How to make Homemade gnocchi from beetroot dough
Gnocchi are a good dietary product, useful for health. This is an Italian version of dumplings and is also served to the table as an addition to the first courses. In addition, gnocchi can also act as a separate dish under some sauce or dressing. The recipe for cooking Italian dumplings is not complicated.
How to make Pesto sauce at home
Peel the potatoes and cook them on the stove. We will do the same with beets, but it must first be boiled, and then cleaned.
We will grind potatoes and beets separately on a fine grater. You can additionally grind it with a blender.
Now these ingredients can be mixed, pepper and salt, and sprinkle four or five tablespoons of flour. Perhaps you will need more flour, smorit by eye to get an elastic dough. Knead the potato-beet dough.
Roll sausages of medium thickness out of it and cut into separate parts about three centimeters long.
I cook gnocchi exclusively in a steamer. I think if you cook in the usual way in boiling water, they will turn into mashed potatoes.
If you use gnocchi as a separate dish, you can immediately prepare a dressing for them, for example, onion. To do this, chop the onion into small pieces and fry it in vegetable oil.
Alternatively, you can serve a dish with pesto sauce. The combination is also great. Bon Appetit!
