Sweet Potato Gnocchi

“You can serve them with Burnt butter saige sauce, Italian Tomato Sauce, Basil Pesto Sauce or Three Cheese Sauce. All of which are perfectly delicious in their own way.”

– Fabio Lauro

 

RECIPE FROM LAURO MOBILE PIZZA, & FINE FOOD DELI

Ingredients:

1kg Sweet Potatoes

250g – 300g Flour

Pinch of Salt

Pinch of Nutmeg

Method:

Pre boil Potatoes in their skins in salted water till knife goes to the middle, then dry out in a hot oven for 10-15 minutes and then peel & mash the potatoes.

Flour a solid work surface, and bit by bit incorporate the potatoes with the flour, nutmeg & salt. The less flour you use, the softer the gnocchi will be.

Roll the potato “dough” into sausages, then cut into digit sized gnocchi which you can mark with the back of a fork to get in the ridge shape.

In the meantime, boil a pot of salted water, place the gnocchi in the boiling water.

When they rise to the top, just give them 30 seconds or so more, then lift them out with a slotted spoon and put them directly into your deliciously prepared sauce, stir gently, dust with parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

Voorverhit oond tot 180C. Room botter en suiker tot lig. Voeg die eiers een op ‘n slag by en meng goed na elke byvoeging. Roer die patat en stroop

SPICY PEAR AND SWEET POTATO CAKE

“When the cakes are cool, spread a thin layer of caramel on one, and then spread a generous amount of cream cheese icing on that before sandwiching together.

BUTTERNUT & SWEET POTATO SOUP

“Saute the onions in butter until soft. Then add the butternut, sweet potato and curry powder, sweat for about 1 minute. Add the Veggie stock and the milk.”

LAMB RUMP WITH LEMON RUB

“I would pair our Lamb rump with our Jean Daneel Signature Red Blend, its smooth oaky flavours complements the hearty flavours that come with lamb and the tannin in the red helps break down the fattiness from the dish.”

OXTAIL STEW WITH SWEET POTATO

“Based on a peasant Spanish-style oxtail recipe we use a white wine rather than the traditional red wine associated with oxtail, so that the rich oxtail and chocolate flavours are not overpowered.”

SWEET POTATO PEPPERONATA

“Enjoy with a freshly baked Ciabatta Bread (JD Bistro makes a fantastic one!) and a glass of Chilled Lomond Cape Agulhas Rose, it brings out the creaminess of the sweet potato & the peppery notes of the dish.”
