  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups unbleached 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


Prepare 2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes. To make the dough, beat together 1 cup of the mashed potatoes, the 1 tbsp oil and the 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, sautée the onions in the 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 5×6 inch rectangles. Place 2 or 3 tbsp of 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 350F for 25 minutes, or until golden. Serve with horseradish or mustard.
