  • Cooking time: 15 min
  • Ingredients: 1 cup chopped asparagus, 1 cup peas, pre-made gnocchi (or store bought), olive oil, parmesan
  1. Place pot of water on to boil for gnocchi.
  2. Break the ends off the asparagus and then roughly chop into pieces.
  3. Put the asparagus and peas in the steamer basket of the Babycook®.
  4. Pour water into the tank to level 3.
  5. Start the cooking process.
  6. Meanwhile, once the pot of water is boiled, place gnocchi into the water and scoop out once it floats to the top. (This means it is cooked). Fresh gnocchi usually takes less time to cook than store-bought.

Chef’s tip
If your little one is not ready to eat chunky veggies, puree them and serve with the soft gnocchi to eat as a finger food.
