homemade glutenfree vegan gnocchi and a vegetable sauce
gnocchi: you will need: - 700g potatoes - 115 rice flour - 85g corn flour - salt (optional! i personally don’t use any salt, but feel free to add some)
directions: peel and cut your potatoes and steam them until soft. then you have to mash the potatoes (when still hot). mix the mashed potatoes with the flour and a little water and kneel it until you get an even dough.
fill a pot with water and bring it to boil. once it is boiling turn the heat down a little.
in the meantime you form the gnocchi, put them on a plate and - using a fork- press the typical lines in them!
put the gnocchi into the hot water and wait until they come up. (if they crumble, you didn’t add enough water to the dough!) now, it depends on how big you made them: they’re probably ready by this point, or they will need another minute or two. the best way would be to cut one open and see if it’s done!
after that you take them all out! they taste amazing if they are fried in a pan after that but you can also eat them right away!
this is what i used: - a small yellow Zucchini - two spring onions - a small red onion - two red bell peppers - 1 green bell pepper - 1/2 an eggplant - 10 cherry tomatoes - 1 can of sieved tomatoes - lemon Juice, basil, dried herbs, garlic, one sundried tomato and pepper
directions: cut up all your vegetables and add all of them (except for the tomatoes) into a pan. panfry them until almost tender. then you add the tomatoes and the herbs and seasonings. sprinkle on some lemon juice and panfry for a little while on a low heat. add the sieved tomatoes and your done :)
i hope you enjoy this recipe as much as i do!
this was enough for two hungry carb-loving girls :)
How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?
Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy
Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.
so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic
This revelation just knocked me over.
LET ME TELL YOU A THING ABOUT JOHN RONALD REUEL TOLKIEN. BACK THE FUCK UP SIT THE FUCK DOWN YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING YOU’RE FUCKING JON SNOW HERE. LET ME TELL U A THING
