Gluten-free Pierogi Recipe

Gluten Free, GF, No gluten, Recipe

For years there have been some foods we just haven’t eaten. Not because we didn’t like them- but,  simply because I didn’t know how to make them safe for our family. This lent I tackled one of my fears and made a family favorite- Gluten-Free (dairy and nightshade free) Pierogi’s. This same recipe is a real gem for ravioli and homemade lasagna roll-ups too. The options are endless- I hope you like it.

  1.  In a small bowl, mix ground flax seeds and warm water together and let sit 10 minutes.

  3.  Add flax seed mixture to flour mixture until all ingredients are incorporated.
