🍴Homemade Gnocchi

Ingredients at a glance:

– 6 large Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered

– 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

– 1 Tablespoon Salt

– 3 cups Flour

– Pot of salt water, brought to a boil

 

Instructions:

1. Peel and quarter 6 large russet potatoes

2. Place in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, pole holes in the cover and microwave on the “potato” setting (about 20 minutes)

3. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, pulverize them either with a potato ricer or grater

4. To the bowl with the grated potatoes add

👉1 tablespoon olive oil

👉1 tablespoon salt

👉3 cups flour

5. Mix well and knead into a dough. If dough is falling apart add more flour, if it seems to dry add a bit of water. Keep kneading until a large dough ball forms.

6. Divide into sections and roll each into a long snake. Cut the thin snake into small 1/2 inch pieces and (optional) roll each cut piece over the back of a fork to create a line pattern (this is intended to create ridges that catch sauce)

7. Set all the prepared, raw gnocchi on a towel sprinkled with flour until you are ready to boil

(At this point they can be frozen and stored)

8. Drop the gnocchi into a pot of salted water and allow them to cook until they bob up to the surface, this takes about 3 minutes

9. Remove the gnocchi from the water with a slotted spoon and mix with your favorite sauce, or (as shown) just garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper!

ENJOY!!
