Introduction: Coconut Thai Curry Gnocchi

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Gnocchi is a favorite in my kitchen and I know that this creamy coconut Thai curry gnocchi is a must try! I know that some of you are thinking how can it possibly be any good if it doesn't have dairy and it is healthy? Well it doesn't need the dairy to be creamy because the coconut milk makes this dish so creamy. I know that this isn't authentic Thai or Italian food but is still is a great combination of both cultures. This recipe is also great because you can really change it up and make it cater to your own taste. So if you want to know how to make your very own Coconut Thai Curry Gnocchi, follow the step by step instructable below or watch the video tutorial here:
