Last sunday was another great Cookalong with Frida and Ciana. They in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden. This time we made Argentine Vegetarian Empanadas. Empanadas can be found everywhere in Argentina. The most common filling is with beef, but it can really be anything you like and prefer. We made ours vegetarian. Instead of ground beef we used crumbled, marinated and baked Tofu and added that to a filling with onion, garlic, chili pepper, bell pepper, shredded carrots and potatoes. We also added the traditional hard boiled eggs.
I never want to waste food. And often I compose a meal from leftovers I have. This meal is such one. I looked at my ingredients and thought: What can I make? Yes a delicious Fried Rice with a twist.
Sometimes it is great to be able to put together a meal that doesn’t take too much time. What is better than a sandwich. I had sliced roast beef in my freezer and could take out a few pieces. What else; A couple slices of toast, some chopped onion and garlic, a couple leaves Pak Choy, a few slices Cheddar Cheese and a tsp mustard, butter and olive oil. As a side I made some carrot and potatoe fries in the airfryer.
Cookalong with Frida and Ciana last Sunday night. They in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden. We made a Vegetarian Nacho platter with Tofu, vegetables and Guacamole. It was amazing. We marinaded the Tofu and baked it in the oven. We made Nacho chips from Tortillas and fried in the airfryer. We chopped Bell pepper and some cabbage and Bok Choy and made Guacamole from Avacado. When the ingredients were prepared we assembled the platter, sprinkled with shredded cheese and put it in the oven for the cheese to melt. Such an easy and great meal.
