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!
