Cajun Shrimp Gnocchi

You know you want some….

Comfort food. I seem to be craving it ALL. THE. TIME. Therefore here’s another great comfort food recipe. I posted how I made in on Instagram- in my highlights. Follow me at @therealwendypaul.

1 1/2 lb. large shrimp , shelled and prepped

1 lb. pkg. gnocchi

1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

1/2 onion, diced

1/2 cup cilantro

1 tsp-1 tbsp. Cajun seasoning

2 cups Vegan protein Broth- Sam’s choice or other broth

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1 tbsp. Basil paste

1 tsp. Badia complete seasoning

1 tsp. Kosher salt

In a large skillet, over medium high heat, saute the onion in a little butter for 2-3 minutes. Then add the gnocchi and slightly brown the outside. Season the shrimp with salt and Cajun seasoning. Once it’s browning, the add the shrimp and stir to combine. Then once the shrimp is almost pink (2-3 minutes more) add the tomatoes, Badia complete seasoning, broth and basil. Simmer for 2-3 more minutes. Add the Parmesan cheese and if your sauce is too thin, make a quick cornstarch slurry ( 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1 tbsp water, mix together- add to the simmering liquid while stirring to thicken).

Top with more Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh cilantro. Quick and easy. Dinner is done. This is for sure a pantry staple item. Gnocchi. And any protein would work if you don’t have shrimp!
