Ellie’s Sourdough Empanadas

October 16 is Community Bake Day and I wanted to share a recipe we could make together. We love hand pies and we have several recipes here on storycooking as well as on my Instagram account @elliemarkovitch

We also love fermented flour. This Sourdough Empanadas are light and you can let it ferment several hours or mix and bake, using the sourdough starter as an ingredient to flavor the dough.

Mix: 2 tbsp sourdough starter I used one that was pass pick but fed or from the fridge with work as well. If you don’t have, you can use 1 tsp of dry yeast )

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup oil

2 cups flour (I used Maine Grains 86% sifted wheat )

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt

Knead the dough and let it ferment in the counter for 6-8 hrs.

Roll out circles, with them with vegetable, add boiled eggs and beans for extra protein, fold in half, crimp them with a fork fold and press the edges together to close.

Bake 400F on a greased pan for 20 minutes. It makes 15 hand pies. Enjoy hot, take with you for the weekend adventures or freeze them for the lunch box.
