Polska Foods Vegan Mushroom Cabbage Pierogi Review + Giveaway (Closed)

19th March 2014

Vegan Mushroom Cabbage Pierogi

I was raised on Chinese dumplings (called 餃子 , jiaozi or gyoza in Japan) and in recent years I have come to love sauerkraut, so when I received Polska Foods Vegan Mushroom Cabbage Pierogi with Fresh Sauerkraut & Caramelized Onions, it was like a perfect marriage for my palate. While only of their five varieties is vegan, these traditional pierogi from Polska Foods are a delicious, versatile and a convenient option from the freezer. Using a family recipe from Lubiechowa, Poland, Polska Foods combines hearty old world flavors with healthy, certified organic and vegan ingredients including unbleached and non-GMO wheat flour and without any preservatives or additives.

the verdict

Following the one of the two suggested cooking methods, the pierogi only take around 3 minutes to cook on each side until golden brown.  With the tangy sauerkraut filling and thicker dough, these pierogi are indeed different from Asian dumplings.  This was my first time to try pierogi and I love that they are hearty and packed full of flavor – real comfort food.  I prefer to pan fry them for added texture, and this way they are delicious served up all on their own.  Available in the freezer aisle, the bright packaging is easy to read and open.   I would love it if Polska Foods offered more vegan varieties, perhaps a mince or a cheesy sauce filling, regardless whether they expand their vegan pierogi selection, the original vegan Mushroom Cabbage Pierogi variety is fabulously delicious.
