House made sweet potato gnocchi I cooked for dinner last night…
1kg of sweet potato
2 egg yolks
1 1/4 cup of flour
Plus Flour to spread on the counter for rolling and cutting the gnocchi
Cook the potatoes and transfer it to a strainer so you can take all the water out…
On a container, mash the potatoes and add salt
Add 1/4 of the flour to cool it down before adding the 2 yolks… do not add the yolks if it’s hot still..
Add the 2 yolks and the rest of the flour until and mix it until it reaches the desired consistency…(consistency is good if you can roll it without getting sticky in your hands)
With the flour on the table you can begin to roll it until you make a “snake” with 1cm diameter and cut it into pieces…
Boil water in a big pan and add ten pieces at a time, remove them when it starts floating on the surface and place it on a container with olive oil…
For the sauce I cooked 3 small tomatoes and added a little tablespoon of pesto… but you can cook the sauce you’d like..
