DIY Gnocchi

Prep Time: 1 hour (depending on how you cook your sweet potatoes!)
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 ¼ cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • Salt and pepper can be added to taste
  • Also make use of your favourite herbs for a bolder flavour


  1. Bake the potatoes for 1 hour at 200°C, or use any other method from boiling to microwaving to soften and mash the potatoes.
  2. In a medium size bowl combine the mashed potatoes with the egg and the flour. Mix until dough is formed.
  3. Shape the gnocchi into little pillowy shapes, about the size of your thumb. Use a fork to give the gnocchi a slight indentation. This will help them cook better.
  4. Once gnocchi are shaped, cook them in boiling water just as you would cook pasta – but in this case you’ll know they’re done when they float to the top
  5. Optional: Sauté for crispiness
  6. Serve with your favourite pasta sauce and freshly grated cheese.
