Tried a WONDERFUL and EASY dish this weekend. Gnocchi are delicious
Italian potato "dumplings" and I found the recipe in the Washington Post
food section last week...this is from memory...
1.5 lbs russett potatoes
1.5 cups flour (semolina, but I used regular all-purpose)
1 egg-replacer egg
Bake the potatoes in the microwave or the old-fashioned way..till just a
bit soft. Peel the potatoes and mash with the egg mix. Add flour .5 cup
at a time and mix thoroughly. When you have a doughy substance (fairly
smooth and not too dry) tear off 1/3 of the dough and roll into a rope 1/2
inch thick. (oh, flour your hands and a flat surface or it will stick!)
Cut off 1 inch slices from the rope and put a dimple into the pieces.
Boil a large pot of water. Add the dumplings to the boiling water and let
cook for about 2 minutes...it's surprisingly fast....until they rise to
the surface. Top with any sauce you like, or none at all.....this is
about 4 servings. Delicious!
