gnocchi - is there a substitute for standard flour?

foreverhungry | Jan 8, 2013 01:56 PM

So Ms. FH and I enjoy gnocchi. Lately we've been making the spinach gnocchi from Marc Vetri's namesake restaurant, who's recipe is in his cookbook. The recipe is quite involved, and has a few odd steps, but the gnocchi are fantastic. So now I'm wondering if there's a way to replace the regular flour with a non-wheat based flour. Maybe I'm getting caught up in this cut-out-the-wheat nonsense, but I could see these gnocchi as being a staple for our meals as the main starch portion, and because it's loaded with spinach, I feel good about that. It would be nice to go the extra step and get rid of the wheat. Can someone recommend a flour substitute that works well in gnocchi? Thanks.
