I’m doing a DeNiro in Raging Bull. Except I hope to lose weight not gain it. I’m plunging myself into the vegan mindset. I’m going the whole hog. (But no hogs of course.) I’m interested to see how my body reacts to being vegan. I’ve been doing it for eight weeks now. The first couple of weeks was hard but now hey, I’m cool with it. Interestingly my sugar cravings have reduced. I do miss my beloved Marmite on toast with shitloads of sea salty butter though.
So here is a recipe I did for Kenwood full of hot melty cheesiness and fluffy potatoey gnocchi, baked. I’m fine. Don’t worry about me. You go ahead. Enjoy yourself. Don’t mind me. Sniff.
Nanny Savino’s baked cheesy gnocchi recipe
1 kilo of floury potatoes (usually about 3 or 4)
250g Italian 00 flour
1 clove garlic, cut in half
200ml double cream
200g of strong cheddar, grated
Bake the potatoes in the oven from 45 minutes to an hour. The skins should be crispy and the insides soft, prod with a fork to check. Once cooked, let the potatoes cool for 5 minutes then cut them in half and scoop out the flesh. (You could use the potato skins for another recipe)
