Lenten Potato Pies

Be sure to treat your colleagues lenten pies with potatoes, especially those who believe that food without meat can not be tasty. Everyone will like it!


  • 500 g lean yeast dough
  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 2 medium onions
  • 3 tbsp. l vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp. l seasoning for potatoes
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp leaf black tea
  • salt

Step 2

Cook the potato for pies in salted boiling water in a jacket until soft, pour over with cold water, cool, peel and grate.

Step 3
