GLUTEN FREE GNUDI RECIPE



In Sage butter no less.

Gnudi is the cousin of Gnocchi. The somewhat refined cousin. Even fluffier than Nona's potato dumpling from Tuscany.
Made with Ricotta, they make for the perfect appetizer, or main course if you will.

Here is Victoria's most successful version of them:

3 Eggs
425 gr Ricotta (Please no low fat....)
3/4 Cup of GF PATISSERIE flour, plus 3/4 tsp Xanthan (substitute at your own risk)
1tsp Salt
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In a bowl whisk eggs until blended. Add Ricotta and whisk into the eggs.
Add flour, Xanthan, salt and cheese. Whisk some more until the dough is blended.
Let rest in fridge for 20 minutes, then with a couple of teaspoons form Gnudi and drop into hot, simmering water. 
Once they start floating, let them simmer for another minute. Skim the Gnudi into browned sage butter, toss gently and serve. Family will be happy.

I am just glad that I don't have to write a cookbook. That's a tedious job. Especially with Victoria as an over the shoulder editor.

Can someone tall me whats in the Patissere Flour? I cant find any info on it

Nadege said...

Lesley, do you mean "patisserie flour"? (pastry flour, glutten free of course).
That looks really good! Between Ken's choucroute and these gnudi, I would have 2 wonderful meals.

I had never heard of gnudi before... and love ricotta. I have had gf gnocchi - which they always made very small (likely to keep them together). This is an intriguing recipe - thanks so much!

Hey Claudine,

welcome. Due to Celiacs we cook a lot and Victoria http://forthemovies.blogspot.com/2010/11/twenty-three.htmldoes not stop until she figured it out.

Our daughter (in TO) posted one of her recipes for GF Gnocchi here:

I would love to make these gnudi but with fresh goat cheese instead of ricotta as it not permitted to lactose intolerant persons.

For a gluten free flour mix, I make my own and it is very easy to do. For those who are interested, here is the recipe : http://missdiane.canalblog.com/archives/2010/11/05/19526590.html4
