    Pan-fried gnocchi with broccoli, hazelnuts and garlic

    It’s worth browning off the cooked gnocchi, as the crisp texture turns this dish into something special.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 4


    4 tbsp essential Waitrose olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    1 red chilli, thinly sliced
    200g essential Waitrose cherry tomatoes, halved
    220g Tenderstem broccoli
    500g essential Waitrose potato gnocchi
    2 tbsp hazelnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
    1 essential Waitrose lemon, zest
    4 tbsp shaved gran moravia vegetarian cheese (or parmigiano reggiano) 


    1. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large frying pan and gently sauté the garlic and chilli until golden – about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, then remove from the heat and set aside.

    2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the broccoli and simmer for 1 minute, then scoop out, rinse in cold water, drain and roughly chop. Add the broccoli to the tomatoes.

    3. Place the gnocchi in the boiling water; when they float to the top, after 2-3 minutes, scoop them out, then dry on kitchen paper. Reserve a cupful of the cooking water.

    4. Heat a second frying pan with 1 tbsp oil. Add the gnocchi and fry for 5 minutes, until golden on both sides. Reheat the sauce, add the gnocchi and gently mix together with the remaining 1 tbsp oil and a splash of the reserved cooking water. Sprinkle with the hazelnuts, lemon zest and cheese to serve.
