Extra Crispy Cauliflower Gnocchi

Anyone else on the Trader Joes Cauliflower Gnocchi bandwagon? I love mine crispy, yet the crispy part always tends to stick to the bottom of the skillet when I make it, and leave me with a mushy, sticky mess of cauliflower gnocchi. I’ve tried countless recipes, and my favorite, most successful results were using the…

Sweet Potato Arepas

Before I moved to Miami, I didn’t even know what an arepa was. Boy was this gringa missing out! Arepas are made of corn flour and can be topped or filled with your favorite ingredients. Plus, this dish is great for vegetarians like myself because you can ask for it without meat, and often you…

It’s delicious, nutritious, vegan (the socca part, not the…
