Lia’s gnocchi


I wish I had time to join you earlier!!! Anyway, this is my first recipe for you all, hopefully you’ll enjoy it! Cheers!

All I know about making “pasta” comes from my mother, she’s called Lia. Those gnocchi are made exactly as she teached me when I was a child and she was preparing her own “home-made food”, each and every Sunday… More of these recipes coming soon!


potatoes 500 gr

flour 140 gr


Put the potatoes  (better if old ones)  entire and with their peel on in a pot and cover with cold water. Boil them until they’re completely cooked and tender (try to experience it with a fork). Strain the potatoes and drench them with cold water, in order to facilitate the peeling without burning your fingers! 😉

After peeling the potatoes crush them (using the proper tool) in a big bowl and let them get cool at room temperature. Add very little flour (depending on the degreey of humidity), I used about 140 gr and it was enough!

Knead well until flour and potatoes are completely mixed. DON’T ADD SALT while kneading, nor during the potatoes’ boiling!!! It’s no use!!!

Bring little parts of the mixture and form a sort of  rolls, then cut small pieces, round them a little bit with the fingers and in the end pass the pieces on the proper tool for striping (if you don’t have it, just use a powdered fork).

That’s it! Cook the gnocchi in plentiful salted water, added with a fine stream of  oil, and strain them as soon as they emerge. Dress them as you like!

Thoese are dressed with tomato-sauce made with browned onions, thyme and basil, plus a coffe-spoon of chilli-cream.

and those with 2 table-spoons of vegan pesto, mixed with a glass of soya milk and a ladleful of gnocchi’s cooking water.

Both of the versions are delicious!
