Who doesn’t love cooking or baking with vanilla? This month, we’re partnering with Sara Forte of Sprouted Kitchen to share tips, insights and recipes featuring vanilla.
Making your own pasta at home might sound daunting if you’ve never done it, but consider this: Making gnocchi is much closer to making cookies than it is to making spaghetti, in terms of technique. And by making your own gnocchi, you’re able to play with flavor combinations like sweet potato and vanilla.
Serving as the perfect complement to the sweet potato and brown butter sauce in this recipe, a vanilla-infused sauce will do a masterful job of adding its flavor, scent and warmth throughout this comforting dish.
To get started, let’s be honest: An easier job is made of this in a food processor. This recipe provides the “by hand” option, in case you don’t have one handy, or if you feel like tackling a manual project.
This will make a generous amount of gnocchi for four, so feel free to freeze some of them before boiling to cook at another time. To freeze, lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet or sheet pan, freeze and then transfer them to a zip-sealed bag to store. These would go great with some savory sausage.
