Homemade Gnocchi

Try this gnocchi recipe with your favorite sauce.


1 ½ lbs. russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 cup flour
1 organic egg or 3 tbsp. egg whites
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper

1) Place prepared potatoes in a large kettle and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes or until tender. Drain. Return potatoes to the pan.

2) Over low heat, stir the potatoes for 1-2 minutes or until steam has evaporated. Press through a potato ricer or strainer into a small bowl and cool slightly.

3) Using a fork, make a well in the potato mixture. Sprinkle with flour. Whisk the egg, salt & pepper together and pour into the well. Stir until blended.

4) On a lightly floured surface, knead 10-12 times, forming a soft dough.

5) Divide the dough into 4 portions. On a floured surface, roll each portion into ½ in thick “ropes.” Cut into ¾ inch pieces. Press and roll each piece with a lightly floured fork.

6) In a large kettle, bring water to a boil. Cook the gnocchi in batches for 30-60 seconds or until they float. Remove with a slotted spoon. Keep warm.

7) Serve with your favorite sauce.
