Beet Gnocchi by Tasty

This Beet Gnocchi from @buzzfeedtasty + wine at home is my kind of date night! The husband and I have been trying not to eat out as much, so we’re getting creative with our meals. We are creatures of habit and often have similar dinners throughout the week, but sometimes it’s nice to do something fancy. This gnocchi involves only 8 simple ingredients and the finished product is delectable. It does take some time to complete (I’m talking 2-3 hours) but, it’s perfect if you’re looking for an at home activity! Pour a glass of wine, turn on some music, and get cookin’.🍷

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 1 medium beet, greens trimmed

  • 1 large russet potato

  • 1 large egg

  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for boiling

  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour, plus more for dusting

  • ½ cup salted butter, 1/2 stick, divided

  • 2 tablespoons fresh sage, chopped, divided

Some things to consider:

*You can definitely taste the beet in this gnocchi… so if you don’t like beets, you won’t like this.

*The dough is kind of sticky and hard to work with… just keep adding flour until it’s manageable!

*This gnocchi is definitely decadent, but at the same time healthier than your usual gnocchi you order at a restaurant, so it’s not going to taste as rich.

*I haven’t tried using gluten free flour… but if you are sensitive to gluten you could try it, and let me know how it works out!

*I would recommend using a paper towel or gloves when dealing with the beet so your hands don’t turn red!

*Start cooking early! This takes 2.5-3 hours!

*I paired this gnocchi with a bottle of rosé :)
