Beetroot Coconut Flour Gnocchi 

We used to assume that Gnocchi was always made with potatoes and since converting to a gluten free diet we were determined to find a way to make it without wheat. 

The great thing about making meals homemade is you actually have to learn about what you’re eating! Before we could make gnocchi however we had to learn exactly what it is! 

According to Wikipedia Gnocchi are: “various thick, soft dough dumplings that may be made from semolina,[1] ordinary wheat flour,[2]egg,[3] cheese,[4] potato,[5]breadcrumbs,[6] or similar ingredients” 

Wow, learn something new everyday! We had no idea you could even make gnocchi without potatoes. And so ladies and gentlemen we present to you a recipe for coconut flour gnocchi: 

Ingredients: 

  • 4 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 3 flax eggs (3 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and 9 tablespoons of water) 
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 2 teaspoons beetroot powder

Makes 15 gnocchi balls.

Add all dry ingredients to a mixing bowl…. 

 Add flax eggs and mix well until consistency feels like a sticky dough. 

A sticky, well combined PINK dough! 

Then roll mixture into approximately 1/2 inch balls and leave to chill in the fridge for at least an hour ( or more) We left them for 2 hours. 

    

   

Then heat a pan until it begins to boil. When the water is boiling add the little balls of gnocchi in. When they rise to the top (it’ll take about 2 minutes) catch them with a slotted spoon and set aside.

    Serve with salad…

   

And/or add your favourite sauce. We added a homemade blend of tomato and basil 👌🍅

Voila! A delicious nutritious lunch 😋
