Empanadas de Guayaba y Queso (Guava and Cheese Empanadas / Hand Pies / Turnovers)

My first time eating these was at the airport in Miami on my way back from visiting family in Buenos Aires. I fell in love. I started serving guava paste with hard cheeses as an appetizer, but didn’t try making pastries until a comedy video on the YouTube Mitú channel led me to a blog called My Big Fat Cuban Family that features Pastelitos de Guavaba y Queso using Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets. I was about to drop a box of these in my cart at the grocery store when I read the ingredients and saw hydrogenated cottonseed oil. Back onto the freezer shelf it went. I believe Whole Foods sells puff pastry sheets made with butter only, so someday I may buy them and follow the Cuban Family recipe…or maybe I will learn to make laminated dough myself.

In the meantime, here is my recipe for guava and cheese pastries, empanada style, with pie crust.  Read the rest of this entry »

Simple salad of #sardines #manchego and lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. (The greens, too, of course.) #omega3 More #fermentedquinoabread Gluten free fermented quinoa bread. Three  ingredients (quinoa, water, salt) plus poppy and pumpkin seeds. Different flavor - but also tasty - compared to fermented buckwheat bread. Experimenting with this, I've found the type of quinoa i use to be crucial. If it can't sprout, then the ferment doesn't turn out good. This is not a function of organic vs. not; i don't know why some quinoa can't sprout. #gf #glutenfree #fermentedfoods #slowfood #bioavailability #lactobacillus #fermentedquinoabread #quinoa #fermented
