Recipe • Gnocchi in Garden Veggie Chicken Soup

Image
While I want to introduce a variety of new food to my boys, they are not big fans of pasta in "unusual sauces" besides the basic tomato sauce! Incorporating new ingredients to my usual cooking method or presenting it Asian style will be easier to win them over! The boys have macaroni soup very often for their lunches, so I decided to replace macaroni with Casa Rinaldi's gnocchi. These ready-to-cook gnocchi are really convenient and a great substitute, the boys enjoyed eating it! :D
I guess it's comfort food! No wonder they say chicken soup for the soul!

Baked Cheesy Gnocchi in Japanese Curry

Image
Have you tried gnocchi before? These are plump little lumps of pasta made mostly of potato and eaten as a form of pasta dish in Italy. The Italians usually eat it with pasta sauce as part of their staple dish. Some of them panfry this and coat with cheese.
For this Casa Rinaldi x Singapore Home Cooks collaboration, I cooked it in Italian-Japanese fusion style, Baked Cheesy Gnocchi in Japanese Curry. This is a must-try... Chewy gnocchi in savory curry sauce and crusty melty cheese!

We are a Japanese food loving family! Somehow it's always easier to find suitable food within a teishoku (Japanese set meal) for both Lil K and Mini K.
Japanese Pork Katsu is one of our favourite. I cook it often and usually will cook extra to keep for Lil K's lunches.
Oh! Talking about crispy breaded pork, here's another recipe!

Presenting...
Pulut Hitam Kanten which is Black Glutinous Rice Agar Agar.

Usually bubur pulut hitam is eaten hot like sweet porridge with a drizzle of coconut milk/cream
but my mum made it as kanten that's eaten chilled. Very refreshing for a change!
