Soil to Snack~ Welcome East Port Orchard and Allen Creek!

 Potato Gnocchi!

Gnocchi is a delicious potato pasta dumpling, or also known as a "potato pillow of love". To add some color to your gnocchi, you can use purple, blue (yes, there are purple and blue potatoes!) or red cool!

2 Cups potatoes (boiled or roasted)  
2 Cups flour 
1 teaspoon both salt and pepper
1 egg

Mix the ingredients above into a ball of dough, dusting with flour so as not to stick to the table. Take a piece of the dough and roll it into a finger-width log. Cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Dip a fork in flour and roll the fork over each piece of gnocchi, gently making an impression. Make gnocchi out of all the dough.

Drop the gnocchi into boiling water (with oil) in small batches. As they arrive at the top of the water, scoop them out using a slotted spoon. Allow to cool on an oiled pan. 

Saute some veggies in olive oil and add in the gnocchi to warm them up. Or serve with your favorite tomato or pesto sauce. Yum!!
