Cauliflower Mash Pierogi 🥟 🥟🥟 Dumpling making for me is like doing an arts n crafts project with one big BONUS – you get to eat it when you’re finished 🙌🏼My 10 year old daughter & I have been baking & cooking loads during this crazy & unprecedented time. So we had our own dumpling making party. This recipe swaps the traditional potato filling for a creamy cauliflower mash. Hope you enjoy it 💚What you need: Dough: 3 cups flour, 3/4cup warm water, 1 1/2 tbl olive oil, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/8 turmeric (optional), Filling: 1 large head of cauliflower chopped into florets, 2 tbl melted butter, 2 garlic cloves minced, 2 green onions finely chopped, 1/4 cup non dairy sour cream, 2 tbl nutritional yeast, salt & pepper to taste
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 a kitchen towel,rest dough 1/2 hr
2️⃣Steam Cauliflower florets 25-30 min until very tender, after steaming, let cool, & dry with kitchen towel
3️⃣In a food processor, purée cauliflower with the rest of the ingredients, season to taste.
4️⃣To make the Pierogi: slice dough in thirds, wrap other 2/3 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 tbl of filling on each circle. Lightly dampen edges of 1/2 wrapper with water. Fold in a half moon & seal by pressing with fingertips. Place on parchment paper dusted with flour, cover with damp towel. Repeat using the rest of dough.
6️⃣Using a nonstick pan, cooking in batches, using desired amount of butter on med. Cook 3-4 min on each side or until crisp. I served mine sour cream & fresh herbs. Enjoy💚
