Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Italian, Vegeterian
Serves: 3-4
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes / 600g cooked mashed potato
  • 90 g brown rice flour
  • 60 g tapioca starch (or potato starch)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 150 g shredded kale
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Chopped fresh sage plus extra leaves for garnish
  • Handful of walnuts
  • Ghee or olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat the oven 200 degrees. Wash and poke the sweet potatoes with a fork and bake until tender, about 45 min, 200 degrees.
  2. Cut them in half, scoop out the flesh and mash it in a bowl.
  3. Stir in the egg, oil, salt, pepper and nutmeg until combined. Mix in the flours, use a fork or knead with hands until a soft dough forms.
  4. Lightly flour your work surface and divide the dough into 4 portions. Take one portion and roll it into a rope on your work surface, until it is about 2 cm thick. Cut the dough into pieces. Do the same with the other portions.
  5. Using the back of a fork, press each gnocchi to form indentations. (optional)
  6. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the gnocchi until they all rise to the top, then drain.
  7. In the meanwhile warm up about one tablespoon of ghee (or olive oil) in a saucepan and cook the chopped kale about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  8. Melt an other spoon of ghee in the saucepan, add the garlic cloves sliced in two and chopped sage leaves.
  9. Toss the gnocchi in the saucepan and cook until they are crisp (I do it in two batches).
  10. Stir in the kale and serve with chopped walnuts.
