Mushroom-Stuffed Potato Zrazy with Satsibeli

by Alice Zaslavsky, from In Praise of Veg

I haven’t mastered the pronunciation of this dish but I feel I’ve 💯 nailed the dish. Zrazy (pronounced ZRAH-zii) are golden mashed potato rissole-like parcels of deliciousness.

Hubster loves mashed potato and often requests it. I really dislike it, so it’s fair to say mashed potato almost never gets a run in this house. This recipe has elevated the humble mash into something that is now on my favourites list and will go into rotation as a regular meal.

The mushroom duexelles is such a simple method of cooking yet the flavour result is intense. It took immense self-control not to shovel this into my mouth warm out of the pan. Or for that matter, cold after taking some photos this morning.

The mushrooms are encased by rich, fluffy mashed potato which is then pan-fried for a crispy, golden finish.

Vegan Substitutions for Mushroom-Stuffed Potato Zrazy

Vegan substitutions were easy for this recipe and it cooked perfectly as vegan-friendly.

I always have a couple of packets of Orgran No Egg Egg replacer in my pantry – I go through quite a lot of this. It’s readily available from most health stores and is also stocked by some Woolies. A flax egg might work as a substitute in this dish, however might result in adding a ‘speckled’ finish to the mash and might be slightly less visually appealing.

I served the Zrazy for dinner with a simple side of steamed green beans, melted butter, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and sprinkle of salt flakes. For lunch, one of these went down a treat on it’s own after being gently reheated in a skillet.

    Please buy this book. It is without doubt, the most glorious cook book I've ever owned.

  • Vegan Substitutions
    Vegan substitutions were easy and worked very well for this recipe. You'll find the full ingredient list and method on page 320 of In Praise of Veg, with my vegan substitutes below. I also used the Mash Recipe from page 298 of In Praise of Veg.
  • BUTTER @nuttelexspread Buttery is my every day and cooking butter. ⠀
  • EGGS I used 1 teaspoon of @orgranfoods No Egg Egg Replacer with 1 tablespoons of water as replacement for the egg yolk.⠀
  • CREAM (for Mashed Potatoes) I used Loco Dairy Free Thickened Creamy


The deliciousness of this recipe cannot be overstated. Plan ahead when you have this on the menu as the key ingredients of mashed potato and mushroom duxelles need to be cold. I also recommend taking the extra step to push the potato through a fine sieve to remove all lumps, it really adds to the final result.
The Satsibeli was delicious but I’ll omit this for future cooks as I loved the Zrary with a simple sprinkle of salt flakes.
