Gnocchi

Someone make a pillow as soft as these gnocchi. Based on this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1kg potatoes (tbh I didn't weigh, just eyeballed it)
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
  • 1 egg

Steps

1

Boil potatoes until you can slide a knife through. Make sure not to overcook. You don't want waterlogged potatoes. It'll take 15–20 mins.

2

Mix flour, salt and nutritional yeast together. I didn't have parmesan, so I substituted with nutritional yeast.

Pass mashed potatoes through sieve. It'll take a while and your arms will burn.

5

Add potatoes and egg to flour mix and combine. Don't overdo it, you don't want to activate the gluten too much.

6

Roll out to ropes around 1cm thick, then cut off in sections 1.5–2cm long. You could roll them down a fork, but not necessary.

Bring salted water to the boil and then drop the gnocchi in. Drain when they're floating. I picked a lemon from our tree (for zesting later). Look how big it is!
