Baking day

on April 15, 2005

Ok, I’m stil not very sure how this works, but decided that today I would write about cooking. I woke up this morning feeling like tuna empanada (ha ha very funny – no, like eating one!) and as we don’t have any recipes for that, I went and trawled the internet and have put together my own recipe with the results. I’m not very good at compiling several recipes into one usually, so we’ll have to see how it goes.
At the moment the recipe is looking something like:

75 g drained canned tuna
a tomato fom a can and some of the juice from it too
some tomato paste from a tube
a hard-boiled egg
some black pepper
some oregano
possibly some chopped up green olives (but Dan doesn’t like them).

275 g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder (not soda, I’m told there is a difference)
100 ml sunflower oil
100 ml red wine (supposed to be white but I only have red)

To make:
Set oven to 200 C.
Mix all filling ingredients and set aside.
Mix flour, bp, salt and oil until smooth (hopefully anyway, or possibly breadcrumby)
Add wine and mix until forms dough.
Knead until it looks/feels ready.
Roll/squash into several roundish shapes.
Spoon portion of filling onto half of each round shape.
Fold round shapes over (like pasties/calzone) and seal edges.
Put on greaseproof paper on baking tray and bake 20 minutes or so, probably less as my oven is fan-assisted.

I shall post later to say how this turned out.
