INGREDIENTS

  • 2 peeled and sliced potatoes
  • As needed but at least a pint of all-purpose flour
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • ¼ cup garden peas
  • 20 fresh tomatoes
  • 10 pieces of sun-dried tomatoes
  • a sprig of fresh thyme
  • 8 leaves fresh basil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the potatoes until they are soft enough to mash for about 25-30 until it’s fork-tender.
  • Mash the potato and leave to cool down before adding to a large bowl with the flour.
  • Stir until the ingredients come together to form a dough.
  • Knead the dough just like any type of dough and set aside for 1 hour so it becomes firmer so it is easier to work with.
  • Roll the dough out into a long cylinder with a circumference roughly the size of your thumb. Cut the dough into 1 cm cubes and roll each piece in flour to coat. With the fork, press gently each piece of gnocchi.
  • Bring a pan of water to boil and cook the gnocchi for one minute

For the sauce:

  • Fry the cubed aubergines and garlic in vegetable oil in a pan.
  • After 3 minutes, add the fresh tomatoes and the sun-dried tomatoes to the pan.
  • Cook for a further 2 minutes before adding the garden peas.
  • Season with a bit of black pepper, salt and add the fresh thyme.
  • Turn the heat off and then add the cooked gnocchi, add basil while gently stirring them into the sauce.
  • Serve and enjoy.
