Vegan Mofo # 12 Gnocchi with Shiitake Mushrooms and Haricot Vert

 There are evenings when I have had a full day of activities that the thought of spending hours in the kitchen can be draining. So what do you do? Grab some frozen and a few fresh items that can be prepared quickly – say 30 minutes.

I love this dish so much that I change it up almost every time I make it. You can do the same.


If you add a salad, it further enhances the meal while provide additional nutrients and balance.
