Easy, savory dish with abundance of good veggies
This was delicious and it helped me finally get my husband to eat veggies (he didn't even miss the meat)! I'm not an accomplished cook by any means, so I always pay close attention to the reviews to learn from others. Here's my two cents saut+¬ed recipe:
I saut+¬ed the gnocchi in the pan longer than the recipe said to get it nice and toasty, probably close to 10 minutes. I think this helped maintain its texture once all the liquid was added.
Currants - couldn't find them, dried or fresh. Ended up using dried Craisen brand cherries. It worked!
I used all of the vegetable stock - it cooked down into a nice sauce, and I didn't have a problem with anything being too mushy.
As much as I love balsamic vinegar, I did NOT like the balsamic reduction - it was far too sweet and overpowered the rest of the dish in my opinion. We ate the leftovers the next day without the reduction and it was 10x better.
I'll definitely make this again!
Pros: Unique combo of flavors - a tasty departure from the norm
Cons: I didn't like the balsamic - too sweet. It's much better without it
