I was inspired to do this kind of pie when I was in a stint of watching The Great British Baking Show. I loved the idea of a filling pie stuffed with delicious savory flavors.
This five course tasting menu is versatile and satisfying. Roasted poblano cream soup, roasted brussels sprouts in escabeche, sopes with fresh jicama salsa, folded enchiladas in mole poblano, and chile chocolate mousse.
Sopes are fried masa and potato boats that are delightfully crunchy, and can be topped with any variety of delightful flavors.
A spicy chocolate mousse that is a perfect way to end a meal.
Huaraches are essentially oblong black bean stuffed tortillas, topped with any myriad of delicious additions.
In my second batch of making Japanese Steamed Buns, I had much more success with the actual buns, and I explored a couple more vegetarian fillings.
It’s been a while since I’ve deep fried something. Discovering how easy and delicious these veggie empanadas are is not going to be a positive influence on my diet.
