Gnocchi are one of those seemingly secret restaurant-only dishes that I always order. Surprisingly enough, they are super easy to make at home! This recipe uses sweet potato for an interesting depth of flavor and whole wheat pastry flour which is an awesome way to slip in some whole grains. They also feature nutmeg, which is my absolute favorite spice in the whole world, but you could swap in anything you like — crushed red chile flakes would be really fun. Plus, there are no eggs, so the gnocchi are vegan! I highly recommend making a giant batch, then portioning them out and freezing them (do this before you boil the gnocchi) for easy dinners anytime.
