Vegetable faff ๐Ÿ†

Good. Italian friend told me that his nanna would haunt me if I used egg, but I know some people do use it.

Only finely shredded to be tossed over gnocchi with griddled Mediterranean vegetables and then sauce on top.

Spuds baked cd ? I vote no egg.

Usually boiled with skins on first then whacked through the ricer on finest setting.

Okay so totally fucked up my gnocchi. Not enough flour.

Gnocchi is really hard to do right. My brother-in-law is Italian. His mother showed me how to make gnocchi. There is a knack to doing them properly. She reckons hers were ok, I reckon they were as good as Iโ€™ve ever had. Despite the expert coaching mine are usually laughably poorโ€ฆ

:disappointed:

in beef dripping.

They were light and fluffy but lost their shape. Iโ€™ve made better and have clues on how to improve.

I was pushing for as light and fluffy as I could get by using as little flour as possible and lightly working the dough, which worked at the expense of structure.

What Iโ€™d do next time - put the potatoes through the ricer another time; use a bit more flour, keep the working of the dough the same.

we use a drum sieve rather than the ricer

Rather partial to gnocchi baked in a spicy tomato n three cheese sauce until the top of the gnocchi are crispy whilst the bottoms remain soft and fluffy.

Also โ€˜Cheatsโ€™ gnocchi made without the spudโ€ฆI quite like the following Donna Hay recipe.

Hel prefers sautรฉed gnocchi for similar reasons of texture I suppose.

Sautรฉed off with some crispy pancetta n pecorino makes a tasty side dish
