauliflower gnocchi from the bag and add to the skillet, spreading in an even layer.

  2. Let the gnocchi cook UNDISTURBED, for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. Do not attempt to flip if the gnocchi is still sticking as that means they are not ready yet.

    Once the gnocchi can easily be moved without sticking, use a spatula to flip and continue to cook an additional 8 minutes while stirring and shaking the pan regularly to ensure even browning.

Oven

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with avocado oil or olive oil.
