Pumpkin baked fries or chips
To bring everyone to your table and make them all happy, just make pumpkin gnocchi!
This is a very therapeutic dish as it involves a lot of relaxing hand work that can be shared with one or more friends or family members - you won't believe how much you'll gossip and laugh till it happens 😄.
Needless to tell you, this prep also makes a great romantic activity with your date😇
As we are yogis, a note about the pumpkin orange color that reminds us of the sacral chakra located about 2 in/ 4cm below your navel. This orange chakra is associated with our emotions, creativity and sexuality 😜
If you already have a potato gnocchi recipe you like, you can simply make 50% potatoes and 50% pumpkin. We tried mixing 50% pumpkin and 50% lentils and the only pumpkin version.
Our recipe calls for only pumpkin and no egg to make it vegan friendly and lighter.
- 600gr / 1.3lb of pumpkin pulp
- about 300gr /2 cups regular white flour or rice flour if there are any gluten issues or a mix of white and farro flours to twist the flavor. Bear in mind you might need more according to the moisture of your dough
- some turmeric, pepper to enhance the color and the nutrient content
- fresh ginger, nutmeg and herbs (optional)
On a silicone mat pour some flour, add the pumpkin purée and start mixing and kneading. Slowly add as much flour as you need to get a nice, elastic dough ball that doesn't stick to your hands.
As the gnocchi are ready, rest them on a floured surface and distance them so they won't stick up together into their original dough ball.
