Gnocchi is so expensive in Asia, though it is made of nothing more than flour and potatoes. My daughter made this, and it was absolutely delicious. That’s with some modification to the traditional recipe (we added some pumpkin because we didn’t have enough potatoes).
- Two cups of diced potato and pumpkin (she used 3/4 potato to 1/4 pumpkin)
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 egg
- Salt and pepper
For the butter:
- 1/2 a cup of butter
- 5/6 cloves garlic
- A sprinkling of dried sage (or chopped fresh ones)
Boil the diced potato and pumpkin until tender (but still firm). This would take about 15-20 minutes. Mash them up and all the other ingredients. Roll the dough out into tubes and cut the tubes into bite-size portions.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Drop in gnocchi and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until gnocchi have risen to the top; drain and serve.
In the meantime, melt the butter in a small pan. Saute the garlic until soft but not browned. Add the sage. Pour over the gnocchi.
