I’m a huge fan of wild garlic. If you haven’t noticed here, here and here (or even here and here – what can I say?! I’m obsessed). Do you like the taste? It’s not only about that for me but going out and collecting your own food – pretty great! So I’m looking for new recipes and rehashing old ones – so I tried this wild garlic gnocchi with a recipe I’ve tested here. I mean: Ricotta gnocchi are so good! And easy to make.
All you need is:
- 100 g ricotta
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbsp flour
- 1 Tbsp grated cheese
- 6 Tbsp of chopped wild garlic
- a handful of fresh tomatoes
- 2 Tbsp almond slices
- salt and pepper
Bring a pot of saltwater to the boil. Put the ricotta, egg, flour, 4 Tbsp of wild garlic and 1 tablespoon grated cheese into a bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until all ingredients are well combined. Take a teaspoon and form little drops of the ricotta mix and roll them in flour until all the mixture is gone.
Put the gnocchi into the hot water and cook until they’ve risen to the top for another minute. Take them out.
Roast the almonds in a pan until golden.
Put the ricotta gnocchi, tomato halfs, the rest of the cheese, almonds and wild garlic as well as a little salt and pepper on a plate.
Serve right away.
I wish I could eat this every day – but then I’d miss out on all the other great recipes with wild garlic. What are you making? Any recipe ideas that you’d like me to try? I’d love to hear them.
Now. carry on!
