Let's start with...
Gluten Free Kumara and Beetroot Gnochi with Dairy Free Sunflower Seed and Lemon Basil Pesto
1 large kumara
2 large beetroot
1 egg (optional)
11/2 cups brown rice flour
Roast the kumara whole, prick holes in the skin with a fork first. Chop beets into large chunks and roast with kumara until the kumara is soft.
Scoop out the soft kumara from the skin and blend with beets in a food processor until smooth. Add the egg if using, and the brown rice flour, a large pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper, process until smooth, still sticky but not too much.
Roll small amounts on a floured surface into long 1-2 cm thick rolls, chop into 2cm chunks.
Drop gnocchi into a big pot of boiling water, when they rise to the surface they are done.
Sunflower Seed and Lemon Basil Pesto
1/2 cup sunflower seeds soaked
bunch basil or other herbs/greens
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
Process all ingredients in a food processor until desired consistency.
We ate our gnocchi on a bed of rocket and greens, smothered in pesto and drizzled with olive oil and fresh ground black pepper.
