Finally, the moment of truth: the taste test.
I divvied up the gnocchi to try it plain, with tomato sauce and then with a brown butter-sage sauce — which is how it's served in the picture on the package. I also enlisted the help of my 7-year-old, who I had to pay to persuade him to try it.
Without anything, the gnocchi are definitely very cauliflower-forward, so they need some kind of sauce if you're not a fan of that flavor. With the sauce, though, the cauliflower taste fades to the background, and the texture is a pretty spot-on stand-in to the traditional soft dumpling..
