1 pinch of coriander seeds

For serving

2 sprigs of tarragon

leaves plucked

1 handful of small spinach leaves

1 tbsp sesame seeds


1 tbsp herb oil (e.g. tarragon oil)


Put the potatoes in a saucepan, pour in enough water to just cover them, bring to the boil and cook for about 20 minutes until soft. Drain, allow the potatoes to stand for a few moments, pass them while still hot through a potato ricer or sieve into a bowl and allow to cool a little. Add the flour and all the ingredients up to and including the olive oil, quickly work into a smooth dough (do not overknead!), cover and leave to rest for about 30 minutes. Preheat the cooking space to 100 °C using the steam mode. Shape the dough into walnut-size balls and place on an oiled perforated stainless steel tray. Put the tray into the preheated cooking space and cook for about 13 minutes. Take out, melt the butter in a frying pan, toss the gnocchi in it, season with salt.


Heat the oil in a pan. Sauté the spring onion, add the spinach and let it wilt, add the tarragon, season with salt and pepper.

Spring onion hollandaise

Heat the oil in a pan. Gently cook the white part of the spring onions for about 3 minutes, then put into a tall vessel. Blanch the green part of the spring onions along with the spinach in boiling salted water for about 30 seconds, drain. Plunge straight into ice-cold water, drain, dry on kitchen paper and add to the gently cooked spring onions. Add the butter and the rest of the ingredients, finely purée with a hand blender, then strain through a fine sieve. Pour the mixture into a whipping siphon, charge with a gas cartridge according to the instructions, shake well. The siphon can be kept warm in a bain-marie until ready to serve.

For serving

Place the spinach on a pre-warmed plate and arrange the gnocchi on top. Garnish the gnocchi with the tarragon and spinach leaves and sesame seeds. Drizzle over a few drops of herb oil. Top with the spring onion hollandaise.
