Yummy Pumpkin Gnocchi

Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Servings 4


  • 400 g Leftover Pumpkin
  • 120 g Ricotta drained
  • 50 g Parmesan finely grated, plus extra to serve
  • 1 Egg lightly beaten
  • 200 g Plain Flour plus extra to dust
  • 60 g Salted Butter
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • 20 Sage Leaves The Doctor's patch has some purple sage you can use!


  • Steam the pumpkin for 20 minutes, or until very soft and tender.
  • Using a potato masher, mash the steamed pumpkin to a smooth purée.
    Line surface with kitchen paper and spread pumpkin purée over before patting dry to ensure you remove as much moisture as possible.
  • In a bowl or food processor, mix the pumpkin purée, ricotta, grated parmesan, the egg, ¼ tsp salt, and some black pepper.
    Stir well to combine, then add the flour and use a wooden spoon to mix to a soft dough taking care not to "overmix".
  • Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and cut into 4.
    Roll each piece into a 15cm wide log. Cut the log into 2cm pieces using a floured knife. Gently mark each gnocchi with the back of a floured fork to achieve traditional ridges.
  • Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Tip in half the gnocchi and cook for 1-2 mins, until they rise to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon and cook the remaining gnocchi.
  • Heat 15g butter and the oil in a large frying pan. Add half the gnocchi and fry for 2 mins or until starting to brown. Chop and add the sage, fry for 1-2 mins, until the gnocchi are golden all over and the sage is crispy. Repeat with the remaining butter, gnocchi and sage leaves.
  • Serve with black pepper and parmesan.
