Gnocchi is Italian, but it’s simple, healthy and elegant so this dish fits perfect in the Scandinavian kitchen. It’s so simple to prepare and for all meat lovers out there, I don’t think you will even notice that this dish is vegetarian. And you know what, dinner is ready in less than 15 minutes!
Ingredients (4 pers):
- 1 pack fresh gnocchi (Trader Joe’s has great Italian gnocchi)
- 2 tbs butter
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 2-3 garlic cloves
- 1 small onion
- 12 oz mushrooms (I used organic baby Bella “cremini” mushrooms and Shiitake mushrooms)
- 1 tsp sage (or fresh sage)
- 6 oz baby spinach
- salt and pepper
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 0.25 lb parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp truffle oil (or fresh grated truffle)
Boil the gnocchi as described on the packaging.
Clean and slice the mushrooms in thin slices. Peel and cut the onion and garlic. Fry the onion and garlic in a pan with half of the butter and oil. Add the mushrooms and let them fry until softer and smaller.
When the gnocchi is ready, fry the gnocchi in a pan with the rest of the butter and the oil. Add the sage.
Add the fried mushrooms to the gnocchi. Add the spinach and let is shortly fry. Flavor with salt, pepper, lemon juice and truffle/truffle oil.
Place the dish on plates and sprinkle grated parmesan cheese over!
