Ingredients to get

  • 250g cooked beets
  • 600g potatoes
  • 150g feta cheese
  • 100g Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 250g flour
  • 20g butter
  • Hazelnuts
  • Parsley
  • Salt and pepper

The recipe

Cook the potatoes with their skin in a large pot of boiling water for 30 to 40 minutes, or until they are tender.

Meanwhile, blend the beets in a food processor. Set aside.

Prepare the feta cream by blending the feta cheese with Greek yogurt in a food processor until smooth. Refrigerate the mixture.

After cooking, drain the potatoes, peel them, and mash them while still hot.

In a bowl, mix the mashed potatoes with the beet puree, flour, salt, and pepper. Add the egg and knead until you have a smooth dough ball.

Shape the gnocchi: divide the floured dough ball into 4 pieces, then roll each piece into 4 logs. Cut 3 cm gnocchi from each log. Flour them well to prevent sticking or drying.

Cook the gnocchi in a large pot of salted boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they float to the surface. Remove them with a slotted spoon and sauté them in a pan with butter to grill them.

While they're grilling, toast some hazelnuts in a pan.

Plate the dish by placing the feta cream, grilled gnocchi, and toasted hazelnuts. Add chopped parsley, season to taste, and enjoy immediately.
