Gluten Free Potato & Ricotta Gnocchi (Julia’s twist)
(I use a digital scale)
100g Well and Good Gluten Free Pastry Flour
400g Desiree potatoes (washed), peeled, quartered
¼ cup parmesan cheese finely grated and extra for garnish
1 large egg
Salt & ground white pepper
In large pot boil potatoes until tender, drain well.
Mash potatoes, set aside in a bowl to cool.
Add ricotta, I used spatula to fold in and mix thoroughly.
Then add flour, mix thoroughly.
Whisk egg separately, add parmesan, salt and pepper.
Mix until all ingredients are well combined and dough forms.
Turn out on lightly floured surface, knead until smooth.
I sliced the dough length ways and rolled in long logs about 2cm thick. The knife needs to be floured so no sticking occurs. Then sliced the logs 1 ½ cm in width. Place on lined tray.
Bring a saucepan of salted water to boil over medium heat. Add gnocchi one batch a time, not to over crowd the pot.
Cook for about 2 mins or until the gnocchi rise to the surface of the pot.
Use a slotted spoon to drain gnocchi, transfer to a serving dish, add sauce.
Sauce (or sauce of your choice)
Ingredients for the sauce
1 small onion
6 rashes short cut bacon
4 small button mushrooms
2 teaspoons garlic
½ cup white wine
½ cup cream
2 tablespoons of butter
Chopped chives, parsley and grated parmesan to garnish.
Cook chopped bacon first, remove. Lightly brown diced onions and diced mushrooms. Add garlic (add extra oil if needed).
Add white wine, butter (when butter has melted add cream) and return bacon.
Simmer till sauce is slightly thicker. Toss through the gnocchi till completely coated.
Garnish and serve. Enjoy.
