One pan gnocchi and turkey hash

Quick, delicious and relatively healthy for you.


3 tbsp olive oil

250g turkey mince (breast or thigh)

½ tsp paprika

350g fresh gnocchi

200g shredded kale, washed and large stalks removed

½ lemon, zest and juice

20g Parmesan cheese, finely grated


Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large frying pan. Add the turkey mince and, over a medium heat, break it apart with a spoon, then season with the paprika and some salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, so any liquid evaporates. When the mince starts to turn golden, transfer to a plate and set aside.

Heat the remaining oil in the same pan and add the gnocchi straight from the pack (no need to parboil first). Fry them until crisp and golden, turning occasionally to allow all the sides to brown, and season well. Break up a few slightly with a spoon, so you get more crispy bits.

Return the mince to the pan, allowing it to brown a little more. Add the kale and fry until it has wilted slightly, then mix in the lemon juice and toss everything together.

Divide the mince between 2 warmed bowls, season with black pepper and top with the lemon zest and Parmesan.
