Hot   Vegetarian   Vegan  Main Course  Dairy Free  Eggless  Italy  Europe

675g/1˝lb  Potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
150g/5oz Plain Whole Wheat Flour

˝ teasp Baking Powder
1 ˝ tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Black Pepper


1. Place the potato in a large saucepan of cold salted water, bring to the boil then cook for 20 minutes or until tender.

2. Drain the cooked potatoes well, return to the pan and mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth.

3. Add the remaining ingredients to the mashed potatoes and mix well to form a dough. Transfer to a lightly floured board and knead the dough until  smooth, dusting with extra flour if necessary to prevent sticking.

4.  Pull off pieces of the dough about the size of a cherry tomato, and roll into balls. Set each one aside on a floured surface whilst you finish the remainder.

5. Flatten the balls with the back of a fork, using the tines to create ridges then fold them in half, with the marks on the outside. The overall size should be approximately  2.5cm/1 inch in length but it's not too important, just make sure the sizes are ore or less even.

6. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, then keeping the water bubbling, add the gnocchi, and cook until they float to the top.  This only takes a 2-3 minutes depending on the size.

7. Drain well and serve with a Basil and Tomato sauce or another sauce of your choice.  

This will serve 6-8 as an accompaniment (acc)
