Homemade Sweet Potato Gnocchi
Delicious 2 ingredient Homemade Sweet Potato Gnocchi that's gluten free & vegan!
gluten-free white flour + more for dusting
(Roughly 1 ½ cups)
Pre-heat your oven to 180C
Prick your 2 sweet potatoes with a fork and place in a baking dish. Place in the oven at 180C for 60 minutes (turn after 30 minutes). You can microwave each potato for 8 minutes if you prefer
Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and carefully peel off the skin and place the inside flesh into a bowl and mash with a fork
Allow to cool for 10 minutes
Slowly add in the 180g flour and gently kneed with your hands
Transfer the dough to a floured worktop and form a ball (you may need extra flour!)
Cut into 4 parts, hand pressing each part into a flatbread shape (½ inch thick). Cut into small pieces and roll with your hands into gnocchi shapes (follow the photo above in the blog post)
Now place into a large pot with salted boiling water, don't add them all at once (give them space to boil) and boil until they start to float off the bottom (or 2-3 minutes)
Once boiled remove from the pot and place into a bowl lined with kitchen roll, this helps to absorb any leftover liquid
Finally you can either fry them in a pan with olive oil to make them crispy or just add directly into your pasta sauce!
You can freeze these gnocchi. I personally like to freeze mine after I boiled. Allow to cool before freezing! More info on this above in the post.
