Gluten Free Sweet Potato Gnocchi

I don’t know about you, but for me gnocchi have been a staple during Passover since I was a kid. Traditionally made with potatoes, this sweet potato twist on gluten free gnocchi is sure to become a year round favorite for the whole family.

Gluten Free Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Italian
Keyword: Gluten Free, Vegetarian


  • 1 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Use Kosher for Passover to make K4P
  • 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato roast a whole sweet potato, peel it, and mash it
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Garlic or Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Butter or Non-Dairy Alternative


  • Start to bring a pot of water to a boil.
  • Lightly flour a flat surface. (I use my counter top but you could use a large cutting board)
  • Pour 1 cup of flour onto the surface and add the mashed sweet potato on top.
  • Place the salt and garlic to taste (1 tsp each about) on top of the mound you have created.
  • Mix this all together using your hands until a dough begins to form.
  • Make a small well in the dough and crack the egg into the middle.
  • Using your hands, continue to mix until all the ingredients are combined.
  • If the dough is still sticking to your hands when combined, add in more flour a little at a time until it doesn't stick and makes a ball.
  • Cut the ball into fourths.
  • Roll out each fourth into a snake.
  • Using a knife, cut the snakes into small pieces about the width of a pinky finger.
  • Using a fork, make a small indent in the middle of each piece. (optional)
  • Put the pieces to boil and boil about 7-10 minutes until the gnocchi floats.
  • Once the gnocchi start to float to the top, heat a pan with 1 tbsp butter.
  • Once the gnocchi are floating on the top, drain them and move them to the buttered pan. Fry them lightly in the pan, flipping them after a few minutes so both sides get slightly brown and crispy.
  • Top with any sauce of choice. I recommend garlic butter.
