Sweet potato garlic gnocchi


  • Pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork and wrap them in parchment paper. Microwave them for 15-17 minutes at 800W until they soften.
  • Carefully cut them in half and let them cool. Remove the flesh with a spoon and place them in a bowl.
  • Mash the sweet potato with a fork.
  • In the bowl, add the egg, the flour (the amount depends on how much moisture the sweet potato will release), salt and pepper. Mix until you create a dough that doesn’t stick to your hands.
  • In the meantime, place a pot full of salted water over high heat and bring to a boil.
  • Use a spatula to transfer mixture to a pastry bag without overfilling it.
  • Dust the kitchen counter or any surface with flour. Using the pastry bag, make strings of dough. Repeat the process so that you have multiple strings on your counter. Using a knife cut 1 cm stripes creating small dough rectangles. Press each gnocchi’s surface with a fork.
  • In a deep bowl, add ice water to be used later.
  • Lower heat. When the water simmers, add the gnocchi. When they come up to the surface, fish them with a spaghetti spoon and transfer them to the bowl with the ice water.
  • When finished, remove the gnocchi again with the spaghetti spoon. Drain and wipe with a paper towel.
  • In a non-stick pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the gnocchi for 2-3 minutes until slightly golden.
  • Add the butter, garlic, chili flake and mix using a wooden spoon.
  • Sauté for 1 more minute and serve with parsley.
