Print this Recipe    Pierogies

1 cup unbleached flour
1/4 cup water
1 tsp olive oil
3 medium potatoes
1 medium onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp parsley flakes
1/2 tsp soy margarine
1/4-1/2 cup non-dairy milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Cut potatoes into chunks and boil until tender. Drain. Saute onions
in water until translucent. Whip potatoes with garlic, parsley,
margarine, milk, salt, and pepper. Stir in onions. Set aside.

Prepare dough by combining flour, water, and olive oil. Knead until
smooth, adding very small amounts (1/8 tsp) of water if necessary.

Cut off a strawberry-size piece of dough and roll it into a circle.
The dough should then be rolled quite thin....just thick enough
that it does not tear too easily. The standard size of pierogies
is about a 3-inch diameter. Put a tablespoon or so of the potato
mixture on the dough circle (more of less, depending on the size),
fold one side over so it is a semi-circle, and seal shut. You may
need some water if the dough has begun to dry out. Caution: Do
not put uncooked pierogies on a paper plate. They will stick. Use
a regular plate or cookie sheet.

After all the pierogies have been made, you can either freeze them,
refrigerate them for a few days, or go ahead and cook them.

To cook: Boil pierogies in water for a few minutes. They cook
quickly. Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a frying pan. Brown
pierogies on each side.

You can top pierogies in a variety of ways: tofu sour cream, tomato
sauce, salsa, ketchup, etc. Of course, you can also eat them plain.
Also, the ingredients in the potato filling can be varied.
