Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Kale and Meat

 

(Grainfree) Sweet Potato Gnocchi

You will need:

2 medium sized sweet potatoes (not yams)

1/2 cup Tapioca Starch (flour)

1 egg yolk

Salt and Pepper

Parchment paper

 

How it’s done:

Cook the sweet potatoes and mash thoroughly (no lumps)

When cool, add the egg yolk, Tapioca starch, salt and pepper, and mix well.

Transfer to a Ziploc bag and pop in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

When ready to prepare, snip off a corner of the Ziploc bag (no more than 1/2”)

Squeeze on to parchment paper, press lightly with a fork and back 25-30min at 325˚F

 

I tossed mine in a butter garlic sauce and spiced it up with Cayenne pepper, a dash of fresh rosemary, and a pinch of paprika. DELICIOUS!!!

 

Kale

Sautee fresh kale in 1tbs oil (of your choice)

Season with sea salt, pepper, red pepper flakes

Squeeze juice of 1/2 lemon

Let cook for about 5 minutes

 

Meat

3oz (organic grass-fed beef) liver = 22g of (nutritious, good-for-you) protein

 

Pan seared (organic grass-fed beef) liver, lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, but you can use any protein of your choice.

When over cooked, the liver is rubbery. So only sear for about 3-4 minutes on each side.

 

Other than the prep time for Gnocchi, the entire meal prep time is less than 20min.

 

Eat well and enjoy!
