Truffle and Ch**se Style Gnocchi
Step 1
Ingredients
400g The Simple Root Truffle and Ch**se Style Sauce



200g mushrooms
– shitake of preference
2 leeks finally sliced
500g fresh gnocchi
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts
Handful chopped fresh parsley
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Once boiling, add the gnocchi. Cook until the gnocchi begins to float to the surface, this will only take 1 min so keep an eye on them, then drain.

Step 2
Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan and, once hot, tip in the mushrooms and leeks. Toss around in the hot oil for 1 min, then gently fry for 2-3 minutes until smelling amazing. Add the drained gnocchi and stir well. Allow the gnocchi to go slightly crunchy and then add The Simple Root Truffle and Ch**se Style Sauce.
Top Tip
You can add peas or broccoli to this dish, just place them in the boiling water with the gnocchi to cook.

Tofu Satay STYLE Kebabs
Step 1
Ingredients
200g The Simple Root Satay Style Sauce



50g Extra sauce for dipping
250g tofu (1 pack)
Open the pack of tofu and drain all liquid. Cut the block of tofu into cubes approx. 2cm x 2cm and place in a large bowl. Cover with 200g of The Simple Root Satay Style Sauce, cover the bowl and marinate for 1 hour or ideally overnight.

Once marinated, take your skewers and place 4 cubes on each one, then place on a lined or greased baking tray. Drizzle any left-over sauce on the top of the tofu.

Step 2
Place the skewers under a hot grill on a baking sheet, and cook for a couple of minutes, or until browned. Turn and cook the other side.
