Method

1. Make the gnocchi first by roasting the pumpkin & potato at 160 deg C for 45 minutes till cooked
2. Working quickly while it is hot, rice / mash the pumpkin and potato, and mix the flour, salt and nutmeg powder in a stand mixer. Do not overwork the dough like bread, just make sure everything is mixed in. It will be sticky, so do not use more flour as it will make the gnocchi hard. A light touch is key.
3. Transfer the gnocchi dough onto parchment paper or cling wrap, and set aside to cool.
4. Roll the dough to a long strip and cut to size of an inch by half an inch.
5. Put the rolled dumpling into the freezer for easier handling while boiling a pot of water.
6. When the gnocchi pieces have slightly firmed up in freezer and easier to handle, drop it into the boiling water.
7. Once the gnocchi pieces float, strain it out and set aside on an oiled tray or bowl so they will not stick together.
8. Heat a pan on medium heat with brown butter and drop in the gnocchi.
9. Once the gnocchi start crisping on one side, turn the gnocchi over and drop in fresh butter and sage.
10. Once both sides are crisp, ladle in the stock and let it braise for a good minute. Put in the sugar snap peas and turnip.
11. The starch from the gnocchi will start thickening the sauce, at that point put in both vinegars and season to taste with salt and pepper
12. Stir in the kale and turn off the fire. Pour in the lemon juice.
13. Toss and stir to make sure the kale is slightly wilted & sauces are emulsified properly.
14. Scoop in into a serving bowl. Garnish with the rice puff mix & grated pecorino romano cheese.
15. For a kick of heat, sprinkle a pinch of Japanese chill powder as preferred.
