Yes, you read that right. Tomorrow is my birthday, and I like to celebrate in style.
So, I have synced up with (Jessy and Kittee), both of whom I adore and admire, to bring you a triple dose of gluten-free vegan pierogi madness! Instead of just one dose of pierogi, you get a three way! Are you excited yet?
Well, brace yourself, because this is gonna be one humdinger of a pierogi overload.
Jessy and I both grew up on these Polish dumplings, and ever since we first went gluten free- we had been yearning for their stuffed goodness to dance back into our lives. Kittee, well, she is simply a master of all things food. Period.
So, we all three decided to team up and do a simultaneous gluten free-vegan pierogi post for VeganMoFo!
This is more of a how-to, rather than a recipe. But I would like to share my basic process of creating a dish that has served my family happily for many years. There are so many variations on pierogi… but I find this version to be pretty fool-proof. And, it’s really the only kind I have ever known since I was a wee little thing. (My mother and father were born and raised in West Virginia–tis why I named them “Appalachian Pierogi”) When my mother would make her version of pierogies- the entire family would gather like vultures. In a way, they still do. There are a few steps… but if you get your timing down, they are not at all overwhelming to make. In fact, they are pretty fun!
And, for all of you gluten free folks- try this gluten free pierogi recipe I created : (updated)
