Today I Made:
BANANA AND BLACK BEAN EMPANADAS for DINNER.
Recipe from VEGETARIAN TIMES MARCH 2009 issue.
Whole wheat dough filled with black beans, onions, bananas, and spices.
Baked until golden brown.
Served with homemade GUACAMOLE.
Empanadas are the Latin-American version of calzones.
I've seen them stuffed with pumpkin, pineapple, and meat ( dead animal flesh ) of course.
This version was amazing.
The stuffing was both sweet from the bananas and spicy from the chili powder.
My only recommendation is to make a salsa or guacamole like I did.
Because the empanadas are little too dry on there own.
I'm definitely going to try making these again with different stuffings.
The possibilities are endless.
