Lentil Gnocchi

  • 1 cup lentil purée
  • 4 oz soft goat's cheese
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup flour, plus more as needed


To make the lentil purée, combine 1/2 cup of dried lentils with 1 cup of water with a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 25-35 minutes, or until lentils are very soft.

Add one cup of lentils to a food processor or high-powered blender and add the goat's cheese, rosemary and salt. Blend until smooth.

Pour lentil mixture into a bowl and fold in ¾ cup of flour with a spatula, being careful not to overmix. Add additional flour if needed, a tablespoon at a time, until dough is tacky, but manageable.

Roll handfuls of dough between your palms to create long, thin tubes. Cut into approximately 1-inch pieces.

Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Boil the gnocchi, a few handfuls at a time, until the gnocchi float to the surface. Drain.

To finish: sauté the gnocchi in a little olive oil over medium heat.
