Empanadas are a classic of Argentinean cuisine. These red bell pepper empanadas are not traditional and came from my own inspiration and love for the taste of roasted pepper bells. As any other empanadas, they are ideal for a picnic or a get-together with friends. Skip to the recipe.
Each region in Argentina has its own traditional recipe and it is usually meat based. However nowadays you can find empanadas with a lot of different fillings. While it is not difficult to find vegetarian ones on any major place selling empanadas, it is very hard to find vegan ones. So we have to make our own.
If you think that making the dough is too much work, you can buy pie crust and cut circles from it. I use a reversed bowl and cut along the borders with a serrated knife but if you have a round cutter with the appropriate size you can use it.
Try this recipe next time you have a picnic, they are sure to be a success!
