knishVegan Knish

A knish is a fabulous little dish, that can be made vegan. When done vegan these little bites of heaven are delicious. My boys will even eat these and want more. So these are awesome and you can mix and match veggies as you like. Stretch likes it with spinach and salsa.




2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes
3 Tbsp. oil
2 tsp. salt
3 cups unbleached white flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup chopped onions
1 1/2 cups mashed tofu
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper


Preheat the oven to 350°F. To make the dough, beat together 1 cup of the mashed potatoes, 1 tablespoonful of the oil, and 1 teaspoonful of the salt. Add the flour and baking powder and mix well. Mix in the water and knead into a smooth dough. Let rest on a board, covered with a cloth, for 1/2 hour. To make the filling, sauté the onions in the remaining oil until transparent. Add the tofu, parsley, garlic powder, and pepper and mix well. Cut the dough into 4 sections, then roll each as thin as possible (about 1/16-inch thick). Cut into 5-inch-by-6-inch rectangles. Place 2 or 3 tablespoonfuls of the filling in the middle of each rectangle. Fold the sides in first, then the ends. Place folded side down on an oiled cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden. Serve with horseradish or mustard.
