Hey plant friends! I have very veggie and a super cool recipe to share. This veggie-loaded interpretation of the classic Venezuelan Empanada is a perfect meal to prep for a family or friend's dinner. It's healthy and balanced, loaded with rich Latin flavors and, if everyone adds a hand preparing and filling the Empanadas, the dish shouldn't take longer than 30 minutes to prep.
The recipe idea of giving the Venezuelan classic Empanada a healthy twist came from my beautiful Venezuelan friend Juliana. On social, she shares classic Venezuelan dishes and loves to give them a healthy twist. For more Venezuelan recipes, definitely check out her profile. :)
But now, let's dive into the world of veggie, sweet potato Empanadas.
PS: If you're still doubtful about how to knead and roll out the dough for a perfect Empanada, check out this video in which Juliana and I explain our ways of making sweet potato Empanadas.
I hope you enjoy this delicious, sweet potato-based & protein-loaded interpretation of the classic Venezuelan Empanada as much as I do. Especially for those who have traveled to Latin America and love the Latin kitchen, I'm so sure you will love this recipe.
