The French gourmet company ADF - Alain Ducasse Formation developed with the French company GEM 11 recipes for ESA in a research project defining nutrition for astronauts on future long-duration space missions. At least 40% of the diet should consist of nine basic ingredients which ESA envisions to grow in greenhouses on other planets. They are: rice, onions, tomatoes, soya, potatoes, lettuce, spinach, wheat and spirulina.

Space recipe 'Spirulina Gnocchis': This dish has been created in the traditional way of making gnocchi. Beyond the nutritions aspect provided by the spirulina, its original green colour marries perfectly with the tomato sauce. The basic ingredients are potatoes, spirulina and tomatoes, all envisioned to be grown in space, on Mars or other planets. The recipe was developed for ESA, in a research project defining nutrition for astronauts on future long-duration space missions.

The basic ingredients are wheat and tomatoes, both envisioned to be grown in space, on Mars or other planets.
