Gnocchi with Red Beans
Peel the red onion and cut into thin columns. Peel and chop the garlic. Wash the lime and pull off the rind with a vegetable peeler or a knife, then cut into fine strips. Squeeze out the lime juice.
Place the olive oil in a saucepan and fry the ground meat until crumbly and slightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Deglaze with the beef broth and bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, drain the kidney beans in a colander.
Add the beans to the ground meat and simmer, covered, at low temperature for about 15 minutes. Add the gnocchi and simmer another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt, pepper and lime juice. Serve in deep plates, garnished with the lime zest.
