Potato Gnocchi

Potato Gnocchi

These are springy gnocchi with a light potato flavour.
Try serving them with your favourite sauce, or even just seasoned with some pepper.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Potatoes
300 g
Cake flour
70 g
Salt
a pinch

Steps

1. Peel the potatoes, chop them into chunks, and heat for 5 minutes in the microwave until cooked through.
2. While the potatoes are still hot, mash them and then mix them with all of the other ingredients until a ball of dough forms.
3. Turn the dough out onto a dusted surface and stretch it into a long roll shape. Cut the roll into bite-sized pieces with a fork and roll each piece into a small round. Then make some indentations on the top with the back of the fork.
4. Boil the gnocchi in plenty of hot water seasoned with 1 teaspoon salt (not listed in ingredients).
5. Once the gnocchi float up to the surface of the water, drain them, and coat them with your choice of sauce or olive oil to serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

I didn't have any bread or rice one morning so decided to whip up some gnocchi instead.
