happy food: Emma Leigh Plant Based Mini Empanadas

Having a four year-old, I'm always exposing her to new foods. While I don't cook red meat, I do prepare chicken and fish dinners. I also try to serve as many different foods from the world as well as plant-based products. Recently, I tried Emma Leigh's Plant Based Mini Empanadas which I found at Costco. 

Made with Beyond Beef, these empanadas were spiced perfectly and had a meat-like texture (if you're vegan, the beefy texture might put you off. It threw me a little. I haven't eaten beef since I was child.) They are packed with flavor but a little dry. I served them with freshly made guacamole, salsa verde and Greek yogurt. Dipped in the sauces, they were great. This was our main meal, which I served with a salad. While this gets two thumbs up from Larry and I, Waverly was a little more trepidatious. She liked the pastry but not so much on the filling. 

If you're trying to live a more plant-based lifestyle, these little pockets might be just what you're looking for.
