  • 1 (16 ounce) package whole-wheat gnocchi

  • 1 small eggplant, sliced lengthwise into 1/2-inch planks

  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced lengthwise into 1/2-inch planks

  • 1 medium yellow squash, sliced lengthwise into 1/2-inch planks

  • 1 ear corn, husked

  • ½ medium red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rings

  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 2 cloves garlic, grated

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Boil gnocchi according to package directions. Drain.

  3. Meanwhile, brush eggplant, zucchini, squash, corn and onion with 2 tablespoons oil. Grill the vegetables, turning occasionally, until charred and tender, 6 to 10 minutes total.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
