- 1 egg yolk

Directions See How It's Made
- Place the spinach in a bowl and pour enough boiling water over it to cover. Once it has wilted, drain and leave to cool. Wrap a clean dishcloth around the spinach and, holding it over the sink, squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Chop fine.
- Combine the chopped spinach with parsley, garlic, ricotta, soy flour, egg and yolk, parmesan, and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper. Stir vigorously until thoroughly combined.
- Bring a large pan of water to a boil and salt it well. Form the dough into balls, about 2/3 the size of a golf ball. The gnocchi can be frozen at this stage if you are planning a future meal. Drop a few gnocchi at a time into the water, lower heat to simmer, and cook 3-4 minutes, until they have risen to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon. Keep these warm while you cook the rest.
- To make sage butter, melt butter in pan over medium heat. Add the salt and sage. Cook until sage is tinged with gold. Pour herb butter over cooked gnocchi and serve.
