Anti-waste recipe: vegetarian leftovers empanadas

Did you know that? According to the FAO, 250 km3 of water is used every year to produce food that is lost or wasted. This represents a volume of water three times greater than that of Lake Geneva. In order to fight against food waste at home, we suggest you to reproduce this anti-waste recipe elaborated by Expliceat.

Ingredients for 2 persons
  • 120g of pastry dough
  • 80g zucchini
  • 80g onion
  • 70g red pepper
  • 70g green pepper
  • 70g natural crush tomato
  • 10g olive oil
  • 5g sugar
  • 4g garlic
  • Salt

1.    Sauté the garlic and add the cut vegetables then fry for a few minutes 

2.    Add the crushed tomato, boil for 10 min and rectify with salt

3.    Julienne the onion and fry it together with the sugar until caramelized

4.    Cut the puff pastry into several rectangles, fill them with ratatouille and close them with a roll at the ends

5.    Prick them a little so that they do not rise too high and gild them with the egg

6.    Bake in the oven at 180ºC for 15 min 

7.    Once baked, cut them in half and decorate with the onion on top

8.    Enjoy!

Chef’s tip:

Many vegetables can fit perfectly the “ratatouille” stuffing the empenadas!
