Crispy Pierogi stuffed with Cauliflower Mash: 🥟 🥟🥟 It’s been all about cauliflower in my cooking recently. I just can’t get enough. How about you? So for this recipe I decided to swap the traditional potato filling in a Pierogi with a simple cauliflower mash. It turned out really tasty. Hope you enjoy it 💚What you need: Dough: 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup warm water, 1 tbl olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 turmeric (optional), Filling: 1 1/2 lbs of frozen cauliflower rice, 2 tbl melted butter, 1 tsp salt,1/4 pepper, 1/4 cup non dairy sour cream
1️⃣Using a food processor combine the flour, salt, turmeric. Slowly add oil & water, after a minute or so it will form a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, rest dough 1/2 hr
2️⃣Steam Cauliflower rice till warm, after steaming drain any extra water in a strainer/colander
3️⃣Place cauli in a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients, combine by mashing or using an immersion blender, season to taste.
4️⃣Time to make the Pierogi: slice dough in 1/2, wrap other 1/2 with plastic wrap. Sprinkle flour on work surface. Roll out dough, thin enough so you can see the shadow of your hand underneath
5️⃣Using a circular 3 in cutter or narrow glass press cutter into dough to make wrappers. Place 1/2 tbl of filling in the center of each circle. Dampen edges of wrapper with water. Fold in a half moon & seal by pressing with fingertips.Place on parchment paper, cover with damp towel. Repeat this step with other 1/2 of dough
7️⃣ On stovetop using a nonstick pan, cooking in batches, using 1 tbl oil on med/high. Cook 3-4 min on each side or until crisp. I served mine with sour cream and a good dose of veggies. Happy Wednesday IG friends 💚
