Paleo sweet potato gnocchi

Paleo sweet potato gnocchi with sausage and sage

Ingredients (yield 36):

1 1/4 pounds sweet potato

1 tsp. kosher salt

1 large egg

1/2 cup blanched almond flour

1/3 cup + 1 tbl. arrowroot powder

1 1/2 tbl. coconut flour

1/4 cup tapioca starch

Method:

Bake and cool sweet potatoes (bake at 450°F for ~60 minutes).  Once cool, peel and add cooked sweet potato to your stand mixer.  Using paddle attachment blend in egg, salt, almond flour, arrowroot powder, coconut flour, and tapioca starch.  The dough will be sticky, do not try to roll it out into strands like regular gnocchi!  Use a 1 tablespoon size disher to scoop evenly sized pieces of dough.  I didn’t try running them down the backside of a fork to mimic the classic gnocchi look, the dough seemed too tacky for the task.  Cook the dough in boiling salted water, once they float, they are done!
