Gnocchi has to be one of the best types of pasta. It is surprisingly easy (and quick) to make and will fill you up. This is a gluten- and grain-free version, perfect for those with an intolerance. When paired with the pesto it will blow your socks off!

Spinach gnocchi

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2kg potatoes, peeled and chopped
300g english spinach, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
260g buckwheat flour
basil leaves, to serve

Basil pesto

Quantity Ingredient
100g basil
almond oil
olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 lemon, zested
40g pine nuts
2 tablespoons cashews
40g almonds

Method

  1. To make the gnocchi, start by steaming the potatoes until soft, around 15 minutes. Transfer them to a bowl with the spinach and mash until smooth. Add the salt and flour and, using your hands, gently work the mixture to make a dough.
  2. Sprinkle a work surface with flour and roll the dough into 2.5 × 1 cm cylinders and chop into 2.5 cm pieces. Gently flatten the top of each gnocchi with a fork and set aside to dry for about 20 minutes.
  3. For the pesto, combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blitz until smooth but still chunky (or to your desired pesto consistency).
  4. To cook the gnocchi, place them in boiling hot water and when they rise to the top, remove them.
  5. Toss the gnocchi in the pesto and serve with micro basil leaves on top.
