VeganMoFo - Pierogies and Cabbage

I made this recipe for dinner and took to my mom’s to share, because my mom had never had pierogies before! I used store bought potato onion pierogies, briefly boiled then finished in the skillet, and served them over this tasty cabbage:

Cabbage and Onions with Bacon

1 large purple onion, sliced thin
1 t. olive oil
1 small head purple cabbage, sliced thin
1 heaping tablespoon bac’n bits
2 T. balsamic vinegar
2 T. cider vinegar

Saute the onion until soft and lightly browned. Stir in cabbage; cover and let cook over medium heat about 10 minutes, stirring once or twice. Uncover and stir in the vinegars. Add salt and pepper to taste.

As Mom likes to say, “Good and good for you!”

OH MY GOODNESS I haven't eaten pierogis since before I became a vegan - I miss them!! Those look scrumptious.

I made pierogis a little while back, they are dangerous. I should try this mix.

I have never had a pierogie. Your plate is beautiful. Where would you find the mix in the store? They look and sound fantastic.

Pierogies are one of my very favorite foods, ever! I haven't had them in so long, because I would need to make them from scratch...hey, I need to do that!

I could kiss you!

My Mom is a 1st generation American so her parents (Her Father was from Italy, her mother from Poland) raised her on traditional cultural foods... which she then raised us eating! I have't had pierogies since my very early childhood! I'm beyond stoked to make the vegan version! XOXO

that is a really nice pic. those pierogies are scarily perfect w/ those fort marks. I've never had store bought ones look that good.

This is a beautiful picture of a very attractive meal. But how did you keep the purple cabbage looking so...purple? Mine always gets weird.
