– 70 g millet
– 2 tbsps. Grana Padano grated
– 5 basil leaves coarsely chopped
– 1 egg, 1 yellow sweet pepper
– 1 sweet red pepper
– 1 tsp. red-hot chilli powder
– 100 mg cream
– 8 tbsps. dry breadcrumbs
– 1 l frying oil
– EVO to taste


Quickly roast the peppers over high flame and then peel them. Right after, by using an immersion blender, purée the peppers along with the cream. Set aside. Meanwhile, cook the millet in a glass of salted water for ab. 20 minutes. Once cooked, drain and let the millet cool. Then, combine the millet with 2 tablespoons of Grana Padano, egg and basil, dressing with some salt and pepper to taste. At this point, manually shape the millet into small gnocchi and roll them into the breadcrumbs. Fry the gnocchi in hot frying oil, then dry them off by using absorbing kitchen paper. Set aside. Meanwhile, cook the pepper velouté for ab. 4-5 minutes so that it will heat up and thicken a little, adding a pinch of salt halfway through if necessary. Remove from heat and pour the velouté into bowls placing the crunchy gnocchi on top. Sprinkle with some red-hot chilli powder to taste, drizzle a little EVO and serve.
