This recipe comes from the Low fat Vegetarian Jewish Cookbook. These are probably the best Knishes I've ever made. I make mine round but you can make them square also. I serve them with Vegan sour cream or Dijon Mustard.

1 1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel and chop the potatoes. Put them in the cold water then cook them in a covered pot for 20 minutes. Drain.
2

Mash cooked potatoes and divide mixture into thirds. Stir 1/3 of the mashed potatoes with sauerkraut mixture. Mix remaining mashed potatoes with turmeric, salt, flour and baking powder to create a dough.
