Creamy Broccoli Gnocchi

Who doesn’t love pasta?  “Eat Good Food” between the two Holiday’s


3 tablespoon creme fraiche (sour cream)

1/2 tablespoon dijon mustard

1/2 lemon and juiced

long stem broccoli, each cut into 3 pieces

350g fresh gnocchi

2 tablespoon olive oil

100g frozen peas

1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts


Mix together the crème fraîche, mustard and lemon juice. Set aside. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Once boiling, add the broccoli and cook for 3 minutes, then tip in the gnocchi. Cook until the gnocchi begins to float to the surface, this will only take 1 minute so keep an eye on them, then drain.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and, once hot, tip in the gnocchi, broccoli and frozen peas. Toss around in the hot oil for 1 minute, then stir through the crème fraîche mixture. Season to taste. Once hot, spoon into bowls and top with the lemon zest and pine nuts.

You can always make your own gnocchi!
