Have you ever tried gnocchi fried? When you do, you can’t go back. I used to think that gnocchi was soft and slimy if not cooked properly and then I discovered this way… it tastes amazing! Gnocchi is something I love to cook and yet I don’t have it often. When I do eat it, I really enjoy it! I hope you like this simple yet dreamy light dinner or lunch recipe! Let me know if you have a go at making it! I’ll definitely be making this again soon…
- Place the gnocchi in a small saucepan and cover with freshly boiled water from the kettle. Bring to the boil and cook on the hob until the gnocchi start to float (this should only take a few minutes).
- Meanwhile, heat a shallow pan on a medium heat with the butter and using a slotted spoon place the gnocchi into the pan. This helps to drain the gnocchi without making it mushy by putting it in a sieve or colander.
- When the gnocchi start to go crispy on one side turn them over and cook on the other side. You may need to add a little bit more butter to prevent the gnocchi sticking to the pan.
- Meanwhile, cook the edamame beans as per the instructions on the packet and then add them to the crispy gnocchi.
- Slice the lettuce into small chunks and add that to the pan for a few minutes, just to soften. Cooked lettuce is so yummy!
- Drizzle a little garlic oil over the top and season the dish with salt and pepper.
- Serve between 2 plates and enjoy!
Will you be making this for lunch or a light dinner?
