Cauliflower Gnocchi

June 10, 2019 0 Comments



Cauliflower Gnocchi Recipe

Real-food Instagram foodie accounts have been showcasing frozen, prefab cauliflower gnocchi a lot lately. We’ve watched our favorite recipe bloggers post shots and saucy stories about the myriad ways this pasta stand-in can miraculously rescue you from the enslavement of cravings. We don’t know about all that, but we do know that a homemade version of cauliflower gnocchi tastes fresher, crisps up far more easily than a frozen version, and is a lower-carb (compared to all-potato gnocchi) way to scratch a pasta itch.  

Cauliflower Gnocchi

Time: 75 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients

Cauliflower Gnocchi Recipe

  • 2 small russet potatoes
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 3 tablespoons cassava flour, plus more for dusting
  • ¾ teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 4 tablespoons Primal Kitchen Extra Virgin Avocado Oil
  • 6–7 fresh sage leaves
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest

Instructions

  • Peel and cut potatoes into 2-inch pieces. Place in a large bowl filled with water to remove excess starch. Allow to sit for 5–10 minutes before removing from water.
  • Remove the green exterior leaves from the cauliflower. Use a sharp knife to cut away the core of the cauliflower. Cut any large pieces of cauliflower into smaller florets. Steam cauliflower florets until tender, about 5–7 minutes.
  • Place cooked cauliflower into a food processor or high-speed blender and pulse until relatively smooth (no big unprocessed pieces left).
  • Place cauliflower in a large piece of cheesecloth or a clean kitchen towel, and squeeze out any excess moisture.
  • Boil potatoes until fork tender, about 15–17 minutes. Drain potatoes. Using a potato ricer or food mill, rice potatoes into a large bowl.
  • Add cauliflower, and mix until just combined. Add cassava flour, salt, and 2 tablespoons avocado oil. Mix until it comes together like a dough.

  • If the dough isn’t coming together, add a bit more cassava flour and a bit more avocado oil until it does.
  • Take care not to over-mix the dough. Working the dough too much will give the gnocchi a gummy texture.
  • Flour a clean surface with cassava flour, and place gnocchi dough in the center.
  • Using your hands, shape the dough into a ball, then start to flatten it out. Divide the dough into quarters. Roll each quarter into a long snake-like shape. Cut the dough into ½-inch pieces, and repeat until you’ve cut all of the gnocchi.

  • Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons avocado oil.
