What You Need To Make Paleo Gnocchi Bolognese:
- Cauliflower gnocchi-You wouldn’t even know that the gnocchi in this recipe is made from cauliflower. You can find this healthy alternative at Trader Joe’s.
- Red sauce-You can for sure make homemade, but if you are looking to save on time I love this brand. It is full of flavor and clean.
- Garlic and sea salt-This seasons the meat.
- Spinach-You can’t even taste it, so why not add more greens.
- Fresh basil to garnish-Fresh herbs add the most perfect touch.
- Grass fed beef-The quality of my meats are super important to me. I always use Butcher Box. If you click here, you can get $30 off your first order.
How To Make Paleo Gnocchi Bolognese:
- Aside from the taste, the second best thing about this recipe is how easy it is! This recipe is quick.
- First, add your beef, sea salt, and garlic to the pan. Cook it on medium low. If you cook it at a higher temperature the beef will come out tough. It is meant to be cooked slowly.
- Move the beef around with a wooden spatula.
- Once 5 minutes is up, add the remaining ingredients: spinach, red sauce and gnocchi. Be sure to keep the stovetop on low-medium heat.
- Now, cook for 10-15 minutes. You want to cook it to the point where the cauliflower gnocchi can be easily cut in half with a spoon.
- Serve with fresh herbs like basil.
Can I Reheat?
- Yes, absolutely! I suggest reheating on the stovetop on low heat. I do not suggest reheating meat in the microwave.
How Long Does It Last In The Fridge?
- Up to 5 days in an airtight container.
