Avocado Gnocchi

Avocado gnocchi

Gnocchi…such a dense comfort food! But with little nutrition…So what happens when you make gnocchi without potatoes, without eggs and without gluten? Superfood gnocchi! Made out of avocado, chia seeds and quinoa flour…

200gr avocado flesh
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup quinoa flour
1 tbsp tapioca starch
1/8 tsp xanthan gum

Soak chia seeds in water for about 15 minutes, until it thickens the water. Meanwhile mash avocado and mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the lemon juice to the avocado and stir in the soaked chia seeds. Then add the flour and mix well to incorporate. Divide the dough in 4 pieces. Roll out each piece and cut with a knife.

To cook them, drop them in boiling water and fish them out as soon as they float, about 30 seconds.
My serving suggestion is to drizzle them with olive oil and lemon, add some fresh chopped dill, steamed broccoli and extra avocado if you are feeling indulgent!

    I’m in love with you.
    Living a dairy/gluten/soy/corn/etc.-free life has lead me to a very contracted existence…because I am too lazy to expand and explore the wonderful world of food you’ve inspired.
    Wow, thank you.
    New, ecstatic fan.
    Mille grazie!

    I tried this tonight. My “dough” was a gooey, sticky, mess. I tried a second batch with less avocado and more flour. It was the same except it tasted like mostly flour when I tested it. In the hopes that I wasn’t going to end up wasting more ingredients, I tried boiling a little clump. It just disintegrated into an icky concoction. Any suggestions?

  • Did you use xanthan gum and tapioca starch? The dough should be a little sticky/fluffy but not how you describe it.

  • […] ♔ Avocado Gnocchi? Seriously, how delicious do these little babies look? […]

    Do you think it will work with coconut flour instead of quinoa flour? I have no idea

    Dear friends, Brahmakumaris are vegetarian… and emphasize the importance of keeping thoughts pure… when preparing food… they either enhance or decrease the vibes of what we eat…thus affecting our health.
