Gluten-Free Pumpkin Gnocchi With Sage & Onion Parmesan Sauce
Pillowy Gluten-Free Pumpkin Gnocchi made with the most delicious sage and onion parmesan sauce. In this gnocchi recipe, the flavours come from pumpkin and buttermilk. The delicately flavoured gnocchi is then finished with a creamy sage and onion parmesan sauce making this Italian dish outstanding.
Gnocchi is a small bite-size dumpling that is speculated to come from Italy. The traditional pasta-like dumpling is made mostly of potatoes. The question people ask, is it pasta? Not really, pasta is made with flour, eggs and water. The gnocchi is typically made with flour, mashed potatoes and eggs. For this gluten-free pumpkin gnocchi recipe, I used potato flour, so there is no need to cook the potatoes and then mash them. Also, I added pumpkin puree, buttermilk and a pinch of nutmeg. The small dumplings are outstanding. But it is the sauce that ties everything together.
What I love about making gnocchi, they are super easy to make, and you can add them to various sauces. You can also add textures and flavours like pumpkin, spinach, cheese, even bacon to make them extra tasty. Because I wanted to keep the fall flavours, I added pumpkin, but it is the healthy buttermilk that made them extra tasty. To make the sauce is simple 🙂 First, you sauté the onions with fresh sage, then add milk, parmesan cheese, spices, and cook until the sauce thickens. Once the pumpkin gnocchi is cooked, add them to the sauce and stir, that’s it! For serving, I add extra parmesan cheese and fresh sage. Gnocchi makes for a wonderful starter, a side or the main course enjoy! You will find more gluten-free pumpkin recipes here->
