POTATO GNOCCHI 3 WAYS!

Vegan butter sage sauce - Bolognese sauce - Tomato sauce.

This is one innovative and simpler (and why not say easier) way of making the famous Italian potato dumpling: You skip the boiling, which makes it faster, and also, my version is gluten-free. The result is a fluffy clud texture and the flavor is incredible! And of course, cuz I love you guys so much, I have made three of my favorite sauces: vegan butter and sage, bolognese, and tomato sauce, so you have three options to choose from.

Enough chitchat! Here is the recipe!

• 1,5 Kg / 3.30 pounds starchy potatoes (Yukon gold)

• Vegan butter

Instructions

  • 1.
    FOR THE POTATO GNOCCHI:
  • 2.
    Cook the potatoes in salted water or in the microwave until fork tender.
  • 3.
    Drain and grind the potatoes or use a potato ricer, add to a pot, add the butter or oil (or both), add salt and the cornstarch.
  • 4.
    Turn on the heat to medium, stir for 5 to 7 minutes.
  • 5.
    It is very important to allow the gnocchi dough to cook by stirring from 5 to 7 minutes so the cornstarch cooks completely.
  • 6.
    Transfer to a clean board, wait until it reaches room temperature, cut the gnocchi dough into stripes, roll it, and cut it into small pillows. Use the back of a fork to make ridges in your gnocchi, if you prefer, or use a sushi mat.
  • 7.
    Transfer the gnocchi to a plate, cover with your favorite sauce, and serve it hot.
  • 8.
    FOR THE VEGAN BUTTER AND SAGE SAUCE:
  • 9.
    Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in medium heat, place 10-12 gnocchis, allow it to become golden brown, add a few fresh sage leaves, salt, and pepper, and serve it.
