Easy Gnocchi Made with Instant Mashed Potato Flakes

You can easily make gnocchi using instant mashed potato flakes.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Instant mashed potato flakes
5 tablespoons
Boiling water
150 ml
Plain flour
1 scant cup (60-80 g)


1. Add the mashed potato powder into a bowl, and mix in the boiling water. If you use the kind I usually get (from Costo), it should already be seasoned, so you won't need to add any seasonings.
2. Add the flour, and mix well.
3. Roll into a ball.
4. Form into 2 cm diameter balls, and flatten with a fork. When you press down the top and bottom surfaces with the fork, they absorb the sauce more easily, so I recommend doing it.
5. Boil water in a pot and cook the the flattened balls from Step 4 for about 3 minutes until they start to float.
6. Serve on a plate, and done.
7. I mixed them with tuna tomato sauce this time.
8. It's also delicious to add wiener sausages and broccoli, and serve with cream sauce.
