Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 200°C CircoTherm® hot-air system. Place washed beetroots in a fireproof dish and cover with the lid. Alternatively you can use aluminium foil to cover the dish. Bake for 1 hour, then turn the oven off and leave the dish in the remaining heat for another 15 minutes.

Step 2

Step 2

Peel beetroots under running water. Use a scale to measure 200 gr beetroot. Grind finely. Mix with ricotta, egg, parmesan, salt, pepper and spices. Add flour.

Step 3

Step 3

Cover a baking tray with soft butter. Place around 80 gr flour in a mixing bowl. Use two teaspoons to extract just enough dough for each gnocchi – in total it’ll be 90 gnocchi you roll in the mixing bowl with your hands. Place on the baking tray. Dip a fork first into flour and then into the gnocchi to create lines.

Idea: You can also boil gnocchi in salt water. Form gnocchi and place immediately into boiling water. If you leave them outside, they tend to stick to the surface. After they surface, let them simmer for another two minutes before you ladle them on a plate.
