Hot Pink Beet Gnocchi

  1. Prep Time 30 min
  2. Cook Time 45 min
  3. Total Time 1hr 15min
  4. Serves 4-6p


  • 3 small Chioggia Beets
  • 2 large Russet Potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 3-3 1/2 cups flour, plus more for kneading (white or GF flour works!)
  • 1 cup Parmesan, plus more for serving
  • ⅓ cup Sage, chopped
  • ⅓ cup Butter
  • Salt & Pepper


To make the gnocchi dough:

  1. Step One: Preheat the oven to 450F.
  2. Step Two: Wash beets and potatoes, then wrap the beets in tin foil and pierce the potatoes with a fork. Bake both for ~40-45 minutes. 
  3. Step Three: Allow both beets and potatoes to cool enough, then remove the skins from both. Set aside. 
  4. Step Four: In a food processor or blender, combine beets, Parmesan, eggs, and 1 tsp of salt. Blend until smooth and set aside. 
  5. Step Five: Using a cheese grater, grate the potatoes into a bowl. Then, add the blended beet mixture and stir to combine. 
  6. Step Six: Next, add in one cup of flour at a time, mixing with a wooden spoon, until you have a ball of dough. You don’t want it too sticky! 3-3.5 cups of flour should do. 
  7. Step Seven: Turn the dough ball over onto a floured surface and knead for 2-3 minutes, then cut it into 6 portions. 
  8. Step Eight: Roll each individual portion out into a ½” thick rope and cut into ½” gnocchi pillows. The fresh-cut gnocchi can be placed on a piece of parchment paper while you roll and cut the remaining portions.

To make the gnocchi dish: 

  1. Step 9: Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a few big pinches of salt.
  2. Step 10: Boil the gnocchi in small batches, removing them from the water when they’ve been floating at the top for at least 30 seconds, and set aside. 
  3. Step 11: In a pan over medium-high heat, melt ¼ the butter, then add ¼ of the freshly cut sage. 
  4. Step 12: Once butter is frothing and bubbling, add in ¼ of the gnocchi and a pinch of salt, then stir to combine. Cook the gnocchi for 2-3 minutes on one side and turn over to cook for another 2-3 minutes. Place in a bowl, covered, and cook the remaining 3 portions of gnocchi. 
  5. Step 13: Dish up into bowls and top with Parmesan cheese and freshly cracked pepper.

Bon appetit!
