1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup water
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup almond flour, ivory teff, or sorghum flour
1. Grind the macadamia nuts in your blender with the salt and water until a smooth cream is formed. This will be about the consistency of yogurt.
2. Add the flour and allow to ‘soak’ overnight in a tightly closed container in the fridge. This will soften the starches. You can do this step beforehand using just the water if you prefer. I find it gives a smoother texture to the gnocchi.
3. Remove. This should be the texture of play-dough. Roll into a long rope, about 1 inch in diameter. Cut into small pieces one inch long.
4. Using the back of a fork, lay the fork on the counter. Place one piece of gnocchi on the back of the fork and slide/flick it down, forming a little notched pillow (see picture for details, since I’ve shown both sides).
5. Place in a glass casserole dish and cover tightly (add a tablespoon of water to the bottom of the dish, if desired). Place in dehydrator and warm for 3 hours.
6. Serve with a nice homemade sauce (pictured is a mix of home dried romas, water, salt, and a little olive oil), a salad, and (if desired) a sprinkle of homemade "Parmesan" cheese.
These gnocchi are for JoyceH by request.
I tried to replicate the heavy, creamy texture of real gnocchi. The secret to these is a long soak of the starches (if using a flour) and a gentle, closed heating in the dehydrator.
Using almond flour (the defatted dehydrated flour left after making homemade almond milk, these can be low carbohydrate as well. Make sure you grind it into a powder!
Because these are made with fat (the nuts) and starch (if using flour) they are very filling, and so I’ve scaled the recipe to serve two.
You’ll find with raw foods like this that you need less of a serving size to feel satiated.
