Making GNOCCHI again! This time I'm using yams in place of russet potatoes. The sweet nutty flavor of the yam will pair nicely with a BROWN BUTTER SAGE SAUCE. The gnocchi is resting right now and drying out a little, the dough seemed a but wetter using the yam. Again, these light fluffy pillows of deliciousness are so simple to make, a little time consuming, but this recipe makes enough to freeze half!
Combine the flesh of 2 large yams, along with 1 cup AP flour, 1 tsp salt and 1 egg. Kneed dough for a few minutes, adding flour if its too sticky.
Cut dough into 8 pieces. Roll each piece out into finger size logs, then cut into 1" pieces.
Using the tine end of a fork, press down into one side of each gnocchi and set on baking sheet to rest. Dust with flour until ready to use.
Sauce recipe coming up soon!!
