Potato Gnocchi

Potato and pasta goodness, all rolled into one pillowy bite. Try this #easytomake #gnocchi recipe with garlic butter and loads of black pepper to fight your weekday blues. 30 minutes and dinner is sorted! A fun way to use #leftover potatoes and involve the kids in #cooking.


To make 2 servings

  1. Potato, boiled : 1 medium

  2. Egg, whisked: 1 large

  3. AP flour: 3/4th cup

  4. Garlic

  5. Butter

  6. Salt and black pepper

  7. Italian Parsley, for garnish

  8. Parmesan, for garnish


  1. Peel and grate the potato. Using a masher will do but using a grater will get fluffier gnocchi.

  2. Whisk an egg and add into the potatoes. If you are using freshly boiled potatoes, make sure they are cool first or the egg will scramble.

  3. Add in the flour and salt and knead into a non-sticky dough. No water is needed. You can sprinkle more flour to bring it together if your potatoes are wetter.

  4. When it comes together, divide the dough into smaller parts and shape it as you like. To learn how to make the quintessential gnocchi shape, please watch the video since its hard to put into words. Or else, just shape it however 😊

  5. In a pot boil some salted water. When the water is ready, drop the gnocchi but don’t overcrowd. They are done when they pop to the surface.

  6. You can use any type of sauce with it, like tomato sauce, or you could heat some butter in a pan, add chopped garlic and saute these until they are golden on the outside.

  7. Sprinkle parm and Italian parsley and devour! Happy eating. 😊

Note: The recipe can be easily scaled by number of potatoes. So, if you want to use 3 medium potatoes, just multiply everything else, eggs and flour mainly, by 3.
