Gnocchi are delightful comfort food and not hard to make. Serve tossed with garlic butter, basil pesto or whatever you fancy.


Makes: 72 gnocchi approximately

  • 700g floury potatoes
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

  1. Boil unpeeled potatoes until tender, about 25-35 minutes. Test with a fork. Drain. When cool enough to handle, peel and press through a potato ricer, or use a potato masher. Spread onto a baking tray and let cool.
  2. Work potatoes with salt, egg, flour and nutmeg to form a dough. Form into two rolls about 1cm in diameter. Cut each roll into 3cm pieces. Form each piece into oval gnocchi and press gently with the prongs of a fork.
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Reduce the heat so the water is just simmering. Cook gnocchi in simmering water until they float. Remove and drain well.
