  • 4 tbsp Essential 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
  • 1 Waitrose lemon, zested
  • 4 tbsp 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.
