In this quick vegetarian dinner recipe, you can skip boiling the gnocchi--they'll cook through while roasting on the sheet pan with the rest of the ingredients. If you can't find Meyer lemons, use 1 small regular lemon in Step 2 and use 4 teaspoons lemon juice and 2 teaspoons orange juice in Step 4. Source: EatingWell Magazine, November/December 2016

  • Slice and seed 1 lemon. Toss in a large bowl with Brussels sprouts, gnocchi, shallots, 2 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet.

  • Roast, stirring once or twice, until the gnocchi are plump and the Brussels sprouts are tender, 18 to 20 minutes.

  • Squeeze juice from the remaining lemon. Return the gnocchi mixture to the bowl and toss with sun-dried tomatoes, the lemon juice and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt.

Tips

Tips: Sunny yellow Meyer lemons have a distinctive sweet-tart floral taste. Find them in late winter and early spring in well-stocked markets. You can substitute for the juice with 2 parts lemon juice and 1 part orange juice.

Organic lemons are less likely to have traces of fungicides commonly used on citrus. So choose organic when cooking with lemon peel and zest.

Wow - just wow. I followed the recipe exactly - absolutely delicious and so satisfying. My only complaint is that I m not sure how low calorie it is going to turn out to be because I keep sampling the leftover. Read More

Made this to use up some Brussel Sprouts left over from Xmas... followed recipe and served with Sauage Sage Stuffing. I found the lemon too much and shall try making this again with half the quantity of lemon juice that is added in at the end. Read More

Yum! I made this with a red onion instead of shallots since shallots tend to be expensive around here and added some garbanzo beans to up the protein. It was delicious. I'm able to find "whole wheat" gnocchi at my local store (just regular gnocchi with added bran) and used that. Even the 6-year-old loved it (though he picked out the onions). Definitely a keeper of a recipe. Read More
