Sweet potato gnocchi with dill & parsley tapenade

Serves 4

Ingredients
1kg orange sweet potato
110g plain flour
1 egg yolk
60ml extra Virgin Olive Oil
50g butter
1 tablespoon fresh dill sprigs
2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley

Tapenade
½ cup firmly packed fresh dill
1 cup firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives
1/3 cup blanched & roasted almonds
125ml extra virgin olive oil

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Place whole sweet potatoes in oven until soft.
  • Cool for 15 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut potatoes in half lengthways: spoon hot flesh into a medium bowl. Season to taste. Stir in flour & egg yolk until combined.
  • Divide gnocchi dough into 4 portions; roll each portion on a floured surface into long ropes 30cm long. Cut each rope into 3cm pieces. Place gnocchi on a lightly floured baking paper lined tray. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • Tapenade: Finely chop the herbs, garlic, olives & almonds. Place in a bowl & mix well together with olive oil. Season to taste.
  • Cook gnocchi, in batches, in a large saucepan of salted boiling water for 5 minutes or until gnocchi float to the surface & are cooked through. Remove gnocchi from pan with a slotted spoon to an oven tray.
  • Heat oil & butter in a large frying pan over medium heat until foamy. Add gnocchi; cook for 2 minutes each side or until lightly browned. Remove from heat. Gently stir in tapenade.
  • Serve immediately topped with dill & parsley & parmesan.
