If you are frequent reader of mine, you already know that I started participating in the Secret Recipe Club – SRC as of last month. Every month, each participant is assigned to a different participant’s blog, from which we can pick one of their many recipes to prepare. Well, this month I have been assigned to Teaspoon of Spice . Its authors, Serena Ball and Deanna Segrave-Daly, are two registered dietitians. From their blog’s many delicious, healthy recipes, I picked one that really popped, both to my eyes and stomach. Once adapted, it became our Gnocchi with Greens, Bacon, Grilled Corn, and Tomatoes — a quick yet nutritious family meal!
I specifically picked gnocchi dish not only because I am a ‘pasta’/dumpling lover, but because it is a nutritious and complete meal. I think this fits the spirit of their blog!
I have to confess that although their gnocchi is simple yet very flavorful– and I do enjoy it that way that it is, I have modified the gnocchi recipe a bit to accommodate a typical dish from Brazil — Collard Greens a la Mineira — as well as frequent ingredients from my Brazilian table– e.g. corn and tomatoes. Yes, you can say that I have Brazilianized Deanna’s amazing gnocchi! I just hope that you don’t mind, Deanna!!! In my take on Deanna’s recipe, you will be eating two dishes in one: Gnocchi and Collard Greens a la Mineira.
I do recommend you to try both gnocchi, hers and mine! 😉 It’s a win-win game… Thanks for stopping by again! See you soon in the kitchen.
