Homemade Vegan Pirogies



As you may have read in my previous post, I made some vegan homemade pirogies for dinner last night. They were a success and I’ll definitely be making them again. Here is my recipe to make pirogies from scratch: 

Ingredients:
3 Cups Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
3/4 Cup Boiling Water
1/2 Cup Cold Water

Instructions:

Sift flour and salt together in a large bowl.

Mix in boiling water until most of the flour is moistened. 

Let sit for a couple minutes until the flour has cooled off a bit. 

Gradually mix in the cold water.

Knead the dough until smooth. 

Roll out the dough until it is only a couple millimeters thick. *depending on your space, it may be easier to break the dough into smaller portions and roll them separately*

Using a drinking glass or cookie cutter, cut circles out of the dough. 




Add a heaping teaspoon of filling of your choice (I used garlic mashed sweet potatoes). 


Fold the dough in half around the filling and pinch the edges closed with your fingers. 


You can either freeze or cook the pirogies right away. 

To cook: 

Add pirogies to a pot of boiling water. 

Boil for about 4 minutes or until the pirogies start floating to the top. 

Serve as-is, or pan fry the pirogies with some vegan margarine before serving. 

Enjoy!
