Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 heaped tbsp plain flour
  • 350ml milk
  • 280g light cream cheese
  • 100g spinach
  • 100g kale
  • 1 small broccoli head, cut into small florets
  • 600g ready-made gnocchi
  • 30g grated parmesan or vegetarian alternative

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion over a medium heat for 5 minutes or until it starts to soften. Add the flour and fry for a minute more before gradually whisking in the milk. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens and bubbles, then reduce the heat and stir in the cream cheese. Turn off the heat.
  2. Heat the grill to medium-high. Boil a large saucepan of water. Put the kale in a colander and pour over a kettle of boiling water. Drain, refresh with cold water, then squeeze out as much water as possible. Add the gnocchi and broccoli to the boiling water and simmer for 4-5 minutes, then drain and pat dry. Stir the veg and gnocchi into the sauce, then pour into a 1.5 litre baking dish. Sprinkle over the grated cheese and grill for 15 minutes or until golden.
