Recipe of the Month: Gluten-free Sweet Potato Gnocchi

sweet potato gnocchi

Hard to pronounce but delicious and fun to make!  Only 2 ingredients but limitless possibilities to dress them up.


  • 1-2 sweet potatoes
  • Rice flour


Peel and dice potatoes and boil until tender.  Drain very well and mash.  Measure your mashed sweet potato and add an equal amount of rice flour, mix thoroughly.  You may need to add extra flour to get a thick dough.

On a floured surface roll a piece of dough into a long rope and cut into 1 inch segments.  In small batches drop gnocchi into a pot of boiling water and keep an eye on them.  When they float, remove with a slotted spoon.

Once they’ve all been boiled, combine with your favourite ingredients to make a great meal.  Consider tomato sauce or pesto.  Don’t forget to add protein (meat or beans) and vegetables!

In my batch this week I added chicken, bacon, asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, onions, garlic, pine-nuts, fresh basil and lots of olive oil.
