Gnochi (Potato Dumplings)

What you need: 

2 pounds large baking potatoes
1 cup all purpose flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
sauce, to serve

What you do: 

1 Steam the potatoes in their skins until tender. When they are cool enough (but still warm) to handle, peel and run them through a ricer or mash with a potato masher until free of lumps. Do not use a food processor because it tends to make the potatoes gluey. Do not use an electric mixer because it adds too much air.
2. Immediately add the flour and salt. Knead on a lightly floured board until smooth. Sprinkle on a little more flour if the dough sticks.
3. Form into ropes about the thickness of your thumb. Cut into 3/4" sections and press down lightly with a fork. Although not essential, I like to press them against a grater to give it a ridged appearance for presentation.
4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the gnocchi and boil until they rise to the top, about 5 minutes. Do not crowd the dumplings. Drain and place in a bowl. Mix the gnocchi with enough sauce to thoroughly coat them.'

I hunted for housing information, and I came across a real estate news Internet site, OC Housing News. While reviewing this website, I happened upon this informative home ownership guide, Guide to Cost of House Ownership. The housing analysis and real estate news reporting on this website is excellent, the cartoons are hilarious, and the real estate educational materials are fantastic. I suggest visiting this Internet site to experience it.

I had to use quite a bit more flour than the recipe recommended, but I really appreciated having a place to start since I had no idea how to make gnocchi.  Who knew it was just mashed potatoes and flour?! Once I got the ratio down (no idea how much flour I ended up adding, but the dough felt a lot firmer than when I started out), the finished gnocchi looked and tasted great! I'd love to experiment with adding spinach, garlic, arugula, etc.  Thanks!

I made this tonight for Thanksgiving dinner. I had purple potato's from the farmers market I went to a couple of weeks ago, so I just used those. I used more then 1 cup of whole wheat flour though. I kept mixing in a quarter of a cup at a time, I used my hands at first to knead the dough. I switched to my Kitchen Aid mixer & used the hook to mix it all the way. I kept adding flour until the dough wasn't so sticky. I rolled it out into thin logs, & then cut pieces & then rolled them across a a fork to make the gnocchi design. I put them in a pan with some Earth Balance & olive oil, thyme, garlic powder, lemon rhine & lemon juice. I added a little water & corn starch to make a "creamy" sauce.
It was good, even my dogs loved it.
I have a bunch left over because it made a lot, it could probably serve about 6 people. I'm going to freeze the left overs.
Yum    :>
