Default Ginger Sweet Potato Gnocchi & Garlic Cream Sauce (Thanksgiving Recipes)


Prep Time: 30 minutes or less | Cook Time: 1 - 2 hours | Serves: 3


Dinner Pasta Italian

Ingredients:




Ginger and garlic play very well together. Traditionally that happens most frequently in Asian-influenced dishes, but I wanted to get the same effect in something from another region. Gnocchi are great because they're relatively difficult to mess up, allow the addition of flavoring ingredients, and can be made well in advance and frozen instead of cooking immediately (though mine were fresh).

Ingredients:
gnocchi:
Sweet Potatoes
Flour
ginger
1 egg

sauce:
1 medium onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 pint heavy cream
1/4 cup ****er
3-4 Tablespoons flour

Step 1:






Start by cutting your sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. You're looking for mostly-same-size pieces so they cook evenly.

Step 2:








Oil up a cookie sheet, oil the taters, and put them cut-side down on the sheet. Toss them in a 350 degree oven for 20-40 minutes.

They should be fork-smooshy, which is beyond fork tender. Basically they should do this and not bounce back up when you take away the fork:

Step 3:






At that level of doneness, the skin of the sweet potato will generally just slough off as single piece.

Step 4:








Smash those things up. They shouldn't put up much resistance, but make sure there are no fibrous bits. If there are you may want to consider finishing in the microwave or baking for a bit longer.
