These healthy, oven-baked samosas will be your new obsession this fall. They are freezer friendly, perfect for meal prep, and most importantly it wont hurt your bank. If you happen to have kids, this is the perfect way to make them eat carrots and zucchini without even realizing it.
You might have noticed that it has been a while since my last published recipe, life happens. I’ve decided to take the blog towards a new direction, and start writing in English rather than French. Without any further or do, here is everything you need to know about theses samosas.
Ingredients (for 22 samosas)
- 450g Ground beef
- 2 Carrots
- 1 Zucchini
- 1 Onion
- Rass el hanout
- Tomato paste
- Olive oil
- Unsalted butter
- Sriracha or harissa
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add vermicelli noodles and cook them for 4 minutes or until softened (always read the instructions on the packaging). Stir to maintain the noodles separated then drain and rinse with cold water. Put them aside for later.
- Add 1 teaspoon of: salt, pepper, paprika, curcuma, ginger powder, rass el hanout, chopped parsley and harissa in the ground beef, mix well.
- Finely chop the onion, garlic, and grate the carrots and the zucchini.
- In a large sauce pan, add the chopped onion and garlic, and stir until caramelized, then add in the ground beef.
- Let it cook until it starts turning brown. Just before it’s finished cooking, transfer it to another pan or a pot, and put the carrots and zucchini with a little bit of butter in the same pan the ground beef was cooked in.
- Stir for 4 minutes until it absorbs all the delicious flavors that were in the pan, then mix the veggies, the ground beef and the vermicelli all together. Let it cool down before stuffing the pastry sheets.
- Preheat the oven for 7 min on 230 °C, and let them bake for approximately 25 min or until golden brown and crispy.
These samosas were so delicious. The flavors came so well together; they breathe fall season! You can either eat them as they are, or dip them in the sauce of your choice. I’m fond of guacamole, but do you.
