IngredientsGreen Tea Gnocchi

  • 490g ricotta
  • 2 tsp of Dilmah Pure Green Tea, ground loose leaf tea
  • 2 eggs
  • Finely cracked black pepper and salt to taste

MethodGreen Tea Gnocchi 

  • Stir together the ricotta, tea, eggs, salt and pepper until blended
  • Add the flour and stir until dough forms a large ball.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead slightly, adding more flour if mixture is too sticky.
  • Divide the dough into several pieces and roll each one into cigar shapes about 8mm wide.
  • Cut each ‘cigar’ into 2.5cm segments.
  • Lightly press your knuckle or the back of a fork into each segment to make slight indentations.
  • Fill a large pot with water and bring to the boil over high heat.
  • When the water boils, sprinkle in 1 tablespoon of salt.
  • Drop the gnocchi into the boiling water in small batches.
  • Cook until they float to the surface, for about 3 minutes.
  • Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked gnocchi to a colander.
  • The gnocchi will have expanded slightly in size to tender pillowy dumplings.

To Serve 

  • Heat a non-stick pan and place the butter in.
  • Let it melt and then add the extra 2 teaspoons of green tea.
  • Add the still hot gnocchi and toss through the butter and tea until the gnocchi is a slight golden colour.
