Argentinian Inspired Empanadas

These Argentinian Empanadas are so delicious. I like to add extra veggies to them to make them more well rounded.

I have had a pretty blah day. Nothing much happened except I watched a few movies that I recorded over the weekend. I pulled a muscle in yoga class the other day. Went too deep into a back bend, so I am out of commission until I re-cooperate.  It was stupid and I was foolishly trying to be too competitive with myself.

At one of the farmer’s markets that I frequent, one stall serves up Argentinian empanadas that are delicious. I wanted to recreate that flavor profile while also throwing in a few extra vegetables to round out the dish a little more. I had some puff pastry in the freezer that became my wrapper. Really it couldn’t get any simpler and the flavors are so strong from the spices that you could substitute most any meat and vegetable and have a wonderful little portable meal. Enjoy!
