Gnocchi with mushrooms, kale and Parmesan

Gnocchi with mushrooms, kale and Parmesan

Serves 2  | Cooking time including preparation time: 20 minutes


  • 500 g mixed mushrooms, e.g. king oyster, portobello and brown mushrooms
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 100 ml white wine
  • 100 ml chicken stock
  • 100 g bacon
  • Butter for frying
  • 1 handful sliced kale
  • 500 g fresh gnocchi
  • 50 g grated Parmesan
  • Salt and pepper


Clean the mushrooms and cut into bite-sized pieces. Peel and chop the onion and garlic.

Heat the white wine until it has reduced by half. Add the chicken stock, and reduce again by half.

Cook the gnocchi in lightly salted water for 2-3 minutes (or following the instructions on the packet), and drain.

In a frying pan, fry the bacon until crisp, and leave to drain on kitchen roll. Now sauté the mushrooms in the bacon fat until they release moisture and change colour. Add the onions and garlic to the mushrooms and continue to sauté until the onions become translucent. Add the sliced kale and sauté for a minute or so. Add the gnocchi and the reduced wine and stock together with half the Parmesan. Turn everything together, season with salt and pepper, and finally sprinkle with the rest of the Parmesan and the fried bacon before serving.
