Pierogies with Sautéed Cabbage & Mushrooms

Crispy pierogies bake to a golden brown in the oven while you make the delicious sautéed veggie mixture to serve on the side.

Prep Time:  10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 12 oz package potato and cheese pierogies (12 pierogies)
  • Butter flavored cooking spray
  • 2 ½ tsp salt, divided
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups red onion, thinly sliced (2 large)
  • 1 8oz package cremini mushrooms, sliced (~3 cups)
  • 3 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 tsp caraway seed
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 TB + 1 tsp sour cream
  • 2 TB minced fresh parsley

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment and arrange pierogies on sheet. Spray tops with butter-flavored cooking spray and season with 1 tsp salt. Bake for 18 minutes, flipping half-way through for even browning. 

While pierogies bake, heat oil in a large non-stick sauté pan. Add onions and mushrooms and cook, stirring often, for approximately 10 minutes or until mushrooms have browned and onions are softened. Add cabbage, caraway, and pepper and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until cabbage has wilted. Set aside and keep warm. When pierogies are done serve with sautéed veggies. Garnish each dish with 1 tsp sour cream and parsley.

Notes

If you prefer your pierogies soft, just boil them for 8 minutes while the veggies are cooking. This method gets dinner on the table quicker too!
