I first tried to tackle this recipe several months ago. I had an idea for beetroot gnocchi, so I steamed up some beets and potatoes and was all ready to go, when I broke the (brand new) potato ricer. Blurg. We returned it, but it took months for the shop to sort themselves out. Finally, we got a new ricer and decided to take another stab.
Using the recipe for sweet potato gnocchi from Urban Vegan, I baked, mashed, kneaded, rolled, cut and shaped my gnocchi. It is time consuming, but not too difficult. For my first go, though, I was a little nervous of the gnocchi falling apart while boiling so I decided to pan-fry them instead.
This was good, but took a little while because the flour needed to cook. After the gnocchi were done, Andy threw some onions and radish greens into the pan and then tied everything together with pesto and olives. It was delicious!
We have made plain gnocchi since then and will be doing it again in future. But from now on, we'll make double batches to freeze, because it is kind of a long process.
