This is a great low calorie portable lunch or dinner. On cold days I pop it into the school microwave for 15 seconds- which melts the parmesan and makes a nice warm treat! Add some jalapenos or pepper to spice it up!Submitted by ZINENIST
I've borrowed from 2 different recipes on two different websites:
http://cookbad.blogspot.com/2007/03/galician-tuna-empanada-with-melting.html - has what appears to be a wonderfully authentic Spanish empanada
While the pastry was insprired by hidy_lady at: http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/290/butternut-squash-pastry-for-pies.aspx
Instead of doing one family sized empanda like the spanish would, I've made 12 individual portions South American style to help me with portion control.
These will take some time so make them on the weekend for weekday lunches.
You can make both the pastry and filling a day ahead.Submitted by JWOURMS
This quick and healthy side dish takes just minutes to prepare! And as a bonus, it's an easy way to get the kids to eat their vegetables. (And if you don't like using butter spray, you could melt a few pats of butter and brush the butter on with a pastry brush - whatever your preference!)Submitted by MATCM81
