Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 5-10 Minutes
- 1 medium sweet potato about 1 1/4 cup mashed
- 3/4 cup cassava flour
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 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
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).
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.
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.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and drizzle with olive oil. Add gnocchi and cook on each side until golden, then remove.
In a saucepan simmer ingredients for sauce for about five minutes. Add kale and wilt in sauce. Serve with gnocchi.
