Sweet Potato Dumplings (Zemiakove Sulance)
on Tuesday, April 27th, 2010 | 3 Comments
Over the weekend I decided to make one of typical Slovak dishes called Zemiakove Sulance (Potato Dumplings/Gnocchi).
This dish is very popular in Slovakia and despite of being a “sweet” dish it is served as a meatless dinner or lunch usually on Fridays.
I don’t make Sweet Potato Dumplings often because it is quite time and labor consuming. It’s very easy to make, but time consuming.
When I announced that I am thinking of making Sweet Potato Dumplings my kids were happy as clams.
I had no choice , but to bite the bullet and make dumplings.
You can serve Sweet Potato Dumplings (Zemiakove Sulance) few different ways. I usually make two kinds.
Poppy Seeds for me and Walnuts for the rest of the gang. Sometimes I feel like a rebel and I mix them together….yes I like to live dangerously.
