I’m coming back with a delicous and easy recipe which is simply perfect for the season! Most of you must have tried gnocchis before but have you ever tried Parisian gnocchis? Well unlike the Italian gnocchis, these ones are not made out of potatoes. In fact, the dough is the same as the one for puff pastry but is boiled instead.
Parisian gnocchis are very soft and have almost a creamy texture. Usually they are prepared with béchamel sauce and cheese but I wanted to make a lighter version. I paired my Parisian gnocchis with vegetables roasted with olive oil and herbes de provence. The dish itself is quite simple and I love the combination of the soft gnocchis and the lavorful vegetables.
Let’s start cooking!
- 6 eggs
- 200 g flour
- 100 g butter
- 200 ml water
- 1 medium zucchini
- 2 yellow peppers
- 2 medium tomatoes
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp herbes de provence
- Salt and pepper to taste
1- Pour the water in a pot and let it boil. Add in the butter and let it melt on medium heat. Then, add in the flour and season with salt to your taste. Mix well. Cook the mixture for a couple minutes in the pot until it stops sticking.
2- Remove the pot from the heat and let the mixture cool down for about 10- 15 min. Then, add in the eggs one by one and mix well. Pour the mixture in a piping bag.
3- Boil a large pot of water with a pinch of salt. Pipe the dough on top of the pot of boiling water and cut strings of dough of about 2 to 3 cm.
4- Slice all the vegetables and add them into a mixing bowl. Add some olive oil, herbes de provence and salt and pepper to taste. Pour the vegetables on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 min at 355F.
5- Add some oil in a non stick frying pan. Add in the gnocchi and cook them for a couple of minutes. Then add in the roasted vegetables and mix well. Serve on a plate and enjoy!
Parisian gnocchis were a first for me and I must say that I really enjoyed it! I was suprised by the texture which is quite different from the Italian gnocchis. It’s makes a great summer dish!
