Pulled Pork Gnachos
We’ve all been there, stocking up on 8 bags of Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi only to stare into your freezer wondering what to do with it. Sure, you could pair it with your basic pasta sauces. But why not live a little? And using cauliflower gnocchi as the base for BBQ pulled pork nachos is my definition of living!
The recipe calls for air frying the cauliflower gnocchi, but an oven will get the job done all the same. You’ll also need a prepared BBQ pulled pork. I’ve linked to my favorite recipe, but you could use any recipe or even pulled pork from your favorite grocery store/restaurant.
If you steer clear of red meat, I have a great Instant Pot pulled BBQ chicken recipe as an alternative. And if you’re in a pinch, rotisserie chicken with a little extra BBQ sauce will get the job done.
Oh, and if you still have 6 bags of gnocchi to use, try the pizza cauliflower gnocchi next.

What’s shakin’ bacon? I’m Mason, a personal trainer turned food blogger and current leader of the Proton Party. You can find me cookin’ up a storm over on Kinda Healthy Recipes or blogging with my wife on With the Woodruffs.
I got into the fitness industry in college while studying to become a Registered Dietitian. It didn’t take long to realize I was more passionate about preventative care and performance nutrition than medical nutrition therapy. That led to personal training, which turned into writing about training and nutrition. Which eventually evolved into creating healthy-ish recipes.
It’s been a fun ride, and I’m excited to lend an oven mitt to The Hungry Truth!
