Veggie stew with gnocchi dumplings recipe

0 ratings

A use-it-all-up recipe that makes use of any old vegetables you have left over in the fridge. They’re fried until they soften, slowly cooked in stock, then little gnocchi dumplings are added before serving. It’s a great batch-cook recipe and it’s freezable too. See method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large lidded casserole dish set over a medium-high heat and fry the onion, celery, carrots, parsnips and butternut squash for 15 mins, stirring regularly, until starting to soften, then add the garlic and herbs and cook for 1 min more. Add the tomato purée, cook for 1 min, then stir in the Kallø stock and wine. Put the lid on and allow to gently simmer for 45 mins until the vegetables are soft. 
  2. Put the cornflour in a small bowl and whisk in a couple of tbsps of the sauce. Add the mixture back into the pan and stir in well. Add the mushrooms and kale for another 15 mins, then add the gnocchi, put the lid back on and gently simmer for another 15 mins until the gnocchi are soft and have puffed up slightly. 
  3. Remove the herbs, then serve with a scattering of parsley. Will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Tip: Great for batch-cooking. You can swap the parsnips and squash for other root vegetables that you have in the fridge like swede, or just up the carrots if you have lots. Spinach or spring greens would also work really well in place of the kale. Freeze the stew before adding the gnocchi for up to 3 months.​​

Tip: You can swap the wine for extra stock if preferred.
