A traditional Spanish dish for easter or ar an all-year dish from Argentina. You can choose either right. This dish was inspired by a close friend from Argentina, who shared his culture with me all along. Thanks Ariel!

What you need (for 4 empanadas)

  • 4 small sized empanada doughs (make them yourself or buy it ready to go)
  • 2 cans tuna in olive oil
  • 1 small can olives (stuffed with anchovies)
  • 1/4 red bell pepper
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 spoon oregano
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 small egg


How you do it

Chopp all veggies (including the olives). Heat up a pan and stir-fry tuna with the chopped veggies. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano. Once everything is done wait for the tuna mix to cool down.

Lay out the empanada doughs. Plac 1-2 spoons of tuna-mix in the middle of one side. Fold the other half over it and seal the opening with a fork or overfolding them.

Stir the egg with a brush. Paint the empanadas with some egg. Afterwards bake the empanadas for aprox 25 mins in a 180ºC pre-heated oven.

Serve and enjoy
