Chopped Cauliflower

You'll need...

1 large head of cauliflower

200g plain flour

2 eggs


4 leaves of fresh sage

50g butter

Salt and pepper

Chop your head of cauliflower into 4 sections while waiting for water to boil in a saucepan. Place the cauliflower into the saucepan and boil until soft.

Place in a large bowl and use a masher to break the cauliflower down into a mash. Season with salt and pepper and crack in two eggs.

Sift in flour, and use your clean hands to mix the ingredients together to create a dough.

Raw Gnocchis on Floured Surface

Scatter flour on a clean surface and knead out your dough before sectioning it into four pieces.

Roll out each section into a long, thick, rope-like shape and slice it into your gnocchi shapes, around 1 inch wide each.

Boil the gnocchi for 2-3 minutes in a saucepan, before straining and setting aside.

Melt your butter in a thick pan and allow your sage leaves to simmer in it for 2 minutes on a medium heat before adding in your gnocchi and stirring it to coat it for 5 minutes.

Serve with a sprinkling of coarse sea salt and a little grating of fresh parmesan.
