Warm lecithin by placing the bottle in simmering water on the stove till
lecithin is runny. Stir into the flours & salt & set aside.

Blend the vinegar, tofu & water till smooth. Combine with the flours
handling till the dough has a medium stiff consistency. Roll out dough on a
floured board forming a 21" x 6" rectangle 3/16" thick. Cut into 8 equal
pieces about 3" x 3" each. (Rolling the dough a littel thinner may yield
another 3 pieces). Place about 1 1/2 tb filling on each piece. Wet the
edges of the dough. Stretch one corner of the dough to meet the opposite
corner, forming a triangle & press together, sealing the pierogi.

Bring water to a simmer in a large pot. Drop each pierogi carefully into
the water & cook in the simmering water till the pierogi rises to the
surface. Remove & drain. They can be sealed in a plastic wrap & kept in the
fridge or frozen at this point.

To serve the pierogi, saute in oil until lightly browned. Serve with vegan
sour cream.

they are smooth. This should yield 4 c packed potatoes. Add yeast, salt &
pepper & mix well.

Saute onions in oil till translucent. Blend tofu till smooth. Stir onions

CABBAGE GARBANZO FILLING: Heat oil in a large skillet. Add cabbage, onions
& seasonings. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add water & flour &
cook till thickened. If necessary, add more flour a tb at a time. This
filling should keep in the fridge for a week.
