Gnocchi Salad (Raw Vegan)

    A nice simple salad for those wanting a light but tasty meal with some carbohydrates. Great for smashing out your daily vegetable requirements. The textures and flavors keep it interesting, making this one a great recipe to modify and add other vegetables too. This Recipe makes 2 servings or 3 small servings.

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups of Gnocchi
    • 2 large Fresh Tomatoes Diced into Small cubes
    • 8 artichoke peices
    • 4 generous tablespoons of Garlic Dip (store bought or homemade)
    • 2 Tablespoons of Garlic Aioli (I recommend my Raw vegan Recipe for it)
    • 2 Tablespoons of Ajvar (pronaunced uy-vaar) (I reccomend Mammas home made brand)
    • Fresh Coriander
    • 2 Handfuls of Alfaalfa Sprouts (I suggest the radish ones if you have a choice)
    • Optional: Nutritional Yeast to garnish
    • Optional: Replace the Artichokes with Fresh olives if you don't like artichokes
    • Optional: Add other fresh vegetables to the salad
    • Optional: Garnishing with some chopped fresh chilli for a nice warm winter salad

    Directions

    1. Cook your Gnocchi until tender. (2-3 minutes after they rise, or however you like them cooked)
    2. While Gnocchi is cooking Dice up those juicy tomatoes
    3. Cut the artichokes into halves or quarters and throw them into a bowl with the diced tomatoes, then Toss in a handful of alfaalfa sprouts for texture. (Don't forget to break apart the alfaalfa sprouts so you get an even amount with each bite of the salad)
    4. Drizzle with garlic Aioli, then mix the salad up. Most of it should absorb in the alfaalfa. Now slather it all with the ajvar, before finally topping with the garlic dip. Mix this all together. The garlic aioli (if it was left at room temperature enough to thaw) should half absorb in the alfa alfa, and half drip to the bottom of the plate. The garlic dip and ajvar should combine to form a nice sauce that binds to the gnocchi and vegetables.
    5. Garnish with coriander and/or fresh chilli and serve.

    Tip

    Don't forget to eat enough protein! Although salads like this are nice light meals to have through-out the week, they should always be combined with a good source of daily protein. Obtaining protein from vegetables alone: is stupid unless your supplementing with a good quality pea protein, or eating lots of high protein soy products. I personally recommend a pea protein with ed-least 1.3 grams of methionine per every 100grams of the supplement.
