Delicious Gluten Free Vegetable Pierogis

July 29, 2019

Cooking gluten-free, no matter how long you have been doing it, is always difficult. You need the perfect ingredients that will not cause your creation to flop but don’t want to spend $15 dollars on a bag of almond flour. This is exactly what I had in mind when creating this and all of my recipes; not spending a lot of money but having your food taste delicious.

This homemade pierogi recipe is a family favorite that is perfect for those nights when you want to whip up something quick but still want a nutritious meal.



  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup corn starch -potato starch also works
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 1/2 white onion chopped
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped lettuce
  • 2 large russet potatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sprinkle of cheddar cheese (optional)


  1. Combine all the ingredients for the dough in a mixing bowl. Add more rice flour or corn starch if needed. Combine until a dough forms then place in the fridge for 1/2 hour to firm.
  2. Filling: skin and boil the potatoes. Once they are done chop them up into 1/4 inch square pieces
  3. Add the chopped white onion, shredded carrots, chopped lettuce, potatoes and salt + pepper into a bowl and combine.
  4. Take the dough out of the fridge and roll it out. Then take a circular cookie cutter or glass cup, cut out circles.
  5. Place 1/2 tbsp of your filling into each circle, fold the circle in half and crimp the edges. Repeat until all of your mixture is used up.
  6. To warm, take a frying pan and place 1/2 cup water with 1 tbsp canola oil into it and place your pierogis flat side down into it, cover with a tight lid and let cook on medium-high heat for 11 minutes or until the flat side becomes lightly browned and crispy.
  7. Enjoy 🙂
