Gnocchi with a Ham and Leek Sauce

Gnocchi, Gnocchi, Gnocchi – there are so many good dishes you can make with Gnocchi! Today I opted for a creamy ham and leek sauce that brightened up the leftover Gnocchi I had left in the freezer. So here you go:

Ingredients (for 2 people):
Gnocchi (here you can find the homemade Gnocchi recipe)
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of flour
1.5 dl milk
1 dl of vegetable stock
1 small onion, chopped
1 small clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 leek, washed and chopped
80g ham
pinch of nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste

In a small pot, melt butter and add the onion and garlic glove. Sautée until softened. Add the chopped leek and the flour and mix everything. Deglaze with your vegetable stock and your milk. Bring to the boil while stirring. Let everything simmer at low heat for 10 minutes (or until the sauce thickens) while stirring from time to time. Add the ham and season to taste.

In another pot, boil salted water and add the gnocchi. Let them simmer for 5 minutes or until they swim on the surface. Remove the gnocchi and add them to the sauce and mix everything.

Plate up and enjoy!
