Roasted Tapenade Gnocchi

Tapenade is an olive paste that adds a huge dollop of flavour to this gnocchi dish. You’ll roast the gnocchi instead of boiling it, giving it a good crunch.

1. Heat your oven to 200°C/Fan 190°C/Gas 6. Peel and cut your onion into thick wedges. Halve your tomatoes and cut each half into 4. Place onto a baking tray lined with foil. Drizzle over 1 tbsp olive oil and seasoning. Put to one side.
2. Peel and grate or crush the garlic clove. Place it into a roasting tin and mix in 1 tbsp oil. Place in the oven for 5 mins to warm the oil. Tip the gnocchi into the tin and toss it in the garlicky oil. Season.
3. Put the gnocchi in the oven for 25 mins. Place the veg tray on the shelf below the gnocchi and roast for 25 mins too. Toss the veg half way through and give the gnocchi a good shake.
4. If your olives aren't pitted, scoop out the stones. Place half the olives and half the roasted tomatoes in a food processor. Blitz with 2 tbsp water till puréed. This is your tapenade. If you don’t have a food processor, finely chop then mash the olives and tomatoes together.
5. Take the gnocchi out of the oven. Add the tapenade to the rest of the roasted tomatoes and onions. Toss them all together. Tear the mozzarella and add to the dish. Slide back into the oven for 10 mins to melt the mozzarella.
6. Remove from the oven and scatter over the remaining olives. Tear over the basil leaves - Add the rocket. Toss everything a few times to mix it. Serve the roast gnocchi and veg in warm bowls with a good grinding of black pepper.

Gnocchi, Gnocchi every night...OK well may be not but this dish was saucy and definitely hit the spot.Sorrel your a star,I LOVE ABEL AND COLE


I didn't think I liked gnocchi, but when it came as a 'surprise, surprise' entry in my veg box, along with some tomatoes (a packing mistake) I had to make something with it all! This actually turned out to be quite nice, and it went down well with the boyfriend, so a success all round!



Tasty tapenade. I've made it a couple of times since getting it in the recipe box!



thanks for this very nice & quick recipe I've just used for dinner. Was called amazing by my boyfriend #success



Would have been good to remind people that olives are not pitted.Just spent 20 minutes trying to sieve the tapenade!
