Simple Gnocchi – Vegan & Glutenfree

Vegan & Gluten Free Gnocchi – toasted 

I am a big fan of Italian food, I think I perhaps was one in my previous life. There is a lot of similarities between Indian and Italian cuisines – What I like is the concept of eating fresh food and like the way recipes are handed down from generation to generation and the grandma’s secrets that are kept in the family. This is here a gluten-free vegan version, my kids love batata in every form and shape, so it goes without saying that they jus can’t get enough of it! This one is a pure hit with in its clean flavor and humble form. Bon Apetito!

TIPS:
