Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Sauteed Spinach


  • Microwave sweet potato for 15 minutes. Allow it to cool. Then Scoop out the flesh and mash with a fork until its completly smooth. Meanwhile boil a pot of salted water.
  • To make the dough add a tiny bit of flour at a time and work the dough. When it's no longer sticky, turn it out onto a floured surface. Work the dough until it's smooth. Try not to work it too much!
  • With a knife divide the dough into four quadrents. Roll out each quadrent into logs about 1 inch in diameter. Slice the log into little 1 by 1 inch pieces.
  • Drop the gnocchi into the boiling water. They will automatically sink to the bottom. When they rise up to the top they are ready. Remove them wiht a slotted spoon.

Saute the spinach

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add spinach and lemon juice. Rotate with tongs until the spinach is wilted. Add the gnocchi and saute for 4 minutes and serve.
