Cauliflower Feta Gnocchi

So I love gnocchi, but I don't eat potato because of all the starch. This has left me gnocchi-less for a few years...SO I got to work in the kitchen making gnocchi with cauliflower mash and feta cheese and I was very proud that this worked out! I was taking them to a dinner so I was nervous cooking something new for an audience, but everyone really loved them :-)

Allergy Resume: grain free, gluten free, nut free

2 1/2 pounds Cauliflower
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon Feta Cheese
2 tablespoons Coconut Flower
4 Eggs
1 tablespoon Garlic Minced
1 tablespoon Pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Cut cauliflower into large pieces and bring to a boil in a large pot of water. Boil for about 15 minutes or until soft. Remove cauliflower from heat and place cauliflower (without water) in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add feta cheese to the food processor and blend again. When mixture has cooled a bit add eggs and coconut flower, blend again. Next add your seasonings: Garlic, and pepper is what I choose, but basil, or other Italian seasonings would be nice too. Line a cookie sheet with Parchment paper and place quarter sized dollops of batter on sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, the bottoms will be golden brown with the tops a light brown color. Let them cool for about 5 minutes then they will be ready to serve. To reheat pop them back in the oven for a few minutes.
