Perishke is my all time favourite Ukrainian food. I could eat it for days on end and not get sick of it. It is served at almost every holiday dinner, but of course, it’s tough to get a bunch of old Ukrainians to give up cheese and cream, so I decided to try to veganize the traditional dish using a crumbled tofu filling and a cashew cream sauce.
The first time I served it for family my brother’s girlfriend said, “How is this vegan if there is cheese in it?” She totally fell for the tofu substitute! Got ’em!
