So I guess I finally became a chef! I never would have imagined that I could make perogies. That's a dish for only the professionals right? Well I thought so. I was wrong. Anyone can do it, as long as you have the time.
I was very determined to try to make perogies. That's how much I need them back in my life. I thought that if there was anything I was going to mess up on, this was it. No one wants to fail at anything...but PEROGIES? Yikes! But I did it! First I made the dough, then I kneaded it, then came the rolling and the stuffing, then I had to boil them and then fry them, and then finally EAT THEM! My husband ate 10 of them before I even sat down. I guess someone liked them!
It's hard finding food, like perogies, when you only eat healthy food. Udi's has a great line of gluten-free products but I've never seen perogies before. I actually saw gluten-free perogies at a store but they had tons of sugar and dairy. Just because it says "gluten-free" or "vegan" doesn't mean it's healthy at all. I guess if I wanted them I had to make my own. I googled gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan perogies and came across tons of awesome recipes, but the one I liked most was from Green Vegan Living.com. I modified it a bit because the original recipe was too dry and the perogies cracked a lot. So I added oat flour and more water to the recipe. I made my own filling too. Check it out below.
While looking through these pictures I just wanted to let you know that I doubled the recipe to freeze the extras. So when you see extra balls of dough, that is why.
