Directions:

  1. Prepare gnocchi per package instructions.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp Canola oil over medium heat. Add boiled gnocchi and sauté until slightly crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Remove gnocchi from pan, set aside.
  3. In the same pan, add remaining oil, add onion and garlic, cook until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add beans and one handful of kale at a time, cooking until wilted. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
  4. In a jar with a lid, combine all the dressing ingredients, replace lid and shake until combined and oil starts to emulsify. Set aside.
  5. In a large bowl add gnocchi, beans and kale, drizzle with dressing and toss gently to coat. Top with Parmesan cheese.

*Canola oil is a great fat to help you absorb all the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) in your fruits and veggies. It has a light, neutral taste that won’t compete with other flavours. And it’s high in healthy omega 3 fats and low in bad saturated fats.
