As summer comes to an end the days are getting a bit chilly and I’m in need of my comfort food recipes. One of my favourite soul food recipes are these homemade herb gnudi with radicchio in nut butter. They are a bit like gnocchi or little dumplings with ricotta and your favourite herbs. I like the pairing of herb gnudi, rich parmesan, tasty radicchio and hazelnut butter. It’s such a satisfying recipe!

With this delicious ricotta dumpling recipe I don't mind autumn at all!
For the herb gnudi: Wash and roughly chop your favourite herbs. Put them into your highspeed blender with half of your ricotta and blend until smooth. Now add the herb ricotta to the other half of your ricotta, parmesan, egg, nutmeg into a big bowl. Mix together and season to taste with salt and pepper. Now gently mix in flour until dough just comes together. Tip it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Divide the dough into thirds, roll each piece to a 2 cm diameter rope, cut into 2 cm lengths into little pillows.
In the meantime bring a big pot with salted water to a boil. Cook gnudi, in batches, until they rise to the surface (takes about 2-3 minutes). Transfer with a skimming spoon into a sieve and drain with cold water.
Wash and cut radicchio into 1 cm strips.
Meanwhile, cook butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add rosemary, thyme and a few leaves of sage and wait until butter starts to brown. Add the gnudi, stir in radicchio and season to taste.
Divide onto your plates and drizzle some nut butter over it. Sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts and parmesan. Bon Appetit!
