Ingredients And Procedures

1 pk Frozen puff pastry sheets

-- 17 1/4 oz 1 c Onions, diced

1 tb Safflower oil

3 c Mushrooms, coarsely chopped

1/2 c Liquid egg substitute

1 c Kasha

2 c Vegetable broth

Salt & pepper 1 ts Water

1 tb Poppy seeds

Thaw pastry sheets according to package directions. Saute onions in oil in a large skillet until lightly browned. Add mushrooms & cook until mushrooms are lightly browned. Set aside. Place egg substitute in a bowl & toss the kasha in it. Place tossed kasha in a large skillet with a tightly fitting cover. Over high heat, flatten, stir & chop the kasha with a fork until the grains separate. Remove from heat. Bring broth to a boil. Slowly pour broth over the kasha, cover skillet, & cook over low heat until the liquid is all absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Stir in onion-mushroom mixture, salt & pepper. Cool to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350F & oil a cookie sheet. On a lightly floured board, roll one pastry sheet into a 11" X 14" rectangle. Cut into 3" circles & place 2 ts filling in the centre of each circle. Pull edges up around the filling, completely enclosing it. Pinch dough together to form a tight package. Turn packages over & place seam side down on a cookie sheet. Beat remaining egg substitute with water to make an "egg wash". Brush each knish with this wash & sprinkle with poppy seeds. Repeat with remaining sheets of dough. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
