Gnocchi with Creamy Sauerkraut Sauce

This decadent Gnocchi with Creamy Sauerkraut Sauce combines three of my favourite things, potatoes, cream & sauerkraut. It might be a little naughty but who cares when the taste is just to die for.

Potatoes & sauerkraut are a match made in heaven and this little tweek is just perfect for those cold nights. Combining different european flavours, this gnocchi with creamy Sauerkraut sauce is very easy to make and just amazingly delicious. Every bite is like a world tour of flavours, starting with a slightly sweet cream sauce and gnocchi, followed by the salty sour sauerkraut, then the bitter radicchio in the background completes a wonderful taste explosion.

If you’re feeling confident, you can make your own sauerkraut, but the jar stuff is great as well. The best quality sauerkraut is usually in the refrigerated section where it’s likely to be raw and unpasteurized. It’s healthier and will have more tang too. With the gnocchi, you can make that from scratch but I generally buy it from the store as time is precious to most of us during the busy working week.

You are going to love this dish. It’s going to be hard not to go back for seconds. It also pairs with a nice glass of dry riesling just quietly. Cheers!
