Cooking Meditation: Homemade Gnocchi Recipe
There's just something so calming and therapeutic about finding a nice recipe, gathering beautiful fresh ingredients and creating a nourishing dish from scratch for yourself and your loved ones.
During these intense and uncertain times of the pandemic where energy and emotions have been a little up and down, we've found solace in getting back to basics and using simple home cooking as a kind of meditation to unplug and get creative during our day. 
This is a very basic and traditional homemade gnocchi recipe. We suggest getting clean, comfy, light some candles, pour a glass of your favourite wine, sparkling water with lemon or herbal tea, put your favourite cooking playlist on and unwind with this simple gnocchi recipe.

  • Sage
  • Parmesan
Meditation Cooking : Easy Homemade Gnocchi Recipe


Boil the potatoes with lots of salt until soft. Remove and peel while still hot and then use two forks to mash them. You’re not really mashing more, creating a fluffy base. If you do this while it’s hot it will be fluffier. 

When you’re done add 2 eggs onto the fluff and fold in. Then bit by bit add a cup of flour and a pinch of salt and work it in. It’s important not to over mix. You want it to come together but with as light of a touch as possible. 

If the dough is too sticky add a little more flour. Use your senses and intuition. Flour your surfaces. Now divide the dough and roll out snakes that are about the width of your thumb, and using a knife cut the gnocchi into little pillows. 

When you’re ready to cook them, drop the gnocchi into boiling water. They will cook very quickly in less than a minute. Once they float, they’re done. Take them out with a slotted spoon and enjoy with some butter, fried sage and parmesan, or pesto or homemade tomato sauce!
