Peter piper picked a pick of pickled peppers...




Life is so busy, but that's no excuse for bad food. After a long Monday I do need some carbs.  Gnocchi is a great comfort food.  I didn't make this batch (hey, it's Monday) but I do usually and it's super easy! This roasted pepper gnocchi with seared tuna is devine, and ready in fifteen minutes. I always change what I put in it, but you can't go wrong with a lot of fresh herbs.

Pop some peppers in a roasting tin with a drizzle of olive oil - I love the tiny ones but the large cut into chunks are fine. 

While these are roasting (about 180degrees for 15mins) simmer 2 finely diced garlic cloves in some olive oil slowly. 

Put the gnocchi on - boil for around 3 minutes.

Sear the tuna steak in a pan with a touch of olive oil for about 3 minutes on each side, more if you like it less rare.

Add a handful of fresh chopped basil to the garlic. Add in the peppers and gnocchi.  Toss onto a plate and top with the tuna.

Easy peasy, very tasty and super good for you - even with the carbs! Enjoy x
