Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g purple sprouting broccoli, trimmed
  • 500g gnocchi
  • ½ lemon, juiced

SAUCE

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or crushed
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 75g butter
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 30g parmesan (or veggie alternative), finely grated, plus extra to serve
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the olive oil in a pan over a medium heat and fry the broccoli for 5-10 minutes or until it begins to crisp up.

  • STEP 2

    While the broccoli is frying, make the sauce. Heat a medium/large frying pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil. Cook the onion until turning translucent, then add the garlic and chilli, and cook for 5 minutes. Add in the butter, lemon juice, parmesan, mustard and plenty of seasoning, and cook on a low-medium heat until the cheese is melted and everything is combined (reserve a little sauce to drizzle over the broccoli). Simmer over a low heat while you cook the gnocchi following pack instructions. Drain the gnocchi, saving a little of the cooking water, and tip everything into the sauce, adding a little of the reserved cooking water to loosen if needed.

  • STEP 3

    Serve in warm bowls topped with the broccoli, a squeeze of lemon juice and extra parmesan, if you like.
