Equipment

Gnocchi board
Potato ricer
Cooking pot

Directions

  • First, fill a large pot with plenty of cold water and put the potatoes in it. Then bring to a boil on high heat and simmer for about 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes. To check if the potatoes are soft enough, simply pierce them with a knife. If the knife slides easily to the middle of the potatoes, they are ready.
  • In the meantime, prepare the spinach. To do this, bring another pot of water to a boil with a pinch of salt. Rinse and clean the spinach leaves under running water. Then add to the boiling water and cook until soft.
  • Then drain the cooked spinach in a sieve and squeeze thoroughly. Allow to cool briefly, place on a board and chop very finely.
  • Now drain the cooked potatoes, let cool briefly and peel. Pile the flour on the work surface. Press the potatoes directly onto the pile of flour using a potato ricer.
  • Now add the chopped spinach to the pile of flour and potatoes together with a pinch of salt. Mix everything thoroughly with your hands until a soft compact green dough is formed.
  • Then take part of the dough and roll out with your fingertips until the thickness reaches about 2 cm. Then cut the dough roll into pieces again about 2 cm long.
  • If you want to give the gnocchi the typical groove shape, proceed as follows: Pull the gnocchi pieces with light pressure over the gnocchi board. Instead of the gnocchi board, a fork can also be used for this purpose. 
  • Then place each finished gnocchi on a floured tea towel. To cook the gnocchi, simply place them in boiling salted water. As soon as they rise to the surface, they are ready to eat.
