Leftover Pumpkin? Make Gnocchi!

November 29th, 2010

In Argentina, on the 29th of the month, the tradition is to make gnocchi, Los Ñoquis del 29. There are a few stories to explain the origins of this tradition but, regardless, it is a nice excuse to get together with friends and family.

Last month, when Juan’s mom told me about this tradition, I made Pumpkin Gnocchi. We served them with a brown butter-shallot-walnut sauce. The recipe could be easily adapted for any leftover pumpkin from Thanksgiving. Enjoy!

Ginny’s Pumpkin Gnocchi
2 cans pumpkin
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
enough flour to create a non-sticky dough (about 4 cups)

Mix all the ingredients together. Roll the gnocchi (add more flour if necessary) and boil until they rise to the top of pot.
