  • 2 medium carrots thinly sliced
  • 2 medium courgette thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch asparagus cut into 1cm pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 500 g gnocchi
  • 50 g salted butter
  • 50 g parmesan cheese or a similar veggie alternative, grated


  • Put the gnocchi into boiling, salted water and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Put the olive oil, carrots, courgette, asparagus and garlic into a large frying pan and fry over a medium heat for just a few minutes until beginning to soften.
  • Drain the gnocchi and stir into the veg with the butter and the black pepper.
  • When the butter has melted, it’s ready – the veg should have a little bit of bite.
  • Serve and top with freshly grated cheese.


If you have other leftover veg in the fridge, why not throw it in too? Spinach, courgettes and broccoli florets would all work brilliantly.
