Recipe: Sweet Potato Butternut Squash Gnocchi

IMG_7313

Homemade gnocchi on a weeknight? Yep, and we’ve got Olympic steeplechaser Emma Coburn to thank for it.

I spotted the recipe on her Instagram Stories; not only is it simple to make, but it’s also got a subtle sweet flavor that makes these little pillows of dough just delicious.

Not too shabby for something she whipped up using a combination of recipes and ingredients already in her fridge, as she told me via Twitter.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cup sweet potato, roasted & blended
  • 1.5 cup butternut squash, roasted & blended

  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 4 cups flour
  • Pancetta
  • Parmesan cheese (freshly grated)

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Using flour to coat hands, roll into ropes & cut.
  3. Boil for 5 minutes in small batches.
  4. Toss with pancetta, top with Parmesan & serve.

Bonus: It’s excellent fuel for this week’s half marathon training!
