Preparation

For the gnocchi, knead potatoes, egg yolk, flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg into dough and let rest for a bit. Form rolls of dough as thick as your thumb and cut into circa 1 cm pieces. Place in boiling salt water. As soon as the gnocchi float to the top, remove them and plunge them into cold water. For the sauce, peel and cube the beets. Fry the Speck Alto Adige PGI strips in olive oil and add the beet cubes. Deglaze with vegetable stock and thicken with the cream. Rewarm the gnocchi in hot salt water, drain, and add to the sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. Cut the goat cheese into small pieces and add to the sauce. Toss quickly to coat and arrange on plates. Garnish with herbs.
