Yield: 2
Pan Toasted Brown Butter Gnocchi with Grilled Corn + Scallions
Total Time:
30 mins
  • 2 cups cooked gnocchi, I used whole wheat
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 ears sweet corn
  • 4 scallions/green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons brown butter
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 fresh basil leaves, torn
  1. Preheat your grill to medium heat. Brush the corn and scallions with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle them with the salt and pepper. When the grill is hot, place the corn and scallions directly on the grates. Cook the scallions for 1 to 2 minutes, flipping them during cook time. Cook the corn until the kernels soften and turn golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes, turning the corn as you go. [As a note, I do this while the water is coming to a bowl and the pasta is cooking.]
  2. Once the corn is cool enough to touch, cut the kernels off the cob. Slice the scallions.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the gnocchi and cook until the sides are golden brown and toast, flipping as you go, for about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the gnocchi and add it to a bowl. Toss it in brown butter, then add the corn and scallions. Sprinkle the parmesan and basil leaves on top. Serve!
