Gnocchi, Gnocchi everywhere.
I was craving Gnocchi like crazy for a long time now. But I couldn’t bring myself to buy them. The ones that taste good cost a fortune and the servings are so small that you are never sated. So why not make them from scratch? Good question! After googling some recipes I was surprised how easy it seemed to be. Of course I aimed for a Paleo friendly version and changed a few ingredients. The first time they turned out perfect! I didn’t write down the measurements.
Second time, all prepared for taking notes and pictures of the Gnocchi later I failed miserably. It wasn’t just not pretty but not edible!
Third time I tweaked the measurements a bit and again: wonderful! Better than the first version actually.
- 1 large Sweetpotato
- 1/2 coconut flour
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp tandori masala
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 3 tsp curry powder
- 1 large bell pepper
- 1 zucchini
- 250g cocktail tomatoes
- 300ml tomato sauce
- salt & pepper
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp sambal
- Cook, bake or microwave the sweetpotato until soft
- Give it to a food processor and blend, now add the coconut flour and spices and blend again - if you don't have a food processor you can also just use a fork to mix everything together
- Give the dough into a bowl, add the egg and knead with your hands until well incorporated
- Now form the Gnocchi out of the dough - it's easier if you form a large roll and cut it into little pieces, roll them with your hands until they look like small eggs
- Place the Gnocchi carefully on a baking tray and bake in a fan oven at 180°C for approximately 10-12 minutes
- Melt some coconut oil in a frying pan and add the gnocchi - fry until lightly brown
- In the meantime give all the veggies on a baking tray and bake for about 15 minutes
- Give the veggies in the pan, now add the tomato sauce and spices and stir well. Let it cook for a few minutes and enjoy warm
Making Gnocchi from scratch might sound a bit intimidating but it’s actually really easy. They are very yummy – still a bit creamy in the core and crunchy from the outside. As a plus they are Paleo and gluten-free.
