  • 25g/1oz butter

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 onion, finely sliced

  • 2 tbsp plain flour

  • 400ml/14fl oz milk, Simple Cow, free range, whole milk

  • 1 tsp mustard, Dijon or English

  • 200g/7oz frozen broccoli florets

  • 100g/3½ oz frozen peas

  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7.

  2. Heat the butter and oil together in a shallow, flameproof casserole over a low heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring regularly until softened.

  3. Sprinkle over the flour and stir well then gradually add the milk, just a little at a time, stirring well between each addition to make a smooth sauce. Stir in the mustard and half of the cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  4. Stir in the gnocchi, broccoli, peas and tomatoes and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring.

  5. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and bake in the oven for 12–15 minutes, or until golden-brown and bubbling. Carefully remove from the oven and serve.
