Serves 6

Gluten free, dairy free, heart healthy, low fat

Ingredients:

  • 6 pieces rice paper (spring roll paper)
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves / 1 tbsp minced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3/4 cup garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 2 tbsp curry powder

Directions:

  • Dice all veggies, except spinach and garbanzo beans
  • In large pan or wok, heat olive oil over med-high heat, add garlic and onion.  Heat until onions become transluscent, about 2 minutes.
  • Add in rest of veggies except spinach + curry powder, sautee for 1 min, then add spinach.  Reduce to medium heat, sautee further until spinach wilted and carrots softened 5-10 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and take pan off stove.
  • Preheat oven to 350*F
  • Fill a large, shallow pan with warm/hot water (for rice paper).  Might be better off just following their instructions on this one! – Basically you’re just going to stick the rice paper into the warm water for a few seconds, but it’ll stick together, so careful to stick it in flat.  I’m terrible at this.
  • (don’t forget to shake off extra water)
  • Lay rice paper on chopping board, fill with a generous spoonful of the filling.  Then fold into a triangle-ish shape.  Or try!
  • Lay your samosas onto a baking sheet lined with Al foil or wax paper.  Brush outsides with Olive Oil to crisp the outside.
  • Bake at 350* for 10 min. Enjoy!
