- 6 russet potatoes, riced
- 1/4 cup blueberry powder
- 1 egg
- 2 cups flour
- In a medium pot over high heat, boil water. In the meantime dust a work space with flour, forming a pile of riced potatoes with a hole in the middle; add 1 cup of flour incorporating into the potatoes. In a small cup, beat egg and add to the other cup of flour. Stir in blueberry powder incorporating flour with the egg and powder until mixture is fairly dry and thick.
- Using a bench scraper, chop the mixture into the potato until they are evenly mixed. Add a dusting of flour to your surface and begin kneading the dough. Continue kneading, adding flour until the dough is dry to the touch and has a smooth texture.
- Cut dough into 6 ounce pieces. Roll each out on well-floured surface until each piece becomes a long rope. Cut each strip into 1/2 inch pieces.
- Add 40 or so gnocchi at a time to the boiling water until they rise to the top, letting them sit for 30 seconds. Remove with a strainer and place in a pan with olive oil to cool
