salt & pepper

1 tsp baking powder


! cup fresh basil

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

  1. Steam the sweet potato until soft. Mash with a fork and add in the flour, seasoning and baking powder.  Leave to one side in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

  2. Then form into small nugget shapes. Lightly fry in coconut oil until crispy on the outside.

  3. For the pesto, throw all the ingredients into a blend and pulse a few times.

  4. Add 1 large tbsp. of pesto towards the end of frying the gnocchi and a handful of spinach.
