    REVIEW: Revised for Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Grain Free diet.

    This is just what I was looking for! I made a couple changes for dietary requirements and it was still amazing! I eliminated the flour, made Cashew Cream, thinned with Chicken stock, and changed out the Parmesan Cheese for Pecorino Romano Cheese made from Sheep's Milk. No dairy, no grains in my diet. I substituted Gluten Free Flour for the regular in the Gnocchi... It a definitely a hit!

    Sweet Potato Gnocchi w sage crm sce

    We love sweet potatoes, and use sage often, so this recipe was a great find! I substituted green onions for the shallots, and used Silk Coconut milk for the Cashew milk (son allergic to cashews) and left out the Parmesan cheese, (no dairy) Was easy to make, and tasted great!

    AMAZING

    No one could tell this was made with non dairy milk. I am allergic to regular milk. All of my relatives are always hesitant to try anything non-dairy. I made this for New Years eve and it was a hit! Was no too hard to make and came out better than a restaurant meal!

    Perfect Flavor

    This dish had so much flavor! I used Silk Unsweetened Almond milk instead of cashew milk and it tasted great.

    Pasta deliziosa!

    I loved this dish! I cheated and bought some pumpkin gnocchi from my local supermarket. I do not do well with cow's milk, so I substituted Pecorino Romano (sheep's milk) for the Parmesan cheese and topped the dish with a few turns of freshly cracked black peppercorns. Great flavor and could not have been simpler to make!

    Easy Peasy and Tastes Great

    Everyone in my family loves Sweet Potatoes, so I knew this was going to be a big family hit....and it was. I already had baked sweet potatoes from the previous day (I try to bake several at once and refrigerate what I don't use at that time), so didn't take long to whip this up at all. Will be fixing for the family at least once per month. Easy to do. Taste great. What more could you ask from a recipe?!

    Not for me

    I love the concept of not having to use cream in a cream sauce recipe, but I did find this particular recipe too complicated and time consuming for my busy life style.

    Sweet bites of joy

    This Gnocchi is arguably the best I'v had. I did augment the sage mixture a bit-I added a just a dash of basil to the mix! So soft and tender, this was such a hit with my in-laws!

    Made it in stages for convenience

    The cooking time for the whole dish was a bit daunting, so I made it in stages. I used 1 cup of leftover sweet potato/pumpkin mash in place of the 1lb sweet potatoes and used the egg. I made all of the raw gnocchi, which didn't take that long despite the kneading and cutting. When I was done I boiled just enough gnocchi to make a meal and ate it with a bit of margarine and shredded soy cheese. The rest of the raw gnocchi went in the fridge for my next meal, when I'll make the sauce. That way I made it without being in the kitchen for 2 hours.

    Okey dokey gnocchi

    Love this. Very savory. A fall like dish that is great year round. Main dish or side dish. Like a dish I'd get in an upscale restaurant.

    Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Sage Cream Sauce Review

    The Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Sage Cream Sauce is a fun alternative on an Italian classic Gnocchi dish. A subtle sweetness from the Sweet Potatoes marries well with the Sage Cream that the essence of Silk Soy provides.

    Sweet ITALIAN Heaven!

    I am an Italian-American (grandparent's right off the boat!) and have been wanting to perfect a gnocchi recipe for years! My grandma and I made these all the time. It is one of the Italian pasta's I've missed the most. These are amazing...I substituted the flour with a GF flour mix and used Almond Milk instead for my girl (: - and these rocked!!!! Can also make them with a golden yukon for a more 'traditional' gnocchi! Thanx, Silk!!!

    Cashew Cream

    The addition of the cashewmilk creates a thicker sauce than expected with very minimal fat and calories as compared to regular cream. It makes this dish so savory that you just cannot resist. It's a new twist on the boring pasta dishes I had as a child!! #LOVEEEEE

    Great Recipe, a wonderful dish

    I love this recipe. It is very easy to read and follow. Each step is laid out and easy to follow and understand. Most items are in the pantry and can be easily pulled together. My family loved it and cannot wait for me to make it again.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Sage Cream Sauce

Preparation

  • Prepare gnocchi
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Bake potatoes until soft, about 25 minutes. Allow to cool.
  • Scoop flesh from cooled potatoes and mash in a bowl.
  • Add egg, garlic powder and salt, mixing well.
  • Add flour, 1 cup at a time, until a workable dough forms.
  • Take 1/4 of the dough, place on a floured surface and roll into a 1/2-inch diameter snake.
  • Cut into 1/2-inch pieces and press each gnocchi with the tines of a fork.
  • Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Prepare sauce
  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add shallots and sauté until soft but not browned, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add sage and flour and cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Whisk in Silk, wine, salt and pepper, bringing to a simmer. Cook until thickened, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add gnocchi in two batches and simmer until they rise to the top.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and place in a strainer.
  • To serve, add gnocchi to sauce and coat well.
  • Spoon into bowls or onto plates and sprinkle with Parmesan, if desired.
