Easy Rustic Gnocchi


  • 400g floury potatoes
  • 250g mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • 50g plain flour
  • 75ml olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper
  • A good handful of fresh thyme or oregano or basil (or any combo!)
  • 50g Parmesan cheese


  1. Wash and peel the potatoes, cut into 2-3cm cubes and cook in a large pan of boiling salted water for 12 minutes, or until tender. 
  2. Meanwhile, slice the mushrooms (if large) or quarter them (if button)
  3. Drain the potatoes in a colander and leave to dry for a couple of minutes, then return to the pan and mash well. Season to taste with sea salt and black pepper, then tip on to a clean work surface. 
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the potato and knead together with your hands. Divide into 24 pieces and roll between your palms to make little uneven gnocchi
  5. Very gently fry the mushrooms and garlic (if using) with the olive oil in a large pan, stirring to cook on all sides. If you like your gnocchi spicy, add sliced fresh chilli or dried chilli flakes now!
  6. Wash and chop the herbs
  7. Set a large pan of water to boil, add 1 tsp salt
  8. Drop the gnocchi into the boiling water for about 1 minute, until they float.
  9. Drain the gnocchi, retaining about a cupful of the cooking liquid.
  10. Add the drained gnocchi and chopped herbs to the frying pan with the mushrooms and stir vigorously to combine. Add the grated parmesan and a little of the cooking liquid to make a sauce


You can add black olives, dried tomatoes, bottled artichokes or almost any chopped vegetable (cooked first) to make this into a really original vegetarian dish!
