White coco sauce served with Gnocchi is the real definition of yummy.
One of my favorite things about gnocchi is the soft pillowy texture. Add this yummy Gnocchi Coco Sauce, and you are immediately shipped to food heaven! The key to a great-tasting Gnocchi Coco Sauce is to keep it simple, fresh, and natural. Our recipe uses coconut milk, caraway seed or cumin seeds, chili powder, fresh ginger, dried oregano, brown sugar, coconut butter
and tomato pulp.
Coat this over freshly prepared Gnocchi, and you will have this meal at least once a week. One good thing about this recipe is that it is very easy to add in your favorite ingredients, especially the spices, depending on what you like. If you want more spice, add more chili; if not, tone it down a little. You can also use olive oil in place of coconut butter, and it will still taste good.
You can also serve small balls of sentient diet cheese to the sauce and serve with Gnocchi or pasta for a more luxurious texture. Try it as is, then feel free to play around with the ingredients.
