A simple and easy-to-prepare dinner – delicious gnocchi with browned butter and roasted mushrooms and broccoli. Nothing else is needed ;)



1 broccoli head, cut into florets
34 brown mushrooms, quartered
17.6 oz. (500g) gnocchi
23 tbsp. olive oil
salt, pepper
3 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. lemon zest

some parmesan cheese for serving (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C). Line two baking sheets with baking parchment and set aside.

2. Clean the broccoli and cut it into small florets. The stem of the broccoli can also be used and cut into small pieces. Clean the mushrooms and quarter. Add both to a large bowl, drizzle with some olive oil and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to one of the baking sheets and distribute evenly on top. Add the gnocchi to the same bowl, drizzle as well with some olive oil, and season with salt and pepper – add them to the second baking sheet. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes. When the time is up, flip the broccoli and gnocchi and switch the positions of the baking sheets, and continue roasting everything for another 10 minutes. The broccoli should have some darker roasted spots here and there. If you want the gnocchi crispy, leave them in the oven for another 5 minutes.

3. While the broccoli and gnocchi are still roasting in the oven you can prepare the browned butter. To do so add the butter to a large frying pan and melt over medium-high heat. Cook the butter until you see brown spots on the bottom of the pan. Remove from the heat.

4. Add the roasted gnocchi and veggies to the pan and mix with the browned butter. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Transfer to plates and serve with some grated parmesan cheese (optional).


Enjoy cooking!
