Fried egg with carrots and gnocchi
This dish I created one day after New Year's Eve. The supermarkets were closed and I decided just to have a look what’s left in the fridge. There´ve been a half pack of dried gnocchi, eggs and carrots. I also had cress. Then I just decided to fry everything in a pan (8 minutes total preparation time). And yes, everything to roast works well. Try it. You'll be amazed.
Like you see on the picture even a cook failed a fried egg at the beginning of the new year.
½ pack of dried gnocchi
1 medium carrot
salt, pepper and if you like chilli flakes too
rapeseed oil (you can
also use margarine)
+ Cut the carrot with a vegetable peeler into fine long strips.
+ Add oil in a pan (medium heat).
+ Put the gnocchi, the sliced carrot strips and the 2 eggs next to each other in the pan. Flavor the carrots and eggs with salt and pepper.
+ Put the lid on the pan. Occasionally turn the gnocchi and carrots.
I love the eggs when they still have a light liquid core. This saves a sauce and tastes wonderful.
If the eggs are done (you can test it by carefully picking them with a knife), garnish with cress and if you like with chilli flakes.
