Gluten-Free Gnocchi in a Spicy Lentil Tomato Sauce
Looking for a simple and healthy dinner option? This pasta recipe is nutritious, simple and delicious! It’s low-fat, filling and packed with lots of vitamins and minerals. Lentils are a great source of protein and iron (with almost no fat) and they’re full of fibre!
1 tsp of EVOO
1 medium-sized cooking onion (chopped)
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 can of Whole Plum Tomatoes (no salt added)
1 cup of red lentils (rinsed and drained)
2 Tbsp of dried oregano
1-2 tsp of cayenne pepper (dried)
2 tbsp raw coconut sugar, S&P to taste
1 package of gluten-free
low sodium gnocchi (egg and dairy free) – I used San Remo.
Heat a large sauce pan and add olive oil, onion and garlic.
Sauté until onions are translucent.
Next, add the tomatoes, lentils and all the spices.
Bring to a boil and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of water to boil.
Add fresh gnocchi to the boiling water for about 2 minutes or until they float to the top of the pot!
Toss the gnocchi in the sauce.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!!
