Comforting Knishes by

Category: Appetizers

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.



cup mashed potatoes

1 Tbsp. oil

1 tsp. salt

3 cups unbleached white flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 cup cold water


1 cup chopped onions

2 Tbsp. oil

1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes

1 1/2 cups mashed tofu

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. black pepper



To make the dough, beat together 1 cup mashed potatoes, 1 Tbsp. oil, and 1 tsp. 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, sautè the onions in 2 Tbsp. oil until transparent. Mix together with the rest of the filling ingredients. Cut the dough into 4 sections, then roll each section as thin as possible (about 1/16-inch thick). Cut into 5 x 6-inch rectangles. Place 2 or 3 Tbsp. 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 at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes, or until golden. Serve with horseradish or mustard.

Oooh, I haven't had any knishes since I was nine years old. I will need to make this as soon as I acquire a potato.
