Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Hey y'all! Happy Thursday!!

I made these gnocchi's for dinner tonight; they are SO delicious!! You won't be able to tell that they are gluten free and grain free!! The taste and texture is so perfect. The ricotta gives these gnocchi's a delicious cheesy taste!!

Not only do these gnocchi's taste amazing, they are super good for you as well!! Sweet potatoes are full of vitamin A, potassium, and vitamin C! These are super simple to make and only require five ingredients!!! 

Onto the recipe!!

Sweet Potato Gnocchi
  • 1.5 pounds sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed (about 2 cups mashed)
  • 1 cup ricotta 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup arrowroot flour (tapioca will work as well)
  • 1/4 cup wedo banana flour
  • pinch of salt
  • grass fed butter, to grease pan
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. 

Mix together mashed sweet potato, olive oil, and ricotta in large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together arrowroot flour, banana flour, and salt. Add dry ingredients to the mashed sweet potato mixture and mix until thoroughly combined. 

Dust counter and hands with arrowroot flour. Roll dough into a ball. Take about one tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball, then press a fork onto it to flatten it. Repeat until all dough is shaped and ready to boil!

Place about eight gnocchi's at a time in the boiling water. Boil for about 4 minutes. Drain in a colander. Repeat process until all gnocchi's are boiled. 

Heat grass fed butter in a large pan over medium high heat. Once hot, add gnocchi's and fry for about 3 minutes per side, or until golden and crispy. Repeat until all gnocchi's are fried.

Enjoy, these are seriously good!!
