Silesian Dumplings with Green Peas and Kale, and Red Pesto Sauce

 

Silesian dumplings aka kluski śląskie, are plum size potato dumplings with a characteristic small hole in the center. They are very popular in Silesia and in neighboring regions in Poland. They have slightly gummy texture due to addition of a potato starch. Silesian dumplings are very easy to make. They are vegan and gluten free!

Silesian dumplings are usually served as a side to meat dishes with gravy, but in my home, back in Poland, we used to serve them drizzled with melted butter and fried bread crumbs, or a generous amount of caramelized onion {oh, boy...}  

My today's recipe is a little different from the original, classic dumplings. I added green peas and kale to the mix. I like to serve them in a clear broth, or with a funky sauce, or mushroom gravy with ginger and garlic.
