Sweet Potato Gnocchi with 3-Ingredient Herb Sauce

Gnocchi is quite fun to say, especially in a dramatic, albeit bad, Italian accent. And elaborate hand gestures really add to the experience. Or you could put those hands to better use, and actually make some gnocchi yourself. Sweet Potato Gnocchi that is with my 3-Ingredient Herb Sauce over the top.

Making gnocchi is probably even more fun than saying it, and afterwards you have yourself a lovely meal. Saying gnocchi in an insulting Italian accent still leaves you dinner-less.

Roll it, cut it, mark it with a G for gnocchi…

I already gave away how few ingredients are in the sauce, but what I didn’t tell you is that the gnocchi themselves have even fewer: only 2! Baked sweet potato + flour = gnocchi!

Pre-sauce gnocchi…

To make it even easier, here’s a video to show you step-by-step gnocchi creation:

The sweet potato can be sweet, or it can be savory. This recipe brings out it’s savory side with the help of my simple herb sauce. Veggie broth, cornstarch to thicken, and your choice of herbs turn these gnocchi into a savory meal. I used a mixed garlic and herb seasoning for maximum simplicity, but you can use any combination of herbs fresh from the ground or in a bottle already ground.

Post-sauce gnocchi…
