Gnocchi with Seasonal Greens in a Butter Sauce

Homemade gnocchi w seasonal greens

Last week I shared with you my soft and fluffy gnocchi recipe. Here is what happened to my little pillows of potato goodness, I mixed them up with some of our veggies from the garden and some of our homegrown chicken in a butter sauce. Honestly this meal is 99% from our farm, just the flour and butter is bought.

The only sad thing about this dish is that you can hardly see my efforts of my homemade gnocchi. In a way it’s probably a good thing as they were not too pretty. The taste sure made up for that though.

With the start of the broccoli bursting, last seasons broad beans, freshly shelled peas along with homegrown heritage breed chicken tossed through a lemon (my first from our tree) butter and sprinkled with fresh herbs. Is your mouth-watering yet, mine is and I only ate this a few days ago and now I want it again.

What are you eating from your garden at the moment?

  1. Oh look at all of the great flavours in here! Gosh I love gnocchi… it’s one of my biggest weaknesses! Love how you’ve added in broad beans too.

  2. Oh this looks SO good! I just want to gobble it ALL up! I adore a good pasta dish.

  3. Broad beans have just finished here – they have the shortest season of around 3 weeks so you have to be quick. How satisfying to eat a meal that you have virtually grown yourself.

  4. This is a great looking dish! Love combining pasta with greens, and the texture of gnocchi is perfect for a dish like this. Really like this — thanks.
