CHEW THE RIGHT THING
Hungry Girl's Baked Veggie Samosas
Try a Triangle!
These baked-not-fried samosas are the BEST. 'Nuf said...
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Cool: 10 minutes
1 1/2 cups finely chopped cauliflower
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/8 tsp. curry powder
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 package Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet (or HG Alternative)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Place cauliflower in a medium microwave-safe bowl with 2 tbsp. water. Cover and microwave for 4 minutes, or until softened. Drain any excess water.
Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion until browned, about 2 minutes. Add cauliflower, peas, and garlic. Cook until onion is soft, peas have thawed, and garlic is fragrant, about 2 more minutes.
Transfer veggie mixture to a large bowl, and stir in seasonings. Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
Roll out dough into a large rectangle of even thickness. Cut sheet lengthwise into two even pieces. Cut each piece widthwise into thirds, leaving you with six rectangular pieces of dough. Thinly roll out each rectangle.
Arrange dough pieces with the shorter sides on the right and left. Evenly distribute veggie mixture among the centers.
One piece of dough at a time, fold and stretch the lower left corner to meet the upper right corner. Press edges firmly to enclose the veggie mixture. (Your samosas will be super stuffed!) With a fork, press edges to crimp and seal. Carefully transfer to the baking sheet.
Bake until dough is golden brown, about 12 minutes. Enjoy!

Vegetable Samosas, Average
Same Ol' Samosa…
Fact: When you put delicious filling inside a doughy shell, the results are more than likely going to be intensely tempting. Alas, even seemingly virtuous veggie samosas can get bogged down with oil once they're deep fried. Plus, samosas are typically served as an appetizer, getting you into calorie trouble even before the main course! That's why we reached for our favorite seamless dough sheet, mixed up a tasty filling, and popped our samosa swap into the oven. Our treats are not only delicious and guilt-free, but they're also LARGE (by samosa standards)! So the next time you want to make some veggie-packed doughy treats at home, give this recipe a whirl. You'll love it... and that's a fact too!
