Vegetable Samosas


😦Getting bored of lunches, wondering what to make that will excite everyone?⠀

🥟With some filo pastry leftover in the fridge, my daughter and I made these quick samosas for lunch. Probably took 20 mins to make all in all, 10 mins to bake in oven. (You could make the mixture and leave in fridge to use another time.)⠀

💥I served with coconut yoghurt, mango chutney, some chopped little gem for freshness. But they are FULL of veg so they stand alone as a super nutritious lunch.⠀

😁Everyone VERY happy!!!⠀


👉High in fibre.

👉Great way to hide lentils and get more veg into kids.

👉Good for using up leftovers.

👉Totally adaptable recipe.

👉Ginger, turmeric and garlic provide important immune boosting properties.

Simple. Delicious. Nutritious.



Recipe:

✨Heat oven to 200C. Grease baking tray.⠀

✨Peel and cube the potatoes quite small, then cook them and some red lentils… cover with boiling water mine took about 8 mins to cook, enough time to get the rest of the filling made.⠀

✨Fry an onion with garlic, ginger and turmeric.⠀

✨Add a grated carrot, frozen peas, a few frozen chopped beans, spinach, or any other veg to hand, chopped up small….⠀

✨I added 1 tsp of each of the following spices: mustards seeds, garam masala, turmeric, curry powder, cumin seeds, salt. BUT any one of these, with a basic curry powder would be fine.⠀

✨Finally add the cooked lentils and potatoes. Cook for a few mins until everything is combined and cooked through.⠀

✨Using butter or vegan butter depending on your preference, melt about 15g.⠀

✨Using half a sheet of filo pastry at a time, put a spoonful of mixture on the sheet in a corner and fold over - as you can see it’s all a bit random what shape you end up with, but that’s half the fun of it…. Just fold over, trying for a triangle shape, and brush melted butter to seal the pastry.⠀

✨Place on tray and brush with a little more butter.⠀

✨Bake for 10-15 mins at 200 until golden.
