Today, although I had not planned any lunch (on a diet these days!) I nonetheless got tempted when a friend of mine sent the picture of a new seasonal gnocchi by Chef Akira Oheda at Papa Restaurant in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!
The power of facebook!


Only in Japan, gnocchi made with broad beans and green tea!
No eggs used incidentally, so very healthy!


Served with boiled broad beans, fried mushrooms and broad bean and green tea cream sauce!
