Vegan Knishes

Recipe by Chef Joey Z.
READY IN: 1hr 5mins
YIELD: 16 knishes




  • Place a piece of parchment paper on a large cookie sheet. Spray a little oil on the parchment. Set aside.
  • Prepare 2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes.
  • DOUGH.
  • Beat together 1 cup of the mashed potatoes, the 1 tablespoons of oil and the salt. Add the flour, and baking powder, mix well.
  • Mix in the water and knead into a smooth dough. I used my mix master to mix this and it worked great. The dough was wonderfully soft.
  • Let the dough rest in a bowl covered with a damp cloth for about 1/2 hour.
  • Saute the onions in the tablespoons of oil until transparent. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. I mixed it with the mix master just 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 the parchment covered baking tray with the pinched side down.
  • Brush the top with soy creamer if desired.
  • Set the oven to 350'F and bake for 25 minutes until golden brown. Serve with horseradish or mustard.
  • Bon Appetit.
