Gnocchi for Potato Allergies?

I was diagnosed with a severe allergy to potatoes about six months ago. I've done without french fries, I've eschewed pierogi, even the good Jewish girl in me has broken off from latkes. What I can't stand is losing out on gnocchi. Anyone have any "gnocchi" recipes that don't use potatoes--eg: squash, etc.? If so, please spill.

  1. You may want to try Parisian gnocchi. Here's a recipe:

      If you scroll down to the fourth photo there's a potato-free gnocchi. I've never tried this (I'm gluten-free), just googled.

          There's also a great recipe for Zuni Cafe's ricotta gnocchi. So sorry about your potato allergy. That's rough.

      2. Jerusalem Artichokes can sub for spuds in many ways. Out of season now (I think) but something that might fix your starch needs as you related.

        1. Ricotta makes lovely gnocchi. I've used Molly Katzen's recipe but don't have it handy. I'm sure you could find various recipes through google.

            Second this. I've used the Suzanne Goin's recipe from Sunday Suppers, and I find it positively addicting.


          2. Maybe you can try taro root for the potatoes
