Salsa verde gnocchi
Recipe photograph by Gareth Morgans
This salsa verde gnocchi uses punchy capers and anchovies for its pesto-like sauce. It's an excellent low-cal dinner if you're in a hurry

Ingredients

  • 300g gnocchi
  • 1 x 200g pack sugar snaps, halved
For the salsa verde
  • ½ x 30g pack tarragon, leaves picked
  • 1 x 30g pack flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked
  • 30g blanched almonds
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp capers, rinsed
  • 3 anchovy fillets in olive oil, drained and chopped (omit if vegetarian/vegan and replace with olives or extra capers)
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar

Step by step

  1. For the salsa verde, pulse the tarragon, parsley, almonds, garlic, capers and anchovies (or olives), in a small food processor until coarsely chopped. Add the mustard, olive oil, vinegar and 2 tablespoons water, and pulse again to a chunky pesto consistency. Set aside (this can be made a few hours ahead).
  2. Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the gnocchi and sugar snaps and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the gnocchi float to the surface and the sugar snaps are just cooked. Drain well and return to the pan over a low heat before stirring in the salsa verde to coat and warm through. Divide between two bowls and serve.
