  • 1 tsp. of Matcha for Recipes

INSTRUCTIONS 

  1. Microwave cauliflower in the freezer bag according to directions on the package.

  2. Open the bag and transfer the cauliflower rice to a dish cloth. Squeeze out excess liquid. *

  3. Combine cauliflower, kale, vegetable milk and olive oil in a food processor. Pulse to puree.

  4. Add Matcha, garlic powder, salt and flour. Pulse until a homogeneous paste is obtained.*

  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

  6. Meanwhile, transfer the dough to a floured work surface.

  7. Divide the dough into 4 portions and roll each into long rolls. Cut the rolls into gnocchi of about 2 cm.

  8. Once the water has boiled, place the gnocchi. Stir to prevent them from sticking. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the gnocchi float to the surface.

  9. Using a skimmer or small colander, collect the gnocchi and transfer to a large dish.

  10. Add all the ingredients "for the sauce" to the large dish and mix to coat the gnocchi.

  11. Serve and garnish with nutritional yeast, hemp seeds and freshly ground pepper.

Note: 

  • It is possible to make this recipe with a whole cauliflower. In this case, weigh 340g of cauliflower (about ¼ medium size cauliflower) and grate by hand or pulse in a food processor to make cauliflower rice. Transfer to a microwave-safe dish, add a trickle of water and cover with plastic wrap or microwave lid. Cook on high power for 6 minutes. Continue the recipe according to the directions above. 

  • The dough may be sticky: it's normal. That's why you should flour the work surface to prevent it from sticking to the dough.
