I found this recipe for Vegetarian Gnocchi online from Woolworths Taste Magazine. The flour didn't really stick to my brinjals, so I would suggest dipping the brinjal in egg first and then into the flour. Other than that, it's quick to prepare (I used store-bought gnocchi), easily serves four people and it's really filling. Oh and did I say it's delicious? Bon Appetit!
1 cup canola oil
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 handful cherry tomato halves
1 x400 g jar ready-made Neapolitan pasta sauce
1 handful chopped basil
500 g cooked gnocchi
125 g torn mozzarella
1) Trim and cube the brinjal, lightly dust in flour and deepfry, in batches, in hot canola oil for 3 minutes, or until golden. Drain on kitchen paper.
2) Fry the crushed garlic and onion, finely chopped, in olive oil until translucent.
3) Add a handful cherry tomato halves and fry until just starting to catch. Add the ready-made Neapolitan pasta sauce, the fried brinjal and chopped basil and toss.
4) Add the cooked gnocchi, mozzarella, season to taste, toss and serve immediately.
