Gnocchi are one of the most popular dishes and everybody knows for potato gnocchi. These little dumplings can be made also from sweet potatoes. They can be turned into many interesting dishes. They can be turned into simple lunch or dinner everybody will adore. We like to cook them then toss into butter melted on the frying pan with some oregano.
First step for making sweet potato gnocchi is to prepare sweet potato mash. The easiest way to do this it to bake sweet potatoes in the oven. This way you don't have to peel and cut sweet potatoes. Just prick several times each sweet potato with a fork then place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Baking time vary depending on the size of sweet potatoes, but mostly it is between 45 minutes and 1 hour. Once you can insert easily fork in the sweet potato, it's ready. If the sweet potatoes are really big, you can half them to bake faster.
Once they are tender and skin is wrinkle, take them from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes until you can handle with them. Carefully peel off the skin and place sweet potato flash into a bowl. Mash it with potato masher or with a fork until you get a smooth mash.
Place sweet potato mash in a bowl, add Greek yogurt and some salt. Add flour gradually kneading very gently after each addition. Be sure not to over knead the dough as gnocchi will be tough. As the dough becomes easier to handle, transfer it to a floured work surface. Take 1/3 or dough and roll into a rope-like shape. Cut the rope into slices of 2.5cm. Repeat this with the rest of the dough.

Bring a large pot of water to boil, add gnocchi and boil until the gnocchi rise to the top. Drain them using a slotted spoon and place in glass bowl. Toss gently with some olive oil to prevent sticking. From now on you can continue preparing gnocchi as you wish.
Sweet potato gnocchi can be stored in the fridge for 3 days or freezed for a few weeks.
Arrange gnocchi on baking tray in one layer and place tray in the freezer. Once they are frozen transfer them to a freezer bag. Once you want to cook them, just throw them directly into boiling water without thawing.
