Servings 4 people



  • 200 g all purpuse flour
  • pinch salt
  • 110 ml cold water


  • 150 g ofu
  • 200 g soy yogurt
  • 30 g maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 75 g ground walnuts


  • 25 g coconut oil
  • 50 g breadcrumbs



  • Put flour in a bowl, add salt and stir.
  • Make a dent in the middle, pour water into it and mix with a fork from the middle outwards.
  • Finally, knead with your hands to form a uniform dough.
  • Cover the dough with foil and let it rest in the fridge for about an hour.


  • Put all of the ingredients for the filling in a blender and blend into the cream.


  • Roll out the dough on a floured kitchen towel into a rectangle measuring 30 cm x 45 cm.
  • Coat the entire surface of the dough evenly with the filling and roll it tightly.
  • Wrap the roll in a boiled kitchen towel (which can be sprinkled with breadcrumbs to make the štruklji easier to remove) and tie both ends with an elastic band.
  • Put water in a large pot and bring it to a boil. When it starts boiling, put a roll in it, lower the heat and cook for about 40 minutes.
  • Once the rolls are cooked, remove them from the water and carefully unwrap the cloth and cut into slices.


  • Put coconut oil in a pan and heat it. When hot, add the crumbs, stir and fry for a few minutes. Stir several times in between so that they do not burn.


  • Arrange the slices on a plate, sprinkle with toasted breadcrumbs, add a little bit of cinnamon if desired and serve.
