    Mirj's Note:

    Healthy Jewish comfort food is usually an oxymoron. This is actually healthy for you, and delicious!

      nice recipe for great jewish comfort food. thanks! i doubled the onions and added scallions -- will probably add some garlic next time. also, i brushed the knishes with a little olive oil and cooked them at 375F for about 35 minutes, which is when they started browning.

      These were quite bland, nice texture though. They need either a very tasty sauce or something in the filling. The dough I really enjoyed, Thanks Mirjam. I'll work with this recipe to get it to my own tastes, as it is a sneaky way to get people to eat tofu! UPDATE: Right, just to add a note- my brother can't stop eating these. He loves them.
