Thermomix Sweet Potato Gnocchi
I have been making Gnocchi on and off for years but never really got them to be soft and pillowy. The Thermomix recipe in the Everyday cookbook is so simple to follow and it helped me make the best Gnocchi ever. (page 133) This is almost the same recipe except I substituted some sweet potato instead of regular and they turned out great too. If you don't have a gnocchi board you can use a fork. It helps create more surface area so that sauce will stick to the Gnocchi.
3 large Russet potato's peeled
1 large sweet potato peeled
300 g flour
1 tsp salt
pepper to taste
Peel and quarter potato's and cook in Varoma 25 minutes/Varoma/speed 1
Leave until cool or overnight.
Return potato's to bowl and chop 10 sec/ speed 4 until combined
(you might want to help this process along with your Thermomix spatula inserted through hole on top)
On generously floured surface, split into 8 portions and roll into logs. Add flour as needed.
Cut and fork ( or wooden gnocchi board) into individual pieces.
Boil in salted water until they float.
Scoop out and drain on cookie sheet. They can be frozen for use later as well.
Add your favourite sauce and your done.
