TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
Place water in mixing bowl, add sweet potatoes to simmering basket and place in TMX bowl with lid on. Steam 20mins/varoma/speed 2 or until soft.
Remove potatoes and allow to drain and cool to room temp (or put in fridge for 20 mins)
Place sweet potatoes in mixing bowl and add egg, salt to taste and herbs if using. mash 10 sec/speed 3
With blades spinning at speed 2, add flours through lid 1 tbsp at a time until the dough comes together. It must still be soft but malleable and dry to touch (slightly sticky- see photo)
Scoop 1/6 of the mixture onto a lightly floured surface and roll into 25cm snake, about 2cm thick. Cut snake into 2.5cm pieces then shape by rolling each piece over the prongs of a fork (this is the same preparation method as the gnocchi recipe uses in the Basic Cookbook). Set aside on lightly floured surface.
Drop gnocchi into pot of salted boiling water and cook until they all bounce back to the surface (approx 45 seconds) Serve immediately with sauce stirred though
(optional* depending on what sauce you make, if a subtler sauce like sage butter, add lots of herbs- sage, thyme, rosemary etc. I add dried Italian herbs if doing a bolognese sauce. Leave seasoning out if sauce has a strong flavour like pesto)
This is delicious with bolognese sauce or basil and spinach pesto. Great for kids too!
store any unsed raw mixture in the fridge, rolled into a thick sausage and wrapped in cling wrap for up to 2 days.
