Kumara, Horopito Gnocchi w. Pan Fried Lamb & Chimichurri Dressing

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 15 min     

Serves: 4

Dietary: Lamb


500g Pasta Vera – Kumara, Horopito Gnocchi

2 lamb loins

Drizzle oil


Large handful parsley, finely chopped

1 tbsp dried or ¼ cup fresh oregano, finely chopped

½ cup oil

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

2 – 3 cloves garlic, crushed

1 small red chilli, deseeded, chopped

1 small red onion, finely chopped

Salt and pepper


Rub the lamb with a little oil, season with plenty of salt and black pepper.  Drizzle a little more oil into a non-stick frying pan (or you could BBQ it).  When almost smoking hot, gently place the loins into the pan and fry to your liking – for medium rare – 10 – 12 mins in the pan. 

I like to remove from the pan, just before it’s ready as it will continue to cook once it’s on a plate.  Cover with foil and leave to rest.

Fill a saucepan of water, season generously with salt. Bring to a boil.  Gently tumble in your gnocchi.  When they float to the surface, drain and set aside.

In a smaller bowl add the dressing ingredients, mix well.  Taste and season.

Add the gnocchi toss gently through the dressing.

Slice your gorgeous lamb. 

SERVE: Spoon the dressed gnoochi onto a large serving platter.  Top with the lamb and any juices on the plate.  When serving individually, add a spoonful of dressing to each plate.

Jax Says: This dressing is sensational with any grilled meat, fish or tofu.  Also with Pasta Vera linguine and smoked chicken.
