Easy peasy gnocchi feeds me

A bunch of my friends on Instagram have been making gnocchi so I decided that it can’t be that hard and that I’d try it out!

Little did I know I’d be right and this will probably become one of my favorite go to recipes!

The recipe I followed said it was for four people... what a LIE so I’m going to triple the portion for you and say that’ll be four to five portions.

You will need:

750g potatoes
360g plain flour

That’s IT!

What you’re going to do is
1) peel the potatoes, cut them into smaller pieces and boil them in water for about 15/20 minutes
2) once they’re soft enough squish them (like you’d be making mashed potatoes)
3) slowly knead in the flour, only adding more once it’s completely gone
4) once the dough is soft (not sticky) roll it into a ball and cut it into four pieces
5) roll these pieces into long strips and cut them into smaller pieces
6) these you can then squish with a fork! Not completely as you still want them to be fluffy
7) get a big pot of water to boil
8) add the gnocchi, not all at once though! Bit by bit!

You’ll know they’re ready when they float to the top!

I served these gnocchi with a super delicious tomato sauce which I’ll be posting about in another post!

Good luck and Bonne appetite
