A Foodie’s Take on Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Gnocchi!

  • 2 min read

Hey there, foodie friends! It’s Mike again, and I’m back with another exciting review. This time, I’m diving into the world of Trader Joe’s frozen foods, specifically their Sweet Potato Gnocchi. Let’s see if this popular item lives up to the hype!

As we all know, quick and healthy meals are a must-have on our shopping lists. Trader Joe’s is a treasure trove of such options, especially in their frozen section, which is a lifesaver for busy families. Recently, I decided to try something a bit different – the Sweet Potato Gnocchi that comes with its own butter and sage sauce. The serving size is just right for a family with small children or as a side dish for a full meal.

So, what does Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Gnocchi taste like? Well, if you’re new to gnocchi, you’re in for a treat. Picture a soft, pillowy nugget of delicious potato, drenched in sauce, replacing your usual pasta. The texture is light and chewy, and it pairs well with any sauce, given its fairly neutral flavor. Traditional gnocchi is made of white potatoes, flour, egg, and cheese. But Trader Joe’s has put a unique twist on theirs by using sweet potatoes.

Now, don’t let the name fool you. The sweet potato gnocchi isn’t overly sweet. It has a subtle sweetness that doesn’t overpower the dish. The taste remains light, and the texture is still airy and chewy. The sauce, created by the water you add and the contents of the bag, is simple and buttery – a hit with the kids!

Wondering about the nutritional info? The Trader Joe’s frozen gnocchi offers a reasonable 3 cups per bag, with each cup being 250 calories. This makes it a relatively low-calorie side dish, perfect to pair with a heartier protein entrée.

In conclusion, this was a super easy meal to prepare. Just pull it out of the freezer and cook it in a pan. I’m all about one-pan easy dinner meals, and this gnocchi dish is definitely making it to my weekday rotation!

So, if you’re looking for a quick, easy, and delicious meal option, give Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Gnocchi a try. I’m sure it’ll become a favorite in your household too!

Stay tuned for more foodie adventures, and remember, good food is just around the corner!

Cheers, Mike
