Cake and Whisky
Delicious and ready in just 10 minutes, this spring gnocchi with tomato and wild garlic dish is the perfect easy dish to celebrate the season!
- 250 g fresh gnocchi
- 150 g cherry tomatoes (cleaned and chopped in half)
- 1 bunch wild garlic (cleaned, pat-dried and roughly chopped)
- ½ small Onion (finely chopped)
- 1 tbsp plain flour
- 1 tbsp olive oil ((divided))
- enough neutral oil (rapeseed works well) to cover the bottom of a small saucepan (for frying))
- 20 g feta cheese (crumbled)
- salt, pepper, chilli flakes to taste
- In a small bowl, combine the flour with a good pinch of salt and a bit of black pepper, then add the onion and stir until it's all well coated.
- Pour enough neutral oil to cover the bottom of a small saucepan. Bring it to about 190°C (it should sizzle slightly). Drop the coated onion bits in and cook for a few minutes, until the onion is golden. Remove from the oil with a spoon, place onto a few layers of kitchen towels, season with a little bit of salt and set aside.
- Bring some salted water to the boil, then cook the gnocchi according to packaging instructions (usually 1-2 min). Rince with cold water and drain well.
- Heat up a big cast iron skillet (or non-stick pan). When it's hot, add in the gnocchi and the halved tomatoes. Cook for about a minute, then add 1 tbsp olive oil and the wild garlic and cook for another minute.
- Remove from the heat and transfer onto a plate. Crumble the feta cheese on top, sprinkle with a little pinch of salt flakes and chilli flakes to taste, drizzle with the remaining olive oil and serve immediately.
