Pillowy gnocchi with sweet potato and whole wheat flour is really easy to make!



1 Sweet Potato

1 egg

1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbsp roasted walnut oil for sautéing 


Preheat oven to 350°

Place potato directly on rack in oven

Bake 1 hour, allow to cool and remove skin

In a mixer or by hand, combine potato, flour, salt, and egg until a dough forms

Knead dough for 3-5 minutes or until smooth and elastic

Divide into four sections, roll each section into a long rope (about 14 inches)

Cut the rope every 1 inch

Working in four batches, heat oil in a skillet, saute about 5-8 minutes shaking the skillet or stirring to get even cooking on all sides 

Slowly pour in 2 Tbsp hot water to steam the gnocchi (see notes)



Be careful when pouring water into a skillet of hot oil.  Be sure that there are no pools of oil, it could splatter hot oil on you.  Pour the water very slowly and shake the pan gently.
