Gnocchi With Creamy Sage Sauce

5.0 (1 reviews)

For the Sage Sauce:
3 Tbsp. Earth Balance margarine
1 tsp. chopped fresh sage
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

For the Gnocchi:
1 lb. white potatoes, peeled and quartered
Sea salt, to taste
1 1/4 cups white flour
Sage leaves to garnish

For the Sage Sauce:
• In a small saucepan, melt the Earth Balance over medium heat. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown.
• Remove from the heat and stir in the sage, the sea salt, and the black pepper. Set aside.

For the Gnocchi:
Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water for 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender.
• Stir in a generous amount of the sea salt, drain, and mash until smooth. Transfer to a bowl.
• Sprinkle flour into the bowl with one hand while kneading into the potatoes with the other hand.
• Continue until all the flour is worked in and the dough is smooth. This will take a few minutes (the dough will be sticky at first). Divide into 3 pieces.
• Form each piece into a 1- to 2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1-inch-long pieces and roll against a fork. Repeat with the remaining dough.
• Drop each gnocchi into heavily salted, boiling water. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until rising to the surface.
• Remove from the water, drain well, and transfer to a warm plate.
• Toss with the Sage Sauce and garnish with the sage leaves.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
