Basic Gnocchi
Recipe type: Pasta
  • 200g potatoes, boiled and passed through a ricer
  • 4 free-range egg yolks
  • 75g Italian '00' flour, plus extra for rolling
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 30g apple, finely grated
  • 2 tbs flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs oil
  1. Mix the potato, egg yolks, flour, salt, apple and parsley together in a bowl until it just forms a soft dough. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Divide the mixture in half and roll each piece on a lightly floured surface into a long sausage shape, about 1cm diameter. Using a sharp knife, cut each sausage into 2.5cm pieces of gnocchi. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Drop the gnocchi into the water and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until they float to the surface. Remove the gnocchi from the water with a slotted spoon and place onto a plate lined with kitchen paper.
  3. Heat a frying pan until hot, add the oil and the gnocchi and fry for 1-2 minutes until golden-brown and just crisp. Drain onto kitchen paper.
