Mushroom & Blue Cheese Gnocchi

A super easy to make vegetarian dish that is guaranteed to lift any spirits!


  • 800g fresh gnocchi
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 500g portobello mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 150g creamy blue cheese (we recommend gorgonzola or Danish blue)
  • Handful of basil, roughly chopped
  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and drop in the gnocchi, cooking according to packet instructions (usually around 3-5 minutes). Drain, and set to one side.
  2. Heat the oil and butter together in a large, lidded frying pan before throwing in the onion and mushrooms. Cook for 1 minute over a high heat, then reduce the heat to medium. Clamp the lid on and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  3. Remove the lid, then add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes. Stir in the gnocchi, then scatter over the cheese and basil. Serve immediately.
