Vegan Gnocchi with Zucchini Ribbons & Parsley Brown “Butter”

Ingredients:
1 pound fresh or frozen gnocchi
2 tablespoons butter
2 medium shallots , chopped
1 pound zucchini (about 3 small), very thinly sliced lengthwise (see Tip)
1 pint cherry tomatoes , halved
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated vegan Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions:
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook gnocchi according to package instructions until they float, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, melt non-hydrogenised margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the margarine is beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add shallots and zucchini and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add cherry tomatoes, salt, nutmeg and pepper and continue cooking, stirring often, until the tomatoes are just starting to break down, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in Parmesan and parsley. Add gnocchi and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Tip: To make “ribbon-thin” zucchini, slice lengthwise with a vegetable peeler or on a mandoline slicer.
