Yes, you read that right! As I mentioned in a much earlier post, I planted beets in my garden this Summer. Well, either the seeds were bad or the animals that forage my back yard were very bad. No beets, this year. A few years back they thrived and wouldn't you know it, but I was on one of my diets that prohibited beets. They have a high sugar content to them evidently!
I still wanted to try my hand at a new flavor of gnocchi. Open the can of diced beets! I'll leave you with the link of a previous post and make a few "suggestions" about making beet gnocchi. Sweet potato or pumpkin are probably my favorite. The link calls for 1 1/2 cups of sweet potato. I wasn't sure of the outcome (I didn't want this experiment to go sideways). I basically halved the recipe. If after using a small egg the batter is too wet, just add more flour! Gnocchi creating is very forgiving.
What I got was a nice subtle tasting beet gnocchi! The appearance, however, I admit, looks like a familiar "pepto bismal" mauve. If you can get past the color, enjoy!!
Sorry for such a long hiatus. Glad to be back....this is my favorite place.
