Recipe

Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4 servings

Ingredients

24 pierogies (your favourite brand & flavour)
1 red pepper, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, diced
10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 cup of pickled jalapeños or 1 fresh jalapeño, diced
1 cup shredded kale
1 cup of shredded cheese (substitute vegan cheese, if you wish)
1 tbsp of olive oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°C.
  2. Boil pierogies in water, as directed by the instructions. Chop up the vegetables while the pierogies are cooking. Once they are finished, drain and set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil over medium heat in an oven safe skillet. Add pierogies and cook until sides are crispy, about two minutes each side.
  4. Spread pierogies out in an even layer over the pan, then top with vegetables. Sprinkle cheese all over.
  5. Place skillet in oven and cook until cheese is melted, about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately.
