10-minute Creamy Korean Gnocchi

I love creamy gnocchi, but how about trying it with a Korean twist? A packet of store-bought fresh gnocchi, a few other ingredients (including your fave and mine, gochujang) and you have a super quick, extra tasty 10-minute dish that will surprise and delight you with its depth of flavour.

PREP TIME

COOK TIME

SERVES

Ingredients

500g (1 lb) store-bought fresh gnocchi

½ cup guanciale, cut into lardons

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 tbsp gochujang

½ cup Chinese Shaoxing wine 

1 cup cream

4 kale leaves, stem removed, cut into large pieces

¼ cup finely grated parmesan

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Steps
  • Step 1

    Bring a large saucepan or a pot of water to the boil. Add the gnocchi and cook, stirring occasionally, until they rise to the surface.

  • Step 2

    Pan fry the guanciale in a frying pan until slightly crispy and most of the fat has been rendered out. 

  • Step 3

    Add in the chopped garlic and gochujang, then stir until everything is mixed together.

  • Step 4

    Deglaze the pan by adding in the Chinese Shaoxing cooking wine and cream. Stir to mix everything together.

  • Step 5

    Drain the gnocchi and add to the sauce mixture to let it cook further.

  • Step 6

    In the meantime, blanch the kale in the same saucepan or pot that was used for boiling the gnocchi.

  • Step 7

    Add the kale into the gnocchi and sauce mixture, as well as the grated parmesan. Stir to mix everything together.

  • Step 8

    Divide the gnocchi among bowls. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, then serve immediately.

Absolutely amazing!

We totally loved it! It was a real treat and so easy! I was even told that I could make it two nights in a row. Real mid-week winner.

Rich But Interesting

We found this recipe a smidgen on the rich side as written. However with minor modifications, we will keep returning to this recipe because it’s interesting and flavourful. We substitute half-n-half for the cream and only use half the Shaoxing wine, ensuring the sauce reduces enough to cook off the vapors and mellow out. We’ve also tried low-sodium bacon in a pinch (drained of excess grease), and look forward to trying this with chicken sometime too.
