Pumpkin Spice Latte Gnocchi

Does it ever happen to you to taste something and guess how it would be in a different form?
I suppose most of you have had at least once the famous order Depakote online pumpkin spice latte. I tasted it just two weeks ago, and the result of that experience is this recipe that to be honest has been kind of a surprise.

The idea in my opinion is very simple; I tried to keep the flavour as close as possible to the original. The recipe could still be improved, but I must admit that as a starting point it was pretty remarkable; I suppose it could be great with some more “spiciness” like some hot chilli.

Ingredients

  • 800g potatoes
  • 400g squash (butternut or pumplkin)
  • 300g dried mozzarella
  • 2 shots of espresso coffee
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • Grated hard cheese (preferably parmesan cheese)
  • ½ cup milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Plain flour

Method

Gnocchi

  • Steam the potatoes for 45 minutes, until they are completely cooked and soft.
  • Smash them in a large bowl, pour the coffee, and mix them until they have a uniform colour.
  • Add the flour. Keep mixing and adding flour as long as the potatoes absorb it; stop when the mixture is compact and smooth. If it starts crumbling, add just a bit of water to fix it. There is no fixed proportion; for example I used about 200g of flour.
  • On a floured surface, roll the dough with your hands and make a ½ inch wide tube. Cut the tube into pieces 1 inch long.
  • Roll each piece on the tines of a fork by pressing it softly with your thumb.
  • Make them rest on a floured canvas for about an hour.

Sauce

  • Cook the squash in a pan with the milk and the cinnamon for about half an hour, adding some water when it gets dry.
  • Once the squash is soft, blend it and adjust with salt and pepper according to your taste.

Composition

  • Boil in hot water the gnocchi until they float, drain them and place them in a casserole.
  • Mix the gnocchi with the pumpkin sauce and cover them with some diced mozzarella and the grated cheese.
  • Put the casserole in preheated oven at 200°C/390°F grill option for about 5 minutes, until the top is golden.
