Pumkin Gnocchi

This is the easiest recipe EVER! I was so excited that it turned out. I had received a pumpkin in my veggie box and didn’t want it to rot. I have made gnocci with sweet potato before and figured this couldn’t be much different. I decided to do marinara and meatballs to go with it, I would also recommend a brown butter sauce.

What you will need:

1 small-medium size pumpkin (3/4 cup of puree makes two servings)

3/4 cup of flour (I used brown rice flour)

1 egg


Step 1

Set the oven to 400 degrees. Cut your pumpkin in half and scoop out the interior. I recommend keeping the seeds and giving them a good roast, they are delicious! Cover the interior with 1tsp of oil and place face down on a baking sheet. Bake for 30-45 min or until the interior is soft.


Step 2

Scoop out the cooked pumpkin leaving behind the pumpkin shell. You can puree the interior if you like, but I just mashed it with a fork.


Step 3

Add in the flour and the egg and mix until you have a smooth dough. I added a little extra flour as I went, the dough is very sticky.


Step 4

Create a ball of dough in your hands and roll out on a floured surface. Use your hands, not a rolling pin. Then cut into bite size cubes.


Step 5

Press lightly with a fork to get your typical gnocchi look! Bring a pot of water to a boil and place gnocchi in the pot. It only takes a few minutes to reach the desired texture. I boiled the gnocchi for 5 minutes.


Step 6

Add desired sauce and protein! I also added fresh basil, it paired nicely with the pumpkin flavor! ENJOY!
