SWEET POTATO PESTO GNOCCHI

This was only our second ever attempt at making home made gnocchi.. and I must say, this time has been far more successful than our previous try! Instead of using regular potatoes like in the traditional method, here we’ve switched these up for sweet potatoes; which I think gives them a lot more flavour because you get that subtle sweetness coming through. My favourite pairing for gnocchi is by far a good old bit of pesto.. pesto just makes everything taste good doesn’t it? It’s such a quick and simple way to pack a flavourful punch to pretty much any dish, I just love it! 

SWEET POTATO PESTO GNOCCHI

INGREDIENTS
  1. 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  2. Pinch salt and pepper
  3. Dash mixed herbs
  4. 1/3 cup gluten free flour
  5. 1 clove garlic
  6. Olive oil for cooking

INSTRUCTIONS
  • To make the gnocchi, combine the sweet potato, seasonings and flour and mix until well combined and you’re left with a dough mixture.
  • Spread a little flour onto a cutting board and roll out the dough to form a long sausage shape. Cut into small thumb sized pieces.
  • To create the rolled effect, press each piece of gnocchi against a fork and roll towards you.
