Italian gnocchi are among the most popular dishes in the world. These little dumplings made from the combinatio of potatoes, flour and egg are ideal quick meal. Once made, gnocchi only take a few minutes to cook and you can serve them in a variety of ways.
This recipe brings you a twist on regular gnocchi, as this recipe use whole grain spelt flour which makes these gnocchi super delicious and healthy. Spelt flour with its dark flecks gives gnocchi rustic appearance and slightly nutty taste.
One of the best ways to server these gnocchi is just to toss them in a butter on a frying pan until golden or pair with a simple tomato sauce.
The base of gnocchi are potatoes which should be cooked whole in a large pot of water. Take medium-sized potatoes, so they cook evenly and quickly. Once you can insert the fork in potatoes, they are cooked. Take them from the water and leave to cool for a few minutes, then peel of the skin using a small knife.
To make the dough, mash the potatoes then place on dusted work surface. Sprinkle with flour and salt then add an egg and knead gently a soft dough. Don't add too much flour to the dough, otherwise the dough will be too heavy and gnocchi will be tough.
Cut small amounts of dough, form a long rope and cut into 2cm pieces then slice each piece on a fork. Place gnocchi on the tray lines with baking paper and floured, so they don't stick.
Gnocchi are cooked in a large pot of salted water. Once the water start to boils, using a slotted spoon drop 5 - 6 gnocchi in the water. When they are cooked they will come to the surface. Drain them and place in one bowl. Serve with desired sauce immediately.
