Step 1 of 5
To prepare the gnocchi, bake the potatoes for 35 to 40 mins or until well done. Peel, mash and mix them with the flour, basil, parsley and eggs to form a soft dough. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts; roll each to take the sausage shape, and cut with the back of the knife into 2 cm-thick pieces.
Step 2 of 5
Cook the gnocchi in batches. Add about a quarter of them to boiling water and cook for 2 to 3 mins until they rise to the surface. Lift out with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl of iced water. Leave for a minute or so, then drain well and pat dry with kitchen paper. Repeat to cook the remaining gnocchi, always returning the water to a boil in between.
Step 3 of 5
When the gnocchi are cooked and cooled, combine them in a bowl and then cover with cling film and chill until required.
Step 4 of 5
To make the salsa, dip the tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds to loosen the skins, then in cold water to refresh; drain and peel away the skins. Quarter, core and de-seed the tomatoes, finely chop the flesh and place in a bowl. Mix the MAGGI® Vegetable Bouillon cubes with the hot water and add the chopped tomatoes along with the other salsa ingredients. Toss to mix and season well, then spoon into a serving dish.
Step 5 of 5
When ready to serve, place the gnocchi in a baking tray, brushed with the olive oil, and bake in the oven until it is golden brown and crispy on both sides. Drain on a kitchen paper and keep warm, dress on a warm tomato salsa and serve.
