These were the best pierorgi we’ve ever had. The combination was great, and they are really easy to make.

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons oil (for this recipe I used truffle oil)

1/3 cup water

For the Sauce:

 

250 grams (1 pkg.) mushrooms, sliced

1 onion, chopped

180 grams spicy tofu pieces

1/4 cup tamari

1/4 cup water

2 tsp, corn starch

dash Italian herbs

salt and pepper to taste

a few minced chives as optional garnish

    Step 1 Prepare the sauce by sauteing the onion in a bit of oil in a frying pan.

    Step 2 Add the sliced mushrooms and saute until the mushrooms are soft.

    Step 3 Add the tofu pieces.

    Step 4 Mix the tamari with the corn starch and add 1/4 cup of water.

    Step 5 Add the tamari sauce to the frying pan, and stir until the sauce becomes thickened and clear.

 

Directions

    Step 1 Pinching off pieces of dough, roll each to be about the size of a walnut or ping pong ball.

    Step 2 Flatten each “ping pong ball” on a floured surface.

    Step 3 Using a rolling pin, roll each out into a circle.

    Step 4 Fill each circle with a small portion of the sauerkraut and fold in half

    Step 5 Gently seal the edge using a fork. (I used an empanada cutter or form)

    Step 6 Using a rolling pin, roll each out into a circle.

    Step 7 Cook the pierogi in boiling salty water for 3-5 minutes until they float on top.

    Step 8 Serve the pierogi with the mushroom sauce and a few minced chives.

Notes:

I do recommend using an empanada form, it really makes it quicker and easier.
