Leftover potato = Gnocchi
This recipe is a great way to use up leftover potato or old potatoes that you have hanging around your home. It's surprisingly easy to make and really tasty.
1kg potato gnocchi (suggest floury ones such as King Edward)
100g plain flour
2 egg yolks
50g grated parmesan
Handful chopped parsley
1 clove of garlic pasted
. Bake the potatoes in an oven at 170 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until cooked through
. Cut in half and scrape out the potato from inside, then using a fork or a potato masher mash the potato so lump free.
. Add all the other ingredients to a bowl with the mash and mix together
. Knead the dough slightly until together for around 10-30 seconds
. Cut into smaller pieces and roll into long sausage shapes as in the picture.
. Lightly dust with flour and cut into 2cm pieces
. Cook the gnocchi in simmering water with a pinch of salt and a dash of olive oil in. Once the gnocchi floats to the surface the gnocchi is ready to take out.
. This gnocchi is great just served with a drizzle of olive oil and a little grated Parmesan.
