Yummy Substituted dried cranberries for the currants as I couldn't find them. It worked very well. I also used salt and pepper to season the gnocchi as I was browning them and salted the veggies when I was sauteeing them. I think those who think the dish is too sweet might find this helpful with added salt it was perfectly balanced. Pros: Great flavors Cons: Add more salt
I thought the recipe was delicious! I did make some adjustments thought. I roasted the delicate squash and chickpeas. I used dried cranberries added ginger and used much less broth then recommended. I also added crumbled feta on top at the end.
YUM! This is the first time I've cooked acorn squash myself. Never liked it when someone else cooked it. I cut it into chunks and peeled then sliced the chunks to make the peeling easier. I cooked it al dente not to mush which really helped. Used very mature spinach and only cooked it to just wilting. Used craisins instead of currants and chicken bullion instead of veg broth since that's what was handy. Just a splash of balsamic from the bottle and added a small sprinkle of shredded parm on top. I will make this again full vegan version when our daughter visits in a couple of weeks. Absolutely LOVED everything about this recipe. I'm a squash lover NOW! Pros: Excellent flavor profile quick cooking good nutrition
ok but not better than ok I love each ingredient separately but this recipe fails to create a cohesive flavor. It's ok tastes good enough. But I don't think I will ever make it again. Pros: Lots of veggies Cons: Incompatible flavors
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 sauteed recipe: I sauteed 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
I wouldn't make this It was terrible at best. Everything in it we love but all together was just awful. Never again will I waste good ingredients on this dish. Such a disappointment. I'm still wondering how it got such great reviews.
Gourmet At Home I made this last night adding 1/2 pound pork apple sausage using only 1 package of gluten-free gnocchi and topping with crumbled Gorgonzola cheese. The flavors were delicious and it was relatively easy. I also only used 1 cup of vegetable broth. Make sure to cut the squash into thin strips otherwise it will take longer to cook. You could also roast it first then simply bring it to temperature. Pros: Good Flavor Profile
