I must admit, it is not the quickest meal I've ever done (and believe me I normally always opt for quick, because I get hangry quite quickly), but it most certainly is not very complicated.


I actually found the process to be therapeutic almost...peeling the skin off of a roasted sweet potato, mixing the dough, flattening the dough...cutting and rolling the dough. I don't know, gimme some Billie Holiday singing in the background and I could sit there, cutting and molding little tasty gnocchi for hours. 





You need (serves 2 people):

  • 200g Sweet potato (roasted in the oven for about 40min 200° Celsius)

  • ½ TS Nutmeg

  • 100g Rice Flour

  • 40g Potato or Corn Starch

  • 1 TS Salt


For the cauliflower sauce:

  • Half a head of cauliflower

  • 100ml Cashew Milk

  • Salt to taste

  • ½ TS Nutmeg

  • 1 TBSP Nutritional Yeast


  1. Roast the sweet potato(s) at 200° Celsius for about 40min. I always slice it open a little bit, so I can peel the skin off better later on.

  2. Let it cool down for a bit, then peel it and mush it in a bowl.

  3. Add the nutmeg into the sweet potato mash.

  4. Combine all the dry ingredients together.

  5. Mix in your sweet potato mash. If the texture is too sticky add a little bit more rice flour.

  6. Sprinkle some extra rice flour on a big cutting board and flatten your gnocchi dough to a circle. Like that:

7. Bring water to a slight boil and put in 8-10 gnocchi. Let them boil until they float to the top. Get them out and put them on a big plate. Repeat until done. 

8. Put the boiled gnocchi in the fridge and prepare your delicious sauce of choice. I steamed half a head of cauliflower until soft, added my self made cashew milk, some salt, nutmeg and nutritional yeast, and blended it into a creamy cheesy sauce.

9. Get the gnocchi out of the fridge and fry them with some high quality olive oil in a pan for approximately 5-6min. I always like to add something green like kale to go along with it. Just pop it into the pan as well. 

10. Enjoy! :)
