Burnt Butter Garlic And Sage Gnocchi

Jump to Recipe

Have You Tried To Make Gnocchi?

If you haven’t, you gotta try. The end result is so much fluffier and lighter than the store bought ones and they cook faster too.

I usually make a huge batch and freeze them for when I’m craving a fluffy gnocchi carb fix…lol

Here I heated up 2 tbsp of dairy free butter, chucked in 4 cloves of crushed garlic, a handful of fresh sage from the garden and let it bubble till it goes slightly brown. Then I tossed in the cooked gnocchi, together with 1 cup of the pasta water (water gnocchi was cooked in). Added some more butter and gave the whole thing a good toss. Serve with a sprinkle of dairy free nut parmesan and some more fresh sage. Yum!

The fresh garlic, sage and a hint of smoky burnt butter, combined in this salty creamy sauce, coating every bit of the soft pillowly gnocchi dumplings, is a flavoursome treat with every delectable bite.

Delicious food doesn’t have to be complicated or store bought!

Give this one a go.

Recipe Notes

Cooking time may vary depending if gnocchi is home made or store bought.

I love intense flavours, so you can reduce the qty of garlic and sage if you think it might be too strong for you.
