How To Make Vegan Pierogies

So you’re looking to learn how to make vegan pierogies? Well, you’ve come to the right website!

I’m all about veganizing or creating delicious and easy vegan recipes!

I had my Polish friend Dakota come over to help me make sure I was making traditional pierogies for you all! The best part is that not only are they delicious, but you can also freeze the pierogi dough or even the final pierogi themselves and enjoy them later. 

New to pierogies and wondering what they are? Pierogies are stuffed dumplings made with delicious dough and a savoury or sweet filling in the middle.

Whilst many types of pierogi are not vegan, it is easy to make them vegan with just a few simple substitutions. For example, instead of using cheese and butter, we are simply using nutritional yeast and vegan butter (you can also feel free to use vegan cheese!).

Vegan Pierogi Dough

Vegan Pierogi Dough Recipe

This 15 mins recipe for vegan pierogi dough is so easy and makes around 8 servings of pierogies!

You’ll want a large mixing bowl, fine mesh strainer, rolling pin and 3-4 inch cookie cutter or equivalent for making your pierogies.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour + more for surface
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup hot or warm water
  • 1 tbsp oil

Instructions:

  1. Over a large mixing bowl, you want to use a sifter and sift together flour and salt.
  2. Then on a lightly floured surface, pour the sifted flour mixture on the surface like a hill and create a well (hole) in the middle.
  3. Add small amounts of water at a time and combine with your hands by folding over the well and repeating the process.
  4. Once the dough is thoroughly combined, add oil and knead until the mixture isn’t as sticky and somewhat stretchy.
  5. Lightly flour the ball of dough and cut it into 2 or 4 pieces of dough.
  6. If you’ve already prepared your vegan pierogi fillings ahead of time, skip this step. If you haven’t prepared your fillings ahead of time, prepare your fillings next and in meantime cover your dough to prevent drying and let it sit while preparing any fillings you want to add.
  7. Once you are ready to fill, roll out one ball of dough until it is as flat and thin as you can get it. Using a cookie cutter or anything similar, cut out 3-4 inch rounds of the dough. 
  8. Flatten each with your fingers slightly, then add your filling in the middle. Close by folding over the filling and gently press the two sides together with your fingers to close (use a little water to seal the dough, if needed).
  9. Voila! You have your vegan pierogies! Now, bring a pot of water to a boil and boil the pierogies until the pieces float to the top. Then boil for another 1-2 minutes and remove from the water. 
  10. Add vegan butter on a non-stick pan and add boiled pierogi pieces. Cook on each side until golden. 
  11. Serve on their own or add simulated bacon bits, chopped green onions and vegan sour cream on the side.

Vegan Pierogi Fillings

There are many different types of pierogi fillings and one of the most popular and traditional kinds is the potato and cheese pierogi.

Whilst many types of pierogi are not vegan, it is easy to make them vegan with just a few simple substitutions. For example, instead of using cheese and butter, we are simply using nutritional yeast and vegan butter (you can also feel free to use vegan cheese!).


Vegan Cheese Potato Pierogi

Ingredients (around 8 servings): 

  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled & cut into chunks
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter or vegetable oil (vegan butter recommended)

  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp Vegetal seasoning (or salt to taste)
  • Pepper to taste

Optional ingredients: 

  • 1-2 tbsp vegan butter or vegetable oil 
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • Serve with: fresh dill, vegan sour cream

Instructions:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Add salt and potatoes and boil for around 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are soft enough to easily mash.
  3. In the meantime, heat vegan butter on a non-stick pan and cook onion until lightly browned and fragrant. Turn off heat and set aside.
  4. Mash the potatoes then add the onion and vegan butter mixture, along with nutritional yeast and Vegetal seasoning or salt & pepper to taste.
  5. Once you are ready to fill, roll out one ball of pierogi dough (recipe above) until it is as flat and thin as you can get it. Using a cookie cutter or anything similar, cut out 3-4 inch rounds of the dough. 
  6. Flatten each with your fingers slightly, then add your filling in the middle. Close by folding over the filling and gently press the two sides together with your fingers to close (use a little water to seal the dough, if needed).
  7. Once you’ve made the pierogi, bring a pot of water to a boil and boil the pierogi until the pieces float to the top. Then boil for another 1-2 minutes then remove from the water. 
  8. While pierogi are cooking, heat vegan butter on a pan on medium-high heat and cook onions until they start to brown. Remove from the pan. 
  9. On the same pan, cook up the boiled pierogi pieces with the remaining butter until nicely golden on each side. Add the onion mixture back. 
  10. Plate and serve with fresh dill and vegan sour cream.

Vegan Sweet Potato Pierogi

Ingredients (around 8 servings): 

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup canned full-fat coconut milk (the solid/fat portion if possible)
  • pinch of salt

Optional ingredients: 

  • 1-2 tbsp vegan butter or vegetable oil (vegan butter recommended)
  • 1 tbsp sugar (white, brown or coconut)

Instructions:

  1. Poke a few holes in your sweet potato with a fork then microwave in 1-2 minute increments until the sweet potato is soft enough to mash. Alternatively, you can steam, bake or boil your sweet potato to cook it.
  2. Cut sweet potato in half, scoop out the insides with a spoon and add into a small mixing bowl.
  3. Add canned coconut milk (preferably using the solid fat parts, once separated in the can) and salt. Mash the sweet potato while mixing well.

Vegan Mushroom Pierogi

Optional ingredients:

  • Optional: simulated bacon bits (vegan) or vegan bacon (cut into small pieces), chopped green onions, vegan sour cream

Instructions:

  1. Prepare your mushrooms by grating them with a cheese grater into fine pieces.
  2. With clean hands, squeeze out the juice from the sauerkraut to remove most of the moisture. If sauerkraut pieces are too big, you can cut into smaller pieces with a knife.
  3. Heat vegan butter on a large pan and cook onions for a couple of minutes.
  4. Add mushrooms and cook for another few minutes until most of the moisture has evaporated.
  5. Now add in the sauerkraut and mix well. Give this a taste and add salt and pepper as needed.

  7. Flatten each with your fingers slightly, then add your filling in the middle. Close by folding over the filling and gently press the two sides together with your fingers to close (use a little water to seal the dough, if needed).
  8. Once you’ve made the pierogi, bring a pot of water to a boil and boil the pierogi until the pieces float to the top. Then boil for another 1-2 minutes then remove from the water.
