If you’ve never had gnocchi, you are in for a treat! Gnocchi is a potato dumpling where potatoes are mashed and then mixed with flour and egg. The good thing about Gnocchi is it can be paired with almost anything as it’s so versatile. So, this easy gnocchi and lemon vegetables is a great weeknight vegetarian meal.
80g tender stem broccoli
80g sugar snap peas
160g fine green beans
2 spring onions
35g Italian hard cheese
350g wholemeal gnocchi (you can buy them ready-made or make them yourself!)
20g butter/low-fat spread
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
1 Tsp of olive oil
Wholemeal gnocchi has a higher fibre content than regular gnocchi. Tender stem broccoli, sugar snap peas and fine green beans also help achieve your daily fibre intake of 30g/day. More and more studies show that a diet high in fibre is also associated with a decreased breast cancer risk.
Women who eat a high amount of fruits and vegetables may have a lower risk of breast cancer than those who eat fewer fruits and vegetables—according to a 2018 study, cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, and yellow and orange vegetables, had a particularly significant association with lower breast cancer risk.
