Potato and Ricotta Dumplings

Potato and Ricotta Dumplings

Posted 2018-08-08 by finyfollow

These were quite delicious, though I have to admit, they were "fiddly"! They are similar to gnocchi, except that they are filled.

They make a nice accompaniment to a meat meal, or could be eaten as a casual meal on their own.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 3

Ingredients
250 g potatoes, cleaned
1 small egg
Nutmet
About 50 - 75 g plain flour
80 g ricotta
Chives, chopped
Basil, chopped - optional

Method
  • Boil the potatoes in their skins until cooked through - about 25 minutes.

  • Drain and peel them while they are still hot.

  • Mash them thoroughly or push through a strainer, and add the egg while the potato is still hot.


  • Season with salt and pepper, and add the nutmeg.

  • Gradually add the flour until the dough is firm, and still light. It should not be "sticky", so add flour if it is.

  • Knead until it is smooth for about a minute.

  • Mix the ricotta with the basil and chives.

  • Roll out the dough onto a floured surface to a thickness of about 3 mm.

  • Using an upturned cup or similar, cut out circles -about 5 cms.


  • Put a teaspoon or a bit more of the ricotta into the middle of each circle of dough.

  • Cover with another circle and press the edges to seal.


  • Put some water in a pot, add some salt and bring to the boil.

  • Cook the dumplings a few at a time, until they float to the surface. This only takes about a minute.

  • Take them out of the water with a slotted spoon and serve. We had them with barbecued steak and onions.
