Whole Wheat Pumpkin Gnocchi and baked goods!

by Nicole on December 3, 2009

I was busy yesterday! After going to work, then the gym for an elliptical session I came home and got my baking (and cooking) pants on.

Danny and I have been on an ongoing muffin kick. We both eat them during the day, since we are trying to eat as little processed foods as possible. These muffins are a great breakfast food. I usually make these pumpkin dark chocolate chip muffins and blueberry muffins about every 3 or 4 weeks. They are super healthy and super de-lish.

I figured since I already had the pumpkin out…why not, right???

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Gnocchi

1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or nutmeg)
1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin
Add ingredients together and mix with hands to form a dough. If it is too sticky, add a bit more flour and mix. Break off about 1/5 of the dough and roll into a long, even strip. Cut gnocchi into desired size with knife.
Boil a large pot of water and add salt liberally. Boil gnocchi in small batches until it floats, about 5 minutes. Drain. I added about a teaspoon of butter, grated pecorino romano and a handful of mozzarella cheese to each bowl.

Cut them into logs. Mine were far from perfect, but who’s judging??

This is the dough….obviously.
WOW! These were SO amazing, I just couldn’t believe it. This is definitely worth trying and they really didn’t feel heavy because of the pumpkin. Don’t be scared away by the thought of pumpkin and pasta, if it normally isn’t for you. You can barely taste the pumpkin at all! And if you haven’t checked out HowSweetEats yet, you MUST!

Happy almost Friday!

I love the idea of whole wheat with pumpkin for gnocchi. It sounds so hearty and filling, and the flavor must be amazing. Who needs meat?!!
