I personally like to prepare meatless meals on Wednesdays and Fridays for the duration of the Great Lent, as well the whole Holy Week, which is the week before Easter Sunday.
It actually is healthy to give our system a break from the weekly meat consumption, and introduce some vegetarian or seafood dishes instead.
Verenyky, Pierogi, Perogy, Dumplings, no matter what you call them, you will find them on every Eastern European menu.
This time I used Gluten Free Pizza Crust Whole Grain Mix, and the dumplings turned out awesome.
I will list each harvested vegetable individually, and link it to my favorite recipes posted previously, for your cooking convenience and pleasure.

Recently one of my readers inquired about some possibilities of creating varenyky dough from gluten-free flour, as they love these dumplings, but are seriously allergic to wheat.
I took their suggestion as a challenge for myself, and today I used White Rice flour to make the dough, and mashed Sweet Potatoes filling.
This recipe has been in our family since at least the late 18oos. My great-grandmother was making these sauerkraut filled pyrizhky, she called “Kapusnyachky”,
