You can compliment this dish with the vegan almond milk pancakes or with the ever tasty sugar cookies. Let’s have a look at the recipe now for a better idea on this tasty recipe.
Start with the Potatoes – Peel, Cook, cool and cut the potatoes into little pieces (medium sized – the sized of gnocchi you would like to have)
Now, mash these potatoes section by section (some people mash and then form section while some do no mash instead, they just press them a little using hands)
Then, take a large bowl wherein you will be adding the mashed or pressed potatoes along with salt, olive oil and flour
Now, using your hands, gently mix all the ingredients and squeeze them so all the ingredients are mixed well and you get a no lump kneaded ball (if the kneaded mixture looks little sticky, then add a little more of flour to get a soft and smoothly kneaded dough)
Then cover the dough with a soft dry cloth for a few minutes. This is done as the dough might otherwise get dry
Now, take smaller sections of the dough at a time, around 1 Tsp per piece, squeeze it between your hands and give it the shape of gnocchi (the way you love it the most)
For the traditional style gnocchi, you can press each piece of the dough with a fork – do press the fork over the gnocchi balls using your thumb. If at this point too, the dough I sticky then add some flour to it
Now, take a large bowl and half fill it salted water that has been brought to boil, then put the gnocchi one by one in the salt water and let it cook for around 5 minutes
Once the Gnocchi starts to float high over the water, the gnocchi are cooked
