  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 tsp Earth Balance® Buttery Spread
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 tsp parsley flakes
  • 1/4 tsp dill weed

  4. Prepare dough by combining flour, 1 tsp olive oil, and water. Add a little more water if necessary. Knead until smooth.
  5. Take a 1″ piece of dough, and roll it into a thin circle, about 3″ diameter. Put about a Tbs of the potato mixture on the dough circle. Fold one side over so it forms a semi-circle, dampen edge slightly, and seal shut.
