Shakshuka

I’ll confess, I’m not much of a breakfast person. I’ll often skip it during the week, and at the weekends I’ll often have something with meaty or with lots of carbs.

Garlic & Herb Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Pine Nuts

I love gnocchi, but one of my favourite things to do with it isn’t boiling it, like is usually directed on the packet, but roasting it in a little oil in the pan. It makes for a much better texture and can be the basis for some wonderful meals. This one is a great combination as the slight crispiness of the gnocchi and the crunch of the pine nuts contrasts…
