Ahhh gnocchi. I have always had a love-hate relationship with these little balls of goodness-badness. Goodnes, because they are lovely with a taste sauce. Badness, because traditional gnocchi often results in feeling like I have lead balls in my stomach and I feel blergh.
I’m subscribed to Cupcake Kitteh‘s blog and I squealed with excitement when I saw Mandee post this recipe for gluten free sweet potato gnocchi. I love sweet potato, I had lots of sweet potato so that was what I chose to make for dinner a couple of days ago.
I first made a few small proper gnocchi sized balls with the fork marks as a test because I was worried the mixture was too soft. I needn’t have worried as they turned out fine, especially pan fried in a little oil.
Then the laziness crept in and took over… look, jumbo gnocchi:
These were great! I held my breath when the kids tried some. Arthur’s rating was “38% goodness” so at least I can use this recipe as a base. Husband was out for dinner and didn’t have any. DeeW was not a fan but I didn’t expect her to be as she doesn’t like this kind of texture.
This is such a simple recipe and one I will make again with a really nice pesto 🙂
