I hope you had great holidays, relaxing and full of amazing food! I know I did!
Since this is my first post since (what seems like) ages, I decided to stick to something rather simple, but very delicious: Empanada with tuna and a mix of caramelized onions and three-color peppers!
I used commercially available dough, special for empanadas (very similar to brisee, in my opinion). I definitely believe that if you can find good quality ready dough, it’s not a bad thing to use it! So, no, I’m not ashamed 🙂 .
I attended recently a Thai-cuisine course and, even though I left agitated due to the (pointless and annoying) efforts of the teacher to brainwash me with how awesome cilantro is (eew!), I did get the chance to taste a delicious salad.
The title says “Thai-inspired” because there were ingredients in the original recipe that I skipped in this one. Either because I didn’t have them at hand or because I felt I’ll like it more without them. Also, the onions were fried crunchy, but I opted for simply caramelizing them.
But no worries! I will give you the full recipe at the end of the post, mentioning the ingredients I didn’t use.
