    *(My all purpose flour already contains all the ingredients you need for flour in this recipe, including xanthan gum.  You can make my flour yourself by following the recipe in my cookbook, Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating, or found in various publications like the Washington Post, linked from my Web site.  You can also buy the flour pre-made from my Web site..  If you use another flour, be sure it includes xanthan gum and is not a rice-based flour, or the results will be crumbly and gritty).

    Gluten-Free GnocchiSauce Ingredients:
    10 oz. fresh mushrooms, chopped
    1 ¼ cup peas
    2 cups cream or soy creamer
    2 Tbs. Extra virgin olive oil
    1 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme
    1 Tbs. chopped fresh chives
    sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

    Directions:
    To make the gnocchi, boil or microwave the washed potatoes (if microwaving, pierce potatoes with a fork in several places) until tender – approximately 20 minutes for boiling, 8 minutes for microwaving, depending on the power of your microwave. Set aside to cool until you can hold them to peel.

    Once cooled, place peeled potatoes in a large bowl and mash with a potato masher until there are no remaining lumps. Shake ¼ cup flour over top of the potatoes, along with the salt. Squish together with your hands until incorporated with the potatoes. Repeat by the ¼ cup full, incorporating until the full cup is added.

    Form the potato mixture into a mound and make a well in the center. Pour the oil and beaten egg into the well and knead together until fully incorporated into the potato/flour mixture. It should no longer be wet, but will hold together if you squeeze a handful together. If it is too wet, add more flour by the tablespoon; if it is too dry, add a touch of milk (dairy or non-dairy).

    Flour a clean surface or baking mat with Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour. Pat the potato mixture out to approximately ½ inch thickness and cut into strips approximately ½ inch wide. Cut each strip into ½ inch pieces. Take each piece and round the edges with the tines of a fork, to form tubular pieces like miniature barrels. Place each piece of formed gnocchi onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and when finished forming the pasta pieces, cover with a cloth and refrigerate until ready to boil.

    Bring a 6 quart pot of water to boil in preparation for the gnocchi. In a separate saucepan, heat the oil for the sauce over medium heat. Add the chopped mushrooms and sautée until lightly browned. Add the peas, cream and thyme. Raise the temperature to medium-high and cook while stirring until the cream reduces by half. Season the sauce with salt and pepper, then remove from the heat.

    Meanwhile, place the gnocchi individually into the boiling water, boiling only enough to cover the bottom of the pot. The gnocchi are done when the float to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon and serve with the sauce. Garnish with chives.


    Serves 4.

    This sounds really good, actually.

    Sometimes the whole gluten free thing is tough, considering so often the food doesn't taste all that great.

     

    I'm hoping this recipe is the same way! Thanks, Jules, for posting this!

    I haven't tried the recipe yet, but for the sake of dairy-free people I want to mention that unsweetened hemp milk makes a wonderful cream sauce without that overpowering taste of soy milk that tends to ruin savory dishes. Salud!

    Just made these little guys for use in a broth soup tonight. Excellent, easy. I used my food processor to mash the potatoes and mix the flour/salt. Worked great.

    Risotto is a classic Italian starter open to endless variation. Whether you go sweet or savory, a creamy base is a must. Stick with Arborio rice if possible, though most short or medium grain varieties will do in a pinch. The key is not to over-stir as you add the broth—trust the rice! In this recipe, a great balance is born between the salty cheese and zesty, fresh mint.
    Ingredients:
    1½ cups Arborio rice
    1 cup frozen peas, thawed
