The secret to success in this case lies in incorporating a spinach-based mix into the gnocchi dough. This vegetable, packed with nutritional benefits, not only enhances the dish's color but also improves its taste. Gnocchi with this addition is simply even better!

Ingredients:

  • 3.5 oz fresh spinach,
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic,
  • 1 teaspoon of salt,
  • 1.5 lbs of potatoes,
  • 2 cups of wheat flour,
  • 2 tablespoons of potato starch.

Additions

  • Melted butter,
  • Grated Parmesan.

How to prepare:

Step 1. Begin by peeling and boiling the potatoes in salted water. Meanwhile, prepare a spinach mix to add a vibrant green color to the gnocchi. Blend fresh spinach leaves, peeled cloves of garlic, and salt.

Step 2. Transfer the boiled potatoes to a potato ricer, which quickly prepares the base for the gnocchi.
