Susu’s AIP Gnocchi [Paleo, Autoimmune Protocol Friendly, dairy free, nut free, nightshade free]

My family and I have decided to “go AIP” for several months in a somewhat desperate attempt to resolve our autoimmune issues. Of course there was concern about how manageable this new restrictive diet would be as we enjoy many flavorful ethnic dishes on a daily basis! Fortunately, I hit several wonderful blogs that focus on AIP friendly recipes and have been having a lot of fun on this new “restrictive” lifestyle change! I have had a lot of inspiration, and yesterday I wanted to surprise my family with a “fancy” meal so I took a leap and attempted an AIP version of an old favorite. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Gnocchi:
1 Taiwan yam (Japanese sweet potato), roasted
1 cup tapioca starch
4 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp grass fed gelatin
2 tbsp boiling water
1 tsp Redmond’s Real Salt

Method:
– In medium or large mixing bowl combine gelatin and boiling water and mix until dissolved.
– Add peeled roasted yam and blend until smooth with immersion (stick) blender. (If no immersion blender, this can be made in a blender and food processor).
– Add rest of ingredients and blend until smooth.
– Place dough in refrigerator and allow to chill and firm up completely, at least a couple hours.
– Separate dough into two balls, keeping one in the fridge.
– In plastic wrap or silicone cutting board, roll dough ball out into about a one-inch log and with a sharp knife slice the log into 1/2 inch pieces.
– Using your hands, roll slices into oblong balls and slice three shallow marks on the top.
– Place finished gnocchi on parchment paper-lined baking sheet about an inch apart.
– Repeat with second dough ball.
– Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
– Let rest 5 minutes.
– Toss in sauce before serving.
– Enjoy!

    1. You will find them at Asian markets and possibly other ethnic groceries, but I did confirm that the Whole Foods in my area does carry them. I’m not sure about other locations, but you can make a quick call to the closest location and ask to speak to someone in produce. They are also called white sweet potatoes and Taiwan yams. They are white flesh with purple skin.

      Let me know what you think! 🙂
