  • 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.
