IMG_0136Sweet potato gnocchi are easy to make and wonderful to serve to vegetarian or vegan guests (or any other guest for that matter!)

2 sweet potatoes or yams
1/4 cup of pine nuts, roasted, chopped and set aside
3-4 leaves of fresh sage
3 T extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Bake sweet potatoes until soft. Let cool. Peel. Mix the potatoes with salt and pepper. Take your hands and shape the potatoes into oblong dumplings. You shouldn’t need any flour to bind (unlike the photo). Heat a pan with olive oil and sage. Let the gnocchi pan fry on both sides. Drizzle with fried sage and chopped, roasted pine nuts.
