Happy National Pierogi Day!

Blogger of the Day: Aimee at The Veg Life

Pierogi are stuffed dumplings traditionally filled with a flavorful potato mix, boiled up, and often crispyfried. Aimee plumps her homemade pierogi with sweet potatoes, then serves them up with a red cabbage apple salad...colorful yumful fall comfort food! If you're in a rush, follow Aimee's suggestion and use wonton wrappers, but the dough version is so much more crazydelish! Aimee has more helpful tips in her Veganpedia like what to stock in your vegan pantry, vegan dairy alternatives to look for and how to make pumpkin pie spice. We're definitely going to try her pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, right after we stuff our faces with pierogi.  ;)

If you're pierogi-curious in Pittsburgh, check out Pierogi Night, a monthly pop-up featuring flavorful pierogi going head to head with rival favorites like falafel, chili dogs, tacos, banh mi, sushi, Korean BBQ, meatball hoagies, pad thai, lasagna, burgers, tamales and pizza and it's all vegan! Their permanent restaurant, "Apteka", is coming soon!  :)

What would you pack in pierogi? Fried, yes or no? If you could open a pop-up restaurant, what radical location would you choose? Which fabulous dishes would you serve?  :)
