Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Cook Time: 5-10 Minutes

Yield: 4

Ingredients:

Gnocchi
  • 1 medium sweet potato about 1 1/4 cup mashed
  • 3/4 cup cassava flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Kale
  • 6 cups chopped kale
  • 1 can full fat canned coconut milk
  • 1/4 large white onion minced
  • 2 large garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 sage leaves minced
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In a food processor or bowl combine ingredients for gnocchi until smooth. If you don’t have cooked sweet potato on hand, make it by peeling a large sweet potato, cutting into 2″ chunks, and boiling in water until soft (drain water from sweet potatoes after boiling).
  2. Separate dough into eight equal parts and roll out into 3/4″ diameter tubes on a surface dusted lightly with cassava flour. Cut the tubes of dough into 1″ pieces.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and drop gnocchi into it. Once they have risen to the surface, remove, and drizzle lightly with olive oil.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and drizzle with olive oil. Add gnocchi and cook on each side until golden, then remove.
  5. In a saucepan simmer ingredients for sauce for about five minutes. Add kale and wilt in sauce. Serve with gnocchi.
