The custom is to eat gnocchi on the 29th.

Legend has it that we will be lucky all month long.

The tradition is quite old.

Legend has it that St. Pantaleon was welcomed by a humble family, who served what was at home.

It was just seven pieces of baked pasta.

The saint ate, thanked, and went his way.

But in collecting the dishes, the family found money under each one.

From there, the “gnocchi of luck” was born.

Thinking about the advantageous exchanges, I decided to eliminate the carbohydrate and gluten load from the recipe.

So potatoes and wheat flour come out and the incredible green banana biomass comes in - read more here.

Your starch is the tough type.

Therefore, it is not absorbed by the body, passing straight through the stomach.

And in digestion, it generates a byproduct (butyric acid) that helps regulate blood sugar.

The following recipe is ready in 20 minutes.

And yields four servings with 142 Kcal each.
