Potato Knishes

2 1/2 cup plain mashed potatoes
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup leafy greens (spinach, kale, etc.)
1/2 package of firm tofu
2 tablespoons parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Prepare 2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes.

Mix together 1 cup of the mashed potatoes, the 1 tablespoons of oil and 1 teaspoon of salt. Add the 3 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and mix well. Mix in the water and knead into a smooth dough. Let the dough rest in a bowl covered with a damp cloth or paper towel for about 1/2 hour.

Set the oven to 350 F.

Sauté the onions and leafy greens in 2 tablespoons of oil. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until combined. Cut the dough into 4 sections and roll each section out thin. Cut the circle into 4 more pieces and put 1-2 tablespoons of the filling in each. Gather up the edges and join in the middle and pinch together so the filling doesn’t leak out.

Put the knish on lightly greased baking tray with the pinched side down. Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.

Serve with Tofutti Sour Cream or Applesauce.

  1. Wow, these take me back. When I was a kid, we had friends from NY who would make these for us. I remember them as being one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. I’m going to have to try these–thanks!
