I didn’t intend this to be a cooking blog, but these were so easy and delicious that I wanted to share them.  My wonderful husband Dave is vegetarian (ovo/lacto/pesco which means he does eat eggs/dairy/fish), and I struggle to find quick and good non-meat dishes to put into rotation.  This one definitely made the cut.  They turned out really well even though I had to scramble to finish them to get Arden who woke early from her nap.

Easy samosas

 

Easy Samosas 

Source:  Real Simple

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • Kosher salt and black pepper (I used table salt)
  • 2 cups store-bought refrigerated mashed or frozen mashed potatoes, thawed (about 16 ounces) (I used Idahoan brand potato flakes)
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 15-ounce package refrigerated piecrusts
  • 1 jar mango chutney (optional)
  • (Sour cream or plain yogurt) This is my addition

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the curry powder, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the potatoes and peas.
  2. Unroll the piecrusts and cut each into 6 triangles. Place a heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture in the center of each piece. Gather the corners of the dough and pinch to form a point. Pinch the seams to seal. Transfer to a baking sheet.
  3. Bake the samosas until golden, 22 to 25 minutes. Serve with the mango chutney and/or sour cream/plain yogurt if using.

I made these last week for the first time, and I already bought ingredients to make them again this week.  That good and easy!  I hope you enjoy as well!
