Vegan Piroshki With Cheese

Vegan Piroshki With Cheese Recipe

By Earth of Maria

🔪Prep Time: 30 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 20 mins


2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup soy yoghurt

1/4 cup olive oil

1 1/2 cups vegan cheese

1 cup chopped dill

1/4 cup soy yoghurt

3 cloves garlic

olive oil, to fry


1Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Then, add the soy yoghurt and olive oil, and stir together once more until thoroughly combined. Now knead the dough for around 2-3 minutes, before covering and setting aside for 20-25 minutes.

2Make the filling: add the grated vegan cheese, dill, soy yoghurt, and garlic to a mixing bowl, stirring together thoroughly.

3Transfer the dough to a large floured surface, then roll it out into a sausage shape. Divide into 9-10 even segments.

4Roll each segment into a ball, add a little bit more flour to your work surface, and roll out each ball into a thin circle, around 1/8 inch in thickness. Continue flipping and adding a pinch more flour while rolling out to make sure that it doesn't begin to stick to the rolling pin.

5Add around 2-3 tbsp of the filling to one of the edges of the circle. Flip it over and pinch together the edges. Then, proceed to braid the edge to achieve the classic shape of the pirozhok.

6TO FRY: Heat a thin layer of olive oil in a frying pan. Transfer the piroshki to the frying pan, making sure not to overcrowd. Fry them for around 5-6 minutes on one side, then flip and fry for a further 3-4 minutes, until crispy and golden brown.

7TO BAKE: Make sure that the oven is preheated to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Lay the piroshki on the parchment paper, and bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping half way through.
