Cooking with Sake: Pumpkin Gnocchi

Fun to make as well! When you think of making gnocchi, many people will imagine using potato and flour. However, in this recipe, we’ll use pumpkin! Pumpkin is full of nutrients and great for people who are lacking vitamin A, C, and E in their diet. If you add sake as a seasoning, you can increase the flavor! Enjoy the subtly sweet flavor and plump texture of the pumpkin.
