Sweet Potato Pesto Gnocchi
Author: Bridee Date Posted:13 November 2018
1 cup mashed sweet potato
Dash mixed herbs
1 clove garlic - crushed
Handful fresh spinach
To make the gnocchi, combine the sweet potato, seasonings and flour and mix until well combined and you’re left with a dough mixture.
Spread a little flour onto a cutting board and roll out the dough to form a long sausage shape. Cut into small thumb sized pieces.
To create the rolled effect, press each piece of gnocchi against a fork and roll towards you.
Fill a saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Add in the gnocchi and allow to cook until they start to float to the surface, then scoop them out with a slotted spoon and place onto a side plate.
Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and add in the gnocchi and crushed garlic. Sauté so that they start to lightly crisp and then stir through the spinach and a few spoonfuls of the pesto.
Once the spinach has wilted, serve onto plates and enjoy!
