gluten-free Pyrogys (Perogies)
0

8 posts in this topic

I recently saw someone posting about finding a gluten-free perogy recipe so I thought I'd post my aunt's recipe here. I haven't tried it yet but it has been Ukranian approved! Below is her dough recipe. You can fill with cheddar and potato or saurkraut or whatever you fancy.

Pyrogys Dough (Gluten Free)

( I batch dough makes 30 depending on thickness and size)\

(2nd number is for double recipe or 60 )( full soup bowl of potatos)

¾ cup brown rice flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill as quite fine grind)

1 ½ cup

¼ cup sweet rice flour (made from glutinous rice so stickier)

½ cup

½ cup tapioca starch

1 cup

¼ cup potato starch

½ cup

½ tsp salt

1 tsp

½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp

1 tsp xanthum gum

2 tsp

½ cup water

Less than 1 cup

1 egg

2 eggs

2 tsp oil

4 tsp oil

Mix wet ingredients together, then add dry. Knead for 2 minutes activating the xanthum gum.

Let sit for 15 to 30 minutes, then knead again for a bit until nice and elastic. No gluten is formed so dough will not be tough when cooked.

Break into 2 or 3 lumps to roll out, covering rest as it will begin to dry.

Roll out with mixture of rice flour and cornstarch, being careful to move around and flour as it may stick easily to counter. Also lightly flour rolling pin.

Edges may begin to crack but are easy to patch.

(Extra flour on dough will require that you wet edges with water to get them to stick. Keep a cup of water nearby, dipping finger in to run across edge of dough.)

Cut into squares, having filling ready to go and pans covered with tea towels to lay finished pyrogys on as well to cover when made. Remix extra dough as it does not get tough, but cover to keep soft.

When filling with potato, do not over fill as this dough will not stretch. It may develop light cracks so we try to push it back together.

Boil soon after making as they will dry out. They take 4 to 5 minutes to be cooked as the rice flour takes more time to get soft. These pyrogys do not seem to explode when cooked.

Taste good served with butter fried onions.

I love perogies and have only had gluten-free ones a few times. My favourite filling is potatoes and lots of Cheddar, boiled and fried with caramelized onions.

Thanks for posting this! This looks like a great version. :)

Awesome recipe but if I have an AP gluten-free Flour blend, would I just use that and the ingredients from the eggs down? Or do you suggest adding the gum?

I am new to Celiac and cooking in general so I have no idea. the last time I tried to make perogies they were like rice crackers - crip, hard and shattery when you bit into them.

Thanks

I missed perogies so much I made what I called a perogie casserole... mashed potatoes w/ lots of flavor and cheese and pasta mixed in... more cheese on top and bake. It was to die for... and something I only allow myself on RARE occasions cause I'll eat the whole thing at one sitting!!

LOL it was too crispy for that even.  It was more like a dried out taco.  One bite and it disintegartes into shards.

    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc. 
    • I agree with all the advice you have been given.  It is excellent!   I just want to add that things will get better.  There is a huge grieving process to go through.  Do not fight it.  You have a right to grieve as your health and lifestyle will change, but you will adapt!  Exercise gently until you feel a bit better.  There is plenty of time to exercise hard later.  Taken this advice from a gal who just rode 40 miles (no biggie you say) this morning  on her bike through the Santa Ana winds (better known as the Devil's winds!).  But I am three years into my recovery.  I took it easy the first six months because I was anemic.  I teach few exercise classes, bike, swim and run and I am in my 50's.   The SCD website?  It can scare the (bleep) out of you.  There was one point that I took from the site and that was to stick to whole nourishing foods.  No rocket science -- just common sense.    
    • Thanks for the replies so far everyone, much appreciated Great, another doctor gets it wrong, how many more times can they make a mess of this diagnosis process?! Bloating had gone down a bit in these first few days of cutting the gluten so I guess expect that to come back. It's one way to have a farewell tour of the gluten foods I guess - if a little or a lot makes no difference may as well go all-in... The doctors didn't diagnose this at all, Google did. If I trusted in the health professionals I'd be blaming the symptoms all on stress and having counselling for it whilst the fire raged on inside me due to a clinical condition they'd missed. Just glad one of doctors agreed to run the test on second time of asking to keep me quiet as much as anything. Believe me I've read that newbie thread multiple times, as well as numerous others around the web. Been doing nothing but since Tuesday when the blood test results came back and each time I go into the comments sections a little bit more of me gives up inside. Seems so many don't ever heal and so many associated complications too. The reality looks bleak apart from a lucky few it seems. In the nicest possible way the vegetarian choice is non-negotiable, it's a core part of what I believe and the thought of eating any form of animal \ fish flesh would make me physically sick (sorry meat eaters) so will have to find some way around it, how I don't know yet. Perhaps lots of this... http://www.pulsin.co.uk/pea-protein-isolate.html The cooking bit is a concern as it's something none of us do well at home, adds to the feeling of being completely lost right now. I kick myself for the decision that lead to the stress as I could've avoided all this. The only thing I can cling onto there is that I was having some pains in the side before that time which I blamed on a muscle strain... maybe that was the early stages, in which case I could feel a bit better knowing it had just come on gradually. With the biopsy and gluten from what I read the villi take a long time to heal up so they'd still see that. With the blood test result as definitive as it was surely the disease is pretty much confirmed? How can it heal enough for non eating gluten to throw a biopsy result yet on the flip side take over a year to heal (that sounds like the best case scenario time-wise from what I've read). Not suggesting anyone is wrong for one second but need to understand how that works with what's going on inside to make any sense of this situation.
