QUAIL BAL­LO­TINE

Gourmet (South Africa) - - LIFESTYLE -

Serves 6

Gnoc­chi

4 large pota­toes 1 free-range egg 200g flour

20g salt

1. Peel, cut and boil the pota­toes un­til soft, then mash and al­low to cool (you should have roughly 500g of mash). 2. Add in egg and mix, fol­low­ing flour and salt. Mix well un­til ev­ery­thing comes to­gether to form a ‘dough’.

3. On a floured sur­face, break off a ping-pong ball-sized round, roll out into a long cylin­dri­cal shape and cut into 2cm lengths or ‘tubes’. Gen­tly press down on each tube with your thumb, mak­ing a small in­den­ta­tion. Re­peat, un­til all the dough is used up. 4. In boil­ing water, cook un­til the gnoc­chi balls start to float. Re­move with a slot­ted spoon as soon as they come to the sur­face, about 3 min­utes, then place straight into iced water. Set aside.
