We all know that many of our canned foods leach BPA chemicals.
Eliminating canned foods takes some work. But, here is the good news! There are readily available alternatives to most canned foods like fruit, vegetables and beans. You can buy fresh, frozen, or jared. When it comes to tomato's this is my method of "canned" tomatoes. But being a busy mom sometimes you don't have time to wait for tomatoes to thaw. So I was very pleased to find another alternative to canned tomatoes!
Pomi is All Natural.
No Fat added.
No Sodium Added.
100% from Fresh Italian Tomatoes.
Packaged in a BPA free box!
They are chopped, and strained, perfect for all your fave recipes of sauces, soups, pasta and any recipe calling canned tomatoes!
Now how great is all that!
Pomi is available at select Whole Foods Markets, Stop & Shops, Shop Rite, Publix markets, and Hannaford stores. I would call ahead of time to make sure they carry or even ask them to carry it! They are also available in smaller natural, organic or Italian specialty stores.
And now a yummy recipe! This recipe is from a very good friend of mine! This meal was shared with 8 people with leftovers...would be perfect for freezer cooking, and great for a potluck dish!
- 3 packages of gnocchi (fresh or frozen) cook as directed (one batch at a time!)
- 1 box of Pomi
- 3/4 cup finely grated parmesan or cheese of choice (even cheddar works, as long as it is tangy and hard)
- 1 cup finely chopped greens (chard/spinach/parsley)
- 1/4 pound of bacon (or proscuitto), diced
- 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup sweet pepper/celery/carrot, finely chopped
Bring water for gnocchi to a boil. Cook gnocchi as directed.
Meanwhile - fry bacon, until fat is released, drain and set aside.
Fry onions and vegetables until softened and set aside.
Add Pomi to pan bring to a simmer. Whisk in cheese until dissolved completely. Stir bacon, onion and vegetables back into sauce. Cover and simmer 2 minutes.
Once the gnocchi is cooked (they should still be firm), drain and stir into sauce.
Garnish with parmesan and parsley.
