i found this specific video posting that actually made me subscribe to her channel because it was informative and it looks like she obviously did allot of work on it. so here you go.
This video is for all the vegans out there starting out and old if you wanted to know about products that aren't vegan and ones that are well here ya go i shall actually be doing my own vid once I'm finished with my own research its just going to be one huge haul thing so yea lots of planning.
well so my Sunday started off like this.
i took my moms beans and had black bean soup (My Fave) and a hero and cup up half of the hero and left a bit of it together and made a small left over tofurkey seitan sandwich. inside the sandwich was my Ecuadorian salad sauce.
Not only does the sauce add color to the sandwich but it also adds a ZING to it.
So as the day went on i got to thinking about my babe and how when i finally get to see him this week i need to have something for him to eat. Especially since we did not get to spend Thanks Giving with each other. So i decided to make. ...........WAIT FOR IT .......... (dan dan duuuuuuunnnnn)
you get some garlic and put some cumin, adobo . Sazon , and a tad of ground Oregano. And smash away !
(in case you are wondering i don't have measurements because this is more of a as much as you like also depends on how many empanadas you are making. )
When your done mashing up the garlic with all the dry ingredients. Take a frying pan and put the mashed up garlic and some of the chopped garlic and onions with some olive oil and stri fry that a little bit. Once it is a little bit like a liquid mixture place your meat substitute and mix together.
so i have made this before and i used light life (ground beef) . But the ground beef i left at home went bad so that was out of the question. So i decided to use seitan i took the cubes and cut them up into almost small ground beef like structures. I put this in the pan and mixed together. then i transferred to it a small sauce pan and put some tomatoe paste , white cooking wine, and red wine vinegar. at the end your mixture and sauce should look some what like this.
Then you take some of these :
you can get these at your local supermarket i got mine from Pathmark. These are just some Empanada Pastry plates. they say it on the packaging.
You place some of the meat sauce (its what i call it ) into the middle of the pastry packet thing and fold it over like this.
when you fold it over you press it down so that it actually makes a pocket for the meat. then the little wedges on the outside take a fork and press onto the sides of it like this:
Then you take that and and fry it till its nice and brown.
Then let it cool and Enjoy.
Hope you have enjoyed this
