Holy mackerel, Batman! I am beat…This is by far the hardest I’ve ever worked on a flour made food…O_o…Probably the last time I make them, heh.
I’ve been getting more of a taste of rhubarb in savory dishes (Me thinks my taste buds have bought the farm, ). Anyhoo, some home grown zucchini, parsley, basil, white wine, butter, onion, and garlic.
All in all, they’re pretty darn good…And definitely different. Soft and yet still has a chew, but not as chewy/solid as an egg dumpling. Man, if it wasn’t such a pain to make, I wouldn’t mind making these more often, but no…NONO…nooooooOOOOOOOOOooooooooo! No way, Jose! Nuh uh! Nah!
How the gnocchi was made…Pretty much just boiled potatoes, then cooled, skinned, and mashed, then a little salt added, and enough flour to make a non-tacky dough. Note: A standing mixer is relatively useless… So expect to knead a lot by hand…Oh my word, I’m so sore….
Ooo, yum! Nothing beats fresh, homemade gnocchi!
Looks very tasty! And so cool that you didn’t just make the gnocci but grew the zuc, too!
I hate to say it…I mean, I really really hate to say it…But I may want to try to make these again at a later date. I’ve got a lot of excess so I’ve been searching for recipes, and I have been finding soooooo many different kinds of gnocchi…Apple, pumpkin, sweet potato. Oh holy halibuts, I can think of a lot of different things to try…However…HOWEVER…If, and that’s a might big if, I do this again, I will NOT be doing it by hand. I’ll make an extremely small batch in my noodle machine. It can do up to 1+1/2 cups of flour, and even if I have to stop the machine, take some out, add flour, rinse and repeat…I will NOT knead the dough by hand, . I am not going through that pain again, HAH!
Anyway, I really want to try plum gnocchi. If it worked in the mock shortbread cookies, how’d it do as a doodle? (Dumpling nOODLE). So many options…So little time/patience/strength/will…
Hmm! Replace the flour with rice flour, or coconut flour, and bananas for the liquid/starch.
Hmm! I wonder, use flour and peach, apricots, plums, blueberries, or any kind of fruit/berry like those, and add the doodles to baked beans.
STOP IT…I can’t do all of this, and my stomach wouldn’t like a lot of it…So just STOP IT…Focus on other things…You can play around with these yummies later. Besides, I’ve got a lot of potato gnocchi in the freezer that I need to use up first…Grrrr!
Amazing! I’ve made sweet potato gnocchi…once, lol. It is definitely a lot of work!! Yours looks fantastic!
