What’s Cooking?…Making Gnocchi

This is how I do it.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium brown onions, finely chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 bunch of fresh continental parsley finely chopped
2 small cloves garlic
40g butter
250g Swiss Brown Mushrooms,thinly sliced
250g Portabello Mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon Porcini Mushroom Salt
300g light sour cream
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 teaspoons Truffle oil or 1 teaspoon shaved black Truffle

Grated Parmesan or Pecorino cheese to serve

Method

In three parts.

Have gnocchi ready.

Make the onion mix and the mushroom mix separately.

In a small saucepan put the olive oil and onions.  Salute until soft and translucent.  Then add the oregano, parsley and garlic.  Saute for a few minutes more until the parsley becomes soft and wilted.
In a medium frypan, on high heat, put the butter and all the mushrooms.  Cook quickly and stir occasionally to prevent sticking.   Add the Porcini salt and pepper.
When the mushrooms are nicely browned and cooked add the onion mix.
Turn down heat.  Stir gently together. Add the light  sour cream.  Stir to distribute.  Add the truffle oil or shaved truffle.  Test seasoning.  Adjust as necessary.
Put the prepared gnocchi onto plates to serve.  Add the Creamy Mushroom and Truffle sauce.

Serve immediately with the parmesan cheese.
