It’s not often that gnudi is considered light fare, but under the erudite and worldly eye of chef Hari Pulapaka, this Italian staple takes a trip around the Mediterranean, incorporating greens, beans, and meyer lemon to balance its indulgent base. Served at Pulapaka's recent Beard House dinner, the dumpling itself is infused with herbaceous spinach, creamy ricotta, and the bright meyer lemons, with the addition of a green garbanzo hummus, earthy tomato jam, and spicy almonds. Complex and intriguing as a plated dish, the components are also stars in their own right. Get out of your Bolognese rut with this vegetal variation, brimming with enough green goodness to make you feel just a bit virtuous. Get the recipe.
