Preparation of green gnocchi with broccoli and almonds

  1. Wash and clean the broccoli and divide them into florets.
  2. Put a pot of water on the stove, bring it to a boil and pour the florets.
  3. Boil them for ten minutes. Drain them but remember to save some of their cooking water.
  4. In a non-stick pan, toast the almonds for 4-5 minutes over low heat. Make them jump constantly because they tend to burn very easily.
  5. Pour the florets, oil, goat cheese, and almonds into the glass of a blender or blender. Also add a couple of tablespoons of the broccoli cooking water.
  6. Blend until you have a smooth and homogeneous mixture , and add more water until you have the desired consistency. The mixture must be sufficiently creamy to be able to season the gnocchi. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. In the meantime, you have put a pot full of water on the fire. Salt it and bring it to a boil.
  8. Throw the green gnocchi into the water, when they rise to the surface, after 3-4 minutes , they are cooked.
  9. Drain them with a slotted spoon and put them in a tureen.
  10. Dress them with the broccoli and almond cream. If everything is too dry, add a couple of tablespoons of the cooking water from the broccoli or gnocchi.
  11. Divide into plates, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and garnish, if you like, with a little boiled broccoli and flaked almonds.
