Try pasta sauces; the gnocchi replacing pasta; a tomato-based sauce with some herbs to suit your taste. The idea is the starch in gnocchi would soak any flavors you'd add to them.

If you want to replace eggs, you'd want another ingredient that will act as a binder AND coagulant. The proteins in tofu should do the trick.

I find gnocci pretty heavy going, in a way similar to the steamed rice they do here, 'longtong'. And also JPnese mochi, although that's eaten cold AFAIR.

So I'd keep the sauce simple, light and zesty, and perhaps add some grated parmesan/peccorino (I prefer the latter, it has a similar but gutsier flavour, plus it's usually the cheaper of the two) to give it a bit of tang. Or use an Arrabiata sauce which is light, veggy, and has some spicy zest to it.

Googling 'gnocci sauce' brings up many hits. I haven't opened any but these sound suited/promising...

Pumpkin corn soup:

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium red onion, chopped
1 medium pumpkin, diced (about 500g)
3 teaspoons of thyme and oregano
1 can reduced-sodium chicken broth (about 500ml)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 can of corn kernels
1 teaspoon lime juice
Few cubes of feta cheese

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and cook until fragrant. Add pumpkin and 1 teaspoon herbs and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes, until pumpkin starts to soften.

Add broth and salt and bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer for 5 minutes and cook until the pumpkin becomes soft. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. Return the soup to the pan and stir in corn. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and stir occasionally, until the corn is tender (the recipe says 5 minutes but I needed 10 minutes to make the corn soft). Remove from the heat and stir in lime juice. Serve garnished with the remaining 2 teaspoons herbs and feta cheese.

Heaven.

Rice crackers/senbei* instead of bread crumbs/panko for fried chicken.

*Also a great way to recycle stale but still within best before date potato chips, crackers, doritos, etc.

That looks exactly like the omelet I eat every morning! Only I substitute Pepper Beef in place of ham or bacon. I use Tomato, Capsicum, Swiss Brown Mushrooms and Pepper Beef (occasionally I'll throw in some onion as well)

I've another pic of the pre-prep'd ingredients, but pix don't seem to want to display too well it seems.... hmmm.

Mmm-yum, that sounds like a good combo. I bet if you totted up the 'nutrition' it would be way healthier than first impressions.

Mine was intended with more of a 'loaded' idea, with what I had at hand, than super-healthy as such. So mine was 3 rashers of bacon (gently pre-fried, with all the fat trimmed off => surprisingly healthier than popular conception), shitake mushrooms, a couple of chopped shallots (slightly caramelised/dry-fried), some cubes of pretty feisty aged gouda cheese (very hard cheese, almost like parmesan), and a sprinkle of thyme. Cherry toms, also pre dry-fried. I think that was it ... :)

What's nice is how you can change 'the theme'. I've done a previous version with seafood. Some prawns, mini-scallops (bay scallops), and cubes of fresh salmon.

There seem many possibilities :) :cool:

Try some minced, pre-cooked eggplant:

Saute the eggplant in some broth, stock or red wine. When the liquid evaporates, add in your aromatics then your eggs. Sprinkle some herbs, maybe some grated cheese of your choice.
