How to prepare the broccoli gnocchi recipe

  1. First, remove the broccoli florets and wash them under running water. Then put them to cook in abundant salted water for 15 minutes . They will have to be tender if skewered with a fork.
  2. Once this is done, drain and let them dry (as well as cool) in a colander.
  3. Reduce them to a puree by mashing them with a fork or potato masher then transfer them to a bowl.
  4. Add the flour and the egg and knead first with a spoon and then by hand, transferring everything to the pastry board.
  5. Form loaves by rolling portions of dough between your hands then cut them into pieces of about 1 cm . You can form the gnocchi of the size you prefer and, if desired, create the characteristic lines by passing them on the prongs of a fork or on the rigagnocchi.
  6. Once ready, boil them in plenty of salted water until they come to the surface, then put them in a pan with the chosen sauce.
