Gorgonzola Cauliflower Gnocchi with Pears

Servings 4 servings


Cauliflower Gnocchi

  • 3 cups riced cauliflower (or 1 head) liquid squeezed out with a towel
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • kosher salt

Gorgonzola Pear Sauce

  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 2 thyme sprigs
  • 1 ripe pear peeled and cut into small chunks
  • 1 cup gorgonzola roughly chopped
  • 5 Tbsp milk
  • 1 pinch grated nutmeg plus extra to serve
  • 1 pound gnocchi
  • kosher salt to taste


Cauliflower Gnocchi

  • Rice the cauliflower using a food processor.
  • Melt mozzarella in microwave, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in egg yolks, parmesan, and almond flour into the cauliflower. Season with salt. Stir in the melted mozzarella (you may need to use your hands to mix well).
  • Divide dough into 4 balls and refigerate until firm, about 10 minutes. Roll out each ball into long logs and slice into gnocchi. Gently press a fork on top of each gnocchi to create grooves.

Gorgonzola Pear Sauce

  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. In a large frying pan, melt the butter over a medium heat, add the thyme leaves and pear chunks and stir-fry for about 30 seconds. Stir in the gorgonzola, add the milk and nutmeg, and stir well until the cheese melts. Turn the heat down to low.
  • When the water in the saucepan is boiling, drop in the gnocchi and cook for 1–2 minutes or so, until the gnocchi float to the top. At this point, use a slotted spoon to transfer the gnocchi into the creamy sauce and mix well to combine.
  • Add a little kosher salt to taste, remove from the heat, and serve immediately with a little extra grated nutmeg.
