I am giving Ube a savory spin with this Vegan Savory Ube Pierogies. Using some gyoza wrappers it gets you on the fast track to making these pierogies.
I just realized this is my first ever Ube post and it happens to be a savory one – Vegan Savory Ube Pierogies. Don’t be mad that I made a savory Ube recipe. It’s a potato! Also this recipe is very adaptable to use any left over potato mash you have.
It is super super easy. All I did was mix some mashed ube with vegan cheese and then stuffed it in these gyoza wrappers.
I can get these JSL Twin Dragon Gyoza Wrappers from my local Safeway, but you can also find them at these stores: Albertsons, Shaw’s, Von’s, Stater Bros, Lucky’s, Food Maxx, Fred Meyer, QFC, Cub Foods, Rainbow Foods, Safeway, Associated Stores, Price Rite, Shop Rite, Winco, Price Chopper and Gelson’s.
They are vegan and use minimal ingredients (which is oh so important to me) and they are also extra thick. I did not rip one single wrapper making these Vegan Savory Ube Pierogies.
When you are ready to make them add some olive oil to a fry pan and depending on the size of your pan lay out 4-6 Pierogies. You need to give them some space. Leave them to get crisp on one side and then after 2 minutes drizzle some water in the pan and cover it. This creates some steam and heats up the filling inside. I leave the cover on for about two minutes with the heat turned down to low so that it doesn’t burn.
You can see here that it’s very crispy, but the filling stays nice and moist.
The perfect accompaniment, to these Vegan Savory Ube Pierogies (to me anyway) are some fried red and green. Just slice some up and toss them in a fry pan with some oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook them down on medium heat until they start to look translucent.
For the sauce I made a faux sour cream by some vegan cream cheese with a vegan yogurt drink. With a touch of salt, pepper and garlic powder it’s, just perfect with the onions and the Vegan Savory Ube Pierogies.
I can eat a whole pile of these in one sitting, but if you have more restraint than me, you can freeze the rest of the Vegan Savory Ube Pierogies and make them as needed.
Enjoy these and as I mentioned earlier, feel free to swap out with any left over potato mash you have. If you do make them please tag Rezel Kealoha and JSL Foods on Facebook. You can also find them over on Twitter. Use the hashtags #TwinDragon and #ChefYaki if you do.
