  • 500g ginger

  • 1 lemon juiced (plus some rind)

  • 6 slices bacon

  • 100ml creme fraiche (or full-fat yoghurt at a push)

  • 3 large leeks


  1. Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry until they start to get some colour.
  2. Slice the leeks into thin rounds then add to bacon and turn down the heat a bit.
  3. Once the leeks are almost cooked (soft but no colour) cook the gnocchi - they only take about 4 minutes or until they float to the surface.
  4. When everything is cooked, add the creme fraiche to the leeks and bacon and then add lemon juice to taste, some finely grated lemon rind, salt and pepper.
  5. Tip the gnocchi into the mixture and stir and serve.

Handy Hint

I do sometimes give this to the children, but don't blend it because the potato starch makes it go like wallpaper paste, not nice.
