A Gfree Story Shared From Our Readers: "My Gluten Free Gnocchi from Toronto Gone Bad"

Gluten Free Gnocchi from Toronto
I recently purchased a package of frozen Gluten Free Potato Gnocchi made by Pasta Co from Whole Foods in Toronto.  I love finding new and interesting gluten free pastas and I was eager to try this one as it satisfied my vegan dietary needs as well.

Cooking instructions were as follows: 
"Drop frozen Gnocchi into boiling water and stir for 2-3 minutes."

I did as instructed.  To my dismay all the gnocchi seemed to fall apart and turn to mush!  It looked like a pot of wet mushy mashed potatoes and resembled something I might use for paper mache.  I thought "what the heck, I might as well taste it and see if I could salvage part of it and turn it into something else." 

I tried draining the mush and tasted it.  BLECH.  It was horrible!  I have no words to describe it.  Needless to say, I will not be purchasing this product again.  I would be curious to know if anyone has had success with this gnocchi.  I know there are some decent Gluten free gnocchi products available from the Italian Market in Edmonton.  I cannot wait to try!

  1. There is a Rice gnocchi at the italian centre. We eat it and its pretty good. I think it may say "processed in a plant that contains wheat". We eat it an have no side effects.
