Pan fried gnocchi with toasted Haloumi, extra virgin olive oil, pumpkin, garlic, sage and walnuts. Elegant enough for a special dinner and fast enough for a weekday family meal.


  • 500g potato gnocchi
  • 1 180g pack Lemnos Haloumi, cut in 2 cm cubes
  • 400g Kent or butternut pumpkin, peeled and cut in 2 cm cubes
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup sage leaves, washed
  • ½ cup walnuts pieces
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cook the gnocchi following the manufacturers instructions and drain.
  2. Add oil to a large frying or sauté pan on a medium heat, fry the sage leaves until crisp, remove from the pan and drain on absorbent kitchen paper. Leave the sage flavoured olive oil in the pan.
  3. Add the Haloumi and pumpkin to the frying pan cook until the pumpkin is tender and both the Haloumi and pumpkin are turning lightly brown normally about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the cooked gnocchi and walnuts, cook for another couple of minutes until the gnocchi just starts to brown, add the crushed garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
  5. Season to taste.
  6. Serve immediately in bowls with a sprinkle of crispy sage leaves.
