1 hr 30 min 10 servings
Vegetable Starchy

ingredients

  • ½ ounce fresh yeast (about 2½ tsp active dry yeast)
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • pinch of salt
  • 7 ounces whole meal flour
  • approximately 7 ounces plain flour
  • 1¼ ounces butter, softened

Filling:

  • 5¼ ounces smoked salmon
  • 5¼ ounces Castello® Double Crème Blue
  • 5¼ ounces baby spinach
  • ⅓ ounce butter
  • salt
  • pepper
  • a little grated nutmeg

preparation

1. Melt the butter over low heat. Dissolve the yeast in the water and add the butter. Add the salt and whole grain flour. Stir well, then add regular flour until the dough is no longer sticky.

2. Knead for approx. 5 minutes then let rise on the tabletop until around double in size.

3. Rinse the spinach and put in a pan with butter. Saute until wilted. Pour off any excess liquid. Add the Double Crème Blue cheese in cubes and stir until it is worked into the spinach. It’s okay if there are little lumps of cheese left.

4. Finally, cut the salmon into little pieces and add to the spinach mixture. Season to taste with salt, pepper and grated nutmeg. Let the mixture cool slightly.

5. Roll out the dough thinly and cut into circles with a diameter of approx. 16 inches. Place a spoonful of filling in the circle and fold the dough over. Fold up the edges so they don’t open during baking.

6. Bake the pierogis at 350°F for about 12 minutes. Can be enjoyed hot, warm or cold.
