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.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
