Rye Sourdough Gnocchi

Tonight I had planned to make rye sourdough tagliatelle to go with Soph’s defrosted ragu. However while cleaning out the fridge today I remembered we had some roast potatoes that need using up. So I’ve changed my plans and now I’m doing rye sourdough gnocchi.

I’m basing my recipe loosely on this rye gnocchi recipe, adding in my starter and adjusting for how much potato I have:

  • 380g potato
  • 75g refreshed rye starter @ 200% hydration
  • 100g rye flour
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp salt

That all gets mixed together and put in the fridge to rest.

When I’m ready to cook I roll out the dough and cut into thumb-sized pieces and press down with a fork.

These get simmered in salted water for a few to cook them.

Then, as suggested in the recipe, I’m going to fry them up in butter, with salt & pepper.

Yeah… they stuck together. But we managed to cut them up again.

Finally serve with the reheated ragu & grated Parmesan.
