Knedle with plums is a classic polish dish. It can be compared to sweet dumplings that are filled with plums and usually served with sour cream or yoghurt. These knedle are a healthier version of the classic ones. They are vegan, gluten free, sugar free and oil free.
This dish brings me back to my childhood memories, when I used to watch my grandma make these knedle in t he kitchen. It felt like it took forever before they were ready, just because it was one of my favorite dishes and I had little patience. Since I only visited my grandparent during summer vacation I only ate these knedles once a year, so it was like Christmas served on a plate! So now I wanted to make them on my own, but with a vegan and healthier version.
Ingredients for these Knedle with Plums:
- Oat flour
- Apple sauce
Polish Knedle with Plums (Vegan, Gluten Free, Sugar Free)
- 10 (350 g) medium sized Potatoes cooked, cooled and peeled
- 1 1/2 dl Oat flour
- 1 dl Apple sauce
- 12-14 or 7-8 Plums (depending on how big they are)
- Cook the potatoes and let them cool completely.
- Cut the plums in half if using big ones.
- Process the potatoes through a potato ricer.
- Combinw potato rice, oat flour and apple sauce and kneed until you have a firm dough. (It will still be a bit sticky).
- FLour a flat surface and divide the dough into 12-14 equally sized round pieces.
- Roll out to small circles.
- Put a plum/plum half in the middle of each circle and seal. It may be a good idea to have wet hands, it will make it easier to seal the knedle. Also, if the dough breaks a little, wet your hands a bit more so that the dough gets a bit sticky, that will help seal the. Don't worry, they won't break when you cook them.
- Bring water to a boil in a big pot.
- Lower the heat and let the water shimmer and add 3-4 knedle to the pot.
- When they come up to the surface of the water cook for about 5 minutes.
- Then bring out of the water and repeat until you have cooked them all.
- Serve with vegan yoghurt (you can also add some sweetener to the yoghurt if you prefer it sweeter).
