Trader Joe's New Kale Gnocchi Is Already Getting Mixed Reactions From Shoppers

Drumroll, please! Trader Joe's is officially expanding its plant-based pasta selection with new Kale Gnocchi. That's right, the gnocchi train never stops at this beloved grocery store.

The Kale Gnocchi joins the ranks of Trader Joe's classic gorgonzola, tomato sauce, mozzarella-stuffed, cauliflower, sweet potato, and chocolate lava varieties. It features a pretty straightforward ingredient list of potato starch, chickpea flour, sea salt, extra virgin olive oil, and, of course, kale. At 190 calories per serving, it doesn't sound like a bad side dish or even main course if you're trying to squeeze in more veggies.

That said, first reactions to the recently discovered product are mixed. Shoppers are on the fence about the addition of kale to such a popular dish. But hey, if you love greens, don't let the haters get you down. The packaging suggests crisping up your gnocchi first and maybe even adding a slab of butter, ghee, or whatever flavor alternative you prefer.
