Cauliflower Gnocchi Waffles

1 comment

Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi is a weekly staple in my household. I took those delicious cauliflower bites and threw them into my waffle iron to create these delicious cauliflower gnocchi savory waffles. They taste amazing as a breakfast side or top them off with some pizza sauce to create the ultimate pizza waffle!

How to prepare the cauliflower gnocchi

You will want the cauliflower gnocchi to be soft, similar to a dough consistency. This way, they can cook evenly in the waffle iron. The best way to do this is to heat them on the stove top with about 2 tsp of avocado oil. Allow them to sauté for about 5 minutes, but watch them closely so they don’t start to cook.

After the five minutes are up, add them to your greased waffle iron and cook over medium heat. THAT’S IT.

Get fancy with your toppings

The possibilities are endless when it comes to topping your cauliflower gnocchi waffles! They make a great addition for Sunday brunch or even mid week pizza night!

Top the cauliflower gnocchi off with some marinara sauce and parmesan cheese, the kids are sure to love it!
