  2. Mash the potatoes with Mavella Superfoods Veggie Boost, mixing thoroughly.
  3. Place 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour on a kneading surface and add the mashed potatoes, kneading so it comes together. Add more flour as needeed, until the dough is no longer sticky.
  4. Portion the dough into 8 sections and roll into ropes.
  5. Cut each rope into small, thumb-size pieces. Set aside on a baking tray dusted with flour. 
  6. Roll each gnocchi on a grooved surface, or on the back of a fork. Set aside to dry for a couple of minutes.
