Homemade Gnocchi



  • 400gr potatoes (mealy)
  • 40gr semolina
  • ca. 50gr potato flour
  • 1 eggyolk (as option)*
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • a bit flour

*for a vegan version, the recipe also works without eggyolk


  1. Cook potatoes for about 20-25 minutes in a pot with salted water.
  2. Finally, peel hot potatoes, press through a potato press and let them cool down.
  3. Later, stir in eggyolk, salt, nutmeg.
  4. Then add semolina and let it swell for about 10-15 minutes.
  5. Add potato flour until the dough isn’t sticky anymore.
  6. Divide the dough and roll both parts to strands (they should be about 1,5-2cm thick).
  7. Cut the strands into pieces.
  8. Corm the pieces to small balls and dust them with flour.
  9. For the typical gnocchi pattern, press a small groove into the balls with a dull knife first; then turn them around and press into the dough with a folk.
  10. Bring salted water in a pot to the boil and put the gnocchi into the hot water carefully.
  11. As soon as they come to the surface, remove them from the pot and drain well.
  12. If you like you can roast them in some oil or butter.
  13. Enjoy! 🙂
