1. Beet Gnocchi 
F&W Best New Chef Jenn Louis found these intense beet gnocchi in northwestern Italy. They are sweet and earthy, and so delicious they barely need a sauce.

2. Spinach Gnocchi 
These spinach gnocchi are more intensely flavorful than the traditional ricotta kind.

3. Carrot-Potato Gnocchi 
Pureed carrots give these gnocchi a subtle sweetness and gorgeous tangerine color.

4. Lentil Gnocchi 
These earthy lentil gnocchi are served in a rich foie gras soup.

5. Taro Gnocchi 
Vibrantly purple, this gnocchi is based on a Malay specialty called Abacus Seeds, which is made with a purple yam–and–sticky rice flour dough.
