Gluten Free Potato Gnocchi Recipe

catering fort lauderdale

These little dumpling “pillows” can be made with a variety of ingredients. Originally they were made with flour/egg mixture. The potato version many of us are familiar with came about after potatoes were introduced from the New World in the 1600's. This recipe was learned while I was wandering around the Veneto. It is always served as a first course or “primo”

Serves 4

1pound/450g Russet Potatoes
¼ cup /38g purpose flour (we used Bob’s Red Mill GF AP mix)
½ teaspoon/2ml salt
¼ teaspoon/1ml pepper
1 large egg lightly beaten

Place the whole unpeeled potatoes in a large pot and cover with water (you can roast in a 400F/200C oven for 45 minutes or easily pierced).  Salt the water generously and boil until “fork tender” (about 45 minutes). Remove potatoes from water and let cool enough to handle.*  

Remove the skin and pass the potatoes through a food mill or ricer.  If you do not have either of these simply mash them.** Mix in the beaten egg and add flour, salt and pepper.  Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and need for 3 minutes. Cut the dough into 4 equal pieces and roll out to 1/4 inch/6.35ml logs.  Cut the logs into 1 inch/2.5cm pieces and roll of the back of a fork.

Cook in salted boiling water until the pieces float to the top (4-5 minutes).

Serve with your favorite sauce.

*Potatoes need to be warm to incorporate the ingredients.

**Do not use a food processor as it will turn the mixture into glue.

Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain. The leafy stalk of the plant produces ears, which contain the grains known as kernels. For every kernel on the cob, there is a strand of silk. The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also. The white and yellow hybrids are known as butter and sugar corn which contain both kinds of kernels. This cereal is known for its pleasant taste and its versatility.

Although it may seem a little  dull  at first glance (especially on its dull side), aluminum foil has quite a fascinating story behind it. Many incredible things occurred before it became a staple in the modern kitchen. In this post, I'll discuss the various events that led to the aluminum foil revolution, and highlight the continued importance of this seemingly mundane material in our lives.  Aluminum Foil What Is Aluminum Foil?
