Gnocchi with ginger, cucumber and poppy seeds1 Comment » Oct 27th, 2010 | By Tobias | Category: Pasta & Gnocchi, Recipes
Gnocchi with ginger, cucumber and poppy seeds is a simple and refreshing dish. I made the “rapid gnocchi” that are mentioned in my posts several times. The sauce is even faster to prepare than the gnocchi. In just a few minutes the food is on the table. In this post I will only describe the sauce.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 5 minutes – the sauce only
- 1/2 cucumber
- 2 in ginger
- 2 tbsp poppy seeds
- 2 tbsp butter
- salt and pepper
Dice the peeled ginger finely. Peel the cucumber and remove the seeds from the middle with a spoon. Then dice the cucumber. The pieces can be much bigger than the ginger ones.
Melt butter in a pan. Add the ginger and fry it for a few minutes. Now add the cucumber. The cucumber should only get warm.
Now you can add the readily boiled gnocchi. Toss them in the pan and mix all ingredients well. Season with salt and pepper. Put on a plate and drizzle some poppy seeds over it.
