Lobster with Beetroot Gnocchi

One of our very favorite dishes.

?Red Beetroot Gnocchi


Yield 4 Servings

  • 1 cup boiled red beets 230 gr.
  • 1 cup boiled potatoes 230 gr.
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour 300gr. + one handful for dusting
  • ?pinch of salt (to taste)
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • ? cup parmesan cheese, (for serving if needed )


  • Boil the potatoes (20min from boiling) and the beets (60min from boiling). Drain and remove the beets’ skin under running water.
  • In a big bowl add the flour and mash the beets with a potato masher. Mash and add the potatoes and add the egg and a pinch of salt.
  • Mix together with a fork first and with your hands later to create an airy and light dough. On a flat surface dusted with flour, roll a long cylinder of dough and cut it in 1 inch long pieces. Place the gnocchi on some parchment paper, one next to the other.
  • Fill a large pot with water and bring it to boil. Add salt and one tablespoon of oil in order not to let the gnocchi stick together and drop 10/12 gnocchi into the water. Don’t overcrowd (I did 10 at the time).After 3/4 minutes the gnocchi, once cooked, will come to the surface.
  • Remove them from the pot and place them in a bowl.
  • In hot pan, add olive oil and lightly saut? gnocchi for 2-3 minutes, then add to the lobster pesto cream direction listed below.
