Rustic Gnocchi with Chard and Jalapeños

Light and easy vegetarian warm summer salad.
  • 0:50 TIME
  • 10 portions

INGREDIENTS

500g ready prepared MAGGI® Mashed Potato (cold method)

400g plain flour

2 medium eggs, beaten

20ml olive oil

150g Swiss chard, washed

750g MAGGI® Rich and Rustic Tomato Sauce

50g green sliced Jalapeños

METHOD

Prep: 30 minutes. Cook: 20 minutes.

  1. Mix the cold mashed potato with the flour and beaten eggs in a large bowl. Do not over mix.
  2. Bring a large pan of water to a simmer.
  3. On a well-floured surface and working in batches, roll the potato mix into long sausages about 1 cm in diameter.
  4. Using a knife cut lozenges about 3cm from each roll. Do not worry if they look a little rustic.
  5. Drop the potato lozenges into the simmering water in batches. Once they have floated to the top, they are cooked.
  6. Remove with a slotted spoon onto a greased tray. At this point the gnocchi may be chilled or frozen for later use.
  7. In a frying pan, add the olive oil and quickly sauté the chard before removing and setting aside.
  8. Add the cooked gnocchi to the pan and gently brown them.
  9. When cooked, take out and in the same pan add the tomato sauce and warm through.
  10. To assemble the dish, first add the sauce, followed by the gnocchi and then the chard.
  11. Finally, finish with a sprinkle of jalapeños.

CHEF'S TIP

Add that touch of professionalism by topping with shards of parmesan and cracked black pepper. Great served on its own or with meat and fish.
