Pride gnocchi recipe from Fable Diner

Serves 5

5 large Russet potatoes
1 Egg
1 Tsp Salt
1/2 cup Flour

Bake potatoes for 1 hour at 375 degrees F
While potatoes are still warm, cut in half and press pulp through a screen. Line them on a baking sheet and leave overnight uncovered in the fridge to dry out and cool.

Put pulp through a potato ricer.
Add in eggs and salt
Add flour and mix until everything comes together as a dough.
Roll into 3/4″ snake(s) and cut into 1″ long pieces

Boil in water for 3 minutes – water at a rolling boil
Cool in an ice bath, sear in a pan with olive oil

Serve over a veggie puree (we use tomato puree). Add sauteed veggies (at Fable Diner, currently sliced zucchini, cherry tomatoes, English peas and mushrooms). Top with parm crumble (panko crumbs, butter and parmesan)
