If you want an alternative to potato gnocchi, sweet potato is the ideal vegetable substitute. Orange sweet potato has the perfect combination of being high in complex carbohydrates and starch with a high moisture content, which ultimately will result in light and fluffy gnocchi.
Even better news is that sweet potato is a good “starch”, full of fibre and micronutrients so there is no reason why you can’t eat these gnocchi by the bowl-full.

Sweet Potato is a versatile vegetable that can be showcased in sweet and savoury dishes.
Mashed sweet potato and flour are the only two ingredients required to make the dough.
Roll the dough into long thin rolls then cut into fork size pieces.
I used Nuttelex Lite which is a plant based butter.
The dough can be frozen if you find you have made excess gnocchi to your requirements.
