Mushroom Ceviche and Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Ceviche is one of my go to recipes for summer! Fast, easy and delicious!

I made a twist for this version using gnocchi instead of just cooked sweet potatoes and I strongly advise you to add this step to your recipe too! It’s delicious and completes this meal with perfection!

For 2-4 people

  • 1 small onion, sliced 
  • ½ cup frozen corn
  • ½ avocado(or a whole one for the avocado lovers), chopped
  • 1 handull cherry tomatoes, cut in 4 
  • ¼ cup Nori flakes(dulse also works)
