Potato gnocchi with cornstarch

21 mayo, 2021

Do you know the tradition of the 29 gnocchi? This custom was born in Italy, where Pantaleon cured the sick. On December 29, hungry, he knocked on the door of some peasants, who invited him to share the food made with inexpensive ingredients available: gnocchi. Grateful, Pantaleón announced a good year of fishing and harvests. The peasant family found gold coins under each plate after Pantaleón left, ushering in the period of prosperity he had announced. That is why every 29 of the month it is customary to eat this type of pasta, leaving some money under the plate in the hope of obtaining economic improvements.

Despite originating in Italy, it has reached countries like Argentina due to large emigration at the time of the war. The classic recipe usually uses wheat flour, so that people with celiac disease cannot consume it. For this reason, in RecetasGratis we invite you to know the gluten-free version. Keep reading and discover with us how to make potato gnocchi with cornstarch without tacc.
