  • 1kg of potatoes
  • ~300g of flour
  • 2 eggs yolk
  • olive oil
  • nutmeg (optional), salt

Steps - Gnocchis

  1. put the potatoes in the oven for ~40 minutes. Side note: cooking potatoes in a pan with water is not recommended because we want to avoid water as much as possible.
  2. Mash the potatoes (with a ricer if you have one).
  3. Add the yolks, salt, nutmeg, 200g of flour and 2 spoons of olive oil. Then mix everything.
  4. Add the rest of the flour until you have a firm dough. Note: you’re not making bread. It’s normal if the dough is slightly sticky!
  5. Roll the sought until you have a snake shape and then cut it into equal pieces.
  6. In a large pot of salted water, add the gnocchis. Cooking gnocchis goes really fast, there’s no need to put them all together at the same time! Boil until they float to the surface. Remove them with a wok skimmer.
  7. Keep the boiling water!

💡 If you make too many gnocchis, you can freeze them. But you will have to put them in cold water first, so they stop being cooked.


  1. Put some butter in a hot and large pan
  2. add the minced garlic, and cook for 30 seconds
  3. add mushrooms. If you went with brown mushrooms, cut them into 4/6 pieces.
  4. when the mushrooms are ready, add the gnocchi to the pan.
  5. add the grated cheese. Be generous!
  6. add some boiling water from the gnocchis pot. Start with 1 ladle and add more if needed.
  7. when you have the right consistency for the sauce, add the parsley and some pepper
  8. serve! (you can add extra grated cheese)
