I remember the first time I had gnocchi, it was in Carluccio's Caffe at Bluewater Shopping Centre. I know that not everyone likes gnocchi. But I love it, light and fluffy potato dumplings. They are so simple to make too.
Potato Gnocchi (Serves 2)
- 400g potatoes
- 100g flour
- 1 egg yolk
This week in the box we got some spring greens. I thought about making a pesto with it but I chose to do this instead.
I chopped an onion and lightly fried it in olive oil. I then added the spring greens which were finely sliced, after a couple of minutes I added some vermouth and let it reduce a little. At this point I would have added some creme fraiche but I didn't have any, so I substitute it with some yoghurt. Then stirred in some pecorino.
I put the gnocchi in an ovenproof dish and put the spring green mixture over the top and finally some mozzarella. This was then grilled until golden.
Andrew was a bit worried cause there wasn't a sauce as such but apparently it was actually quite nice!
