Creamy Chorizo and Pea Gnocchi


This is another firm favourite in our house; mainly because it is so fast to make and because no one could turn down smoky, salty chorizo mixed with soft pillows of gnocchi.

You could, of course, use your own homemade gnocchi if you have the time to make it, but I find fresh shop bought gnocchi fine.

You could also substitute different vegetables, but the texture of peas works so well with chewy chorizo and melt-in-the-mouth gnocchi.

This will serve 4 easily, and is ready in 15 minutes.

Creamy Chorizo and Pea Gnocchi

250g chorizo sausage

1 onion

25ml sherry

500ml chicken stock

500g fresh gnocchi

400g frozen peas

30ml double cream

25g fresh chives

1. Slice the chorizo and put in a high-sided saute pan on a high heat. Allow to crisp, then add the chopped onion.

2. Sizzle for 30 seconds then add the sherry. Allow to bubble down, and then add the chicken stock.

3. Bring to the boil and add the gnocchi and peas. Simmer for 4-5 minutes, until the gnocchi is cooked through (you know it’s cooked when it’s squidgy to the touch).

4. Stir in the double cream and chopped chives, then season.
