Beet Varenyky (Ukrainian Potato Dumplings)
One of my favorite things to make are dumplings. There are endless ways to make them interesting whether with the filling, the dough, the sauce or the toppings. Varenyky are Ukrainian dumplings, usually filled with potatoes, and served with sour cream, caramelized onions and fresh dill. Last week I shared with you a bunch of dips to make when your friends over, and I used that same beet dip to make this Varenyk dough. The color is unbelievable and the beets & goat cheese add such depth to the varenuky, making this dish even more addictive! Making dumplings is easier than it looks, the dough is very forgiving and it's a great activity to do together with kids.
