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.

    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for replying, I have not yet tried Cbt, I did meet with a psychologist for 2 months when I was really in the deepest depths of depression but it didn't really help, I couldn't concentrate at all during our sessions my anxiety and negative self talk was trough the roof at the time, and after loosing my job I could no longer afford the $150 sessions, I don't have medical insurance as I am currently waiting on my permanent residence visa to come tru ( originally from Northern Ireland) I might look into some Cbt sessions to see if they help, I'm willing to try anything 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Pretty sure that's what I had for a while, adrenal fatigue.  I started getting some selenium in my diet to fix it.  It made a big difference.  Brazil nuts are great for selenium, just don't overdo them because selenium isn't eliminated quickly.  It can build up to toxic levels if overdone.
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      I definitely had more energy, I was virtually bedridden beforehand, but it also felt like something of a serotonin boost, and, bizarre as it sounds, my senses seemed heightened. I felt great and I didn't know why. 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      i am wondering if those who get that initial "rush" of a day or twos relief of symptoms are "flying" on adrenaline?  wonder about adrenal fatigue?  not sure that is considered a real thing in western medicine... just a thought.  and you return of sym suggest a glutening.  Anything new in the diet?  even a new package of an already  checked product?  soap and shampoo need to be checked, or used very carefully.  is wife still eating gluten?  if so make sure sh is not bringing it to you.  kisses are nice, but make sure she brushes first, lol skipping products that are "made in shared buildings"  for at least a while. take the B12 on an empty stomache

      Excellent. The chances are your body won't absorb some of this however so get as many good B sources in your diet as possible in addition. Get some sunshine as well, I know it does rain sometimes in Melbourne but believe me on that score you do a lot better than the poms.   Try and note these positive things, it's so easy when you're down to forget them. There will be more to come. Imagine yourself climbing a mountain. There are points at which you have to travel laterally or even down in order to follow the right path but your overall trajectory is upwards. You're actually lucky to have found it now at 28 with so much time ahead for healing and enjoying the fruits of it.  For me the gluten reaction is the initial cause of the depression but once that's removed it doesn't automatically lift like magic. Whilst the brain fog lifted soon on gluten-free diet, (there was a physical perceptible feeling in my head whilst I had that, a kind of thickness sort of like wearing a diving mask all the time that distances you from the world), the longer term depression isn't so easily shifted. I think this is because there are negative pathways that have been reinforced over many years. That's what living in a constant state of anxiety can do. It wrecks your self esteem which isn't magically repaired as your diet changes, sadly! As my physical symptoms lifted but I still felt depression, if on a different level, I realised I'd have to heal my mind as well as my gut. So I'm currently seeing a counsellor and it is helping. Not there yet though Yes I also get this and the mental side for me is also by far the worst side of it. I used to think I may die every time I got the chest pains but that wasn't as bad as feeling like shit 24/7 or having to fake a good time when feeling awful inside.  The single best thing about realising my gluten problem was that it explained that the underlying cause of that depression and anxiety was physical, not a defect of character, just some bad luck in the makeup of my gut and immune system. Hope that knowledge helps you also, when the anxiety strikes recognise it for what it is. A misdirected fight or flight response to an internal attack on your body.  Have a look at some cognitive behavioural therapy techniqes for challenging negative thoughts, that may be helpful? CBT has a very good success rate here in UK, better than anti depressants or talking therapy I think and it focuses on the practical,.  As you realise there's a load of bulls**t in society about how we view and discuss mental health. Don't buy into it. A lot of 'strong' people out there are simply bottling up their suffering through misguided pride. If people stigmatise you they're doing you the favour of letting you know they're not worth bothering with.  I got a lot of support on here when I was in your position and I'm sure you will too. I wish you the best of luck and I'm sure you'll be seeing more improvements in the weeks and months to come.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
