HOMEMADE POTATO GNOCCHI


Print:
4

Ingredients

6 portion(s)

Gnocchi

  • 1kg Royal Blue potatoes, peeled and chopped into 2cm pieces
  • up to 300g Tipo 00 flour, start with 200g and use the rest if needed
  • 120g Parmesan cheese
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 litre water, for steaming

Recipe's preparation

  1. Steam your potatoes first by placing them into the Varoma dish and tray.

     

    Add water into TM bowl, place lid and varoma into position and steam for 30 minutes (or until you can pierce with a fork) on varoma temp, speed 3.

     

    Allow the potatoes to cool and press through a potato ricer into a large bowl.  Using a ricer means less handling of the potatoes, therefore producing soft and pillowy gnocchi.  Alternatively, you can mash the cooled potatoes in the TM bowl for 10 seconds on speed 4.  Be mindful not to over mash them as you don't want to overwork the potato mixture.  You can also mash by hand using a potato masher.

     

    If using a ricer, add the potatoes back into the TM bowl.

     

    Add 200g flour, parmesan and salt and knead for 30 seconds to obtain a soft and smooth mixture. 

     

    Place the dough onto a floured surface.  Work some more flour into the dough if needed to prevent the mixture from being too sticky. (Note that too much flour will make the gnocchi heavy).

     

    Divide the mixture into 4-5 portions, roll into a log about the width of a finger.  Cut into pieces about 2cm long.

     

    Cook immediately in small batches in a pot of boiling water.  Once they float to the top, leave for a minute and remove with a slotted spoon into the sauce you are using.

    The inspiration for this recipe came from a Nico Moretti pasta making class where we were shown how to make this by hand. I have changed certain steps to be able to prepare this easily in your Thermomix.

Tip

If not using straight away, immerse each batch into a bowl of cold water, drain and drizzle with a little oil to prevent them sticking.  The cooked gnocchi will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.  To reheat, simply place in a pot of boiling water until they float to the surface again.

 

Alternatively, you can freeze the gnocchi on a floured tray and once frozen place into a ziplock bag.

    Hi saxon,

    Tipo 00 flour is a higher protein flour that is commonly used in Italian recipes for pasta and pizza.  It's available at your local supermarket.  Hope this helps tmrc_emoticons.)

    Fabulous recipe!  I've used this recipe a couple of times; each time I get wonderful fluffy gnocchi. It's definitely the best gnocchi I've ever had, let alone made at home.
