Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Potato Gnocchi

750 g sweet potato
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup plain flour, sifted
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp Plain flour, extra to knead
5 ml Olive oil

Recipe Directions for Sweet Potato Gnocchi

  1. Bake, Boil or steam the sweet potatoes until tender.

  2. If baking, bake until tender with skin on, allow to cool for 10 mins & peel. If boiling or steaming, drain peel & roughly chop. Once cooked drain well & using a fork, mash the potatoes, adding the nutmeg and season with salt and pepper (S&P optional)

  3. Add the flour, about 1/4-cup at a time, mixing in well after each addition. Slowly add the egg and mix until well combined with the sweet potato mixture. Sprinkle some flour on a flat surface, take the mixture out of the bowl, and lightly knead the mixture. If the mixture is too sticky, simply sprinkle some more flour over the dough and knead the dough lightly again.

  4. After the dough has been kneaded for 2 minutes, cut into four even sized pieces.

  5. Roll the dough out into a sausage width (2cm). The sausage should be quite long (about 40cm)

  6. Using a sharp knife cut the dough into 2cm lengths, then using a fork, press to mark the top of the gnocchi. Place on a floured tray.

  7. To cook, place gnocchi in a large saucepan of boiling water, cooking about 15 pieces at a time. The gnocchi should be cooked when it rises to the surface (about 4-5minutes)

  8. Place warm drained gnocchi in a lightly oil coated bowl & cover with alfoil to keep warm. Add you favourite sauce. Place ricotta on top if desired. Serve immediately.
