Sweet Potato and Feta Gnocchi

Recipe by Marlitt
READY IN: 30mins




  • In a microwave safe dish put sweet potato and add a little water. Cook on high until potato is soft about 10 minutes ( depends on size of potato and your microwave).
  • Finely dice onion and sauté over medium heat until it just starts to brown.
  • In a large pot bring 2 quarts of water to boil .
  • When potato is ready let cool slightly, (until cool enough to handle ) spoon the flesh into a bowl.
  • Add salt and pepper and mash.
  • Fold in feta, onion and egg and mix well.
  • Add 1 12 cups flour to the mixture until incorporated. This makes a very soft dough.
  • Pour about a ½ cup of flour on a plate or a clean dry surface. I used a teaspoon to take the dough out of the bowl and then dredge the dough in the flour.
  • Shake off the excess flour and place on a clean tea towel.
  • Repeat until the dough is finished.
  • Add about 12 pieces at a time to the boiling water.
  • When gnocchi floats to the top cook another 3 minutes then remove with a slotted spoon to a colander.
  • Repeat until all the gnocchi are cooked.
  • You can now brown these in an herb butter or just top with your favourite sauce.
  • Enjoy.
