Produce Made Simple challenged me to developed a recipe featuring rutabaga. What's the challenge? Take this odd looking and often overlooked root and make it something that you might actually want to eat. Challenge accepted! Rutabaga Gnocchi here I come. I made this gnocchi from scratch then lightly tossed it with a Lemon and Thyme sauce. So simple yet deeelicious. They seemed to think so too.
I think the only way I had been served rutabaga before now, was mashed, which is kind of like mashed potatoes, except super disappointing. It was definitely time for an upgrade.
To make this gnocchi recipe, I cooked the rutabaga and mashed it, then mixed it with flour to make a simple dough. Roll it out, slice it up, pop it in boiling water, and tah dah! Rutabaga Gnocchi.
When finished boiling, toss the gnocchi with my simple Lemon and Thyme sauce (or whatever sauce you think would be fab) and feature rutabaga as the fabulous root it really is.

Girl, this looks amazing! I have seen large rutabagas in my grocery store and I usually walk right past them because I have no idea what to do with one. I have been overwhelmed by these ominous vegetables but now I have courage and an innovative recipe to justify buying one and whipping up something tasty.

Haha! Great! So glad you feel inspired. I know, rutabagas are sp overlooked. Not anymore!
Gnocchi is so yum! It's fun to play around with different starches to change the texutre and flavour. 🙂
