- In a large pot, over medium heat, melt the vegetable shortening. Add the onions, shallots, and garlic and cook until they are soft but not browned.
- Lower the heat and add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, chopped mixed green and red peppers, parsley, wine, stock, and mushrooms.
- Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add the carrots, zucchini, squash, and broccoli and cook until the vegetables are al dente. Add the mixed vegetables and spinach and heat through. Drain the vegetables and put them into an ice bath. When cool, drain well.
- Put the vegetables back into the pot along with the creamed corn. Mix in the red pepper flakes, paprika, oregano, Cajun seasoning, and salt and pepper, to taste. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Place 1/4 cup vegetable mixture on the middle of each empanada dough disk. Avoid reaching the edges with the filling because oiliness will prevent good sealing. Slightly wet the edges, fold in half, and stick edges together. The shape should resemble a half-moon. Seal by pinching the edge between your thumb and index finger to make a curl about 5 or 6 times. Other sealing procedures like pinching without curling or using a fork to seal will not prevent the juices from leaking.
- Place the finished empanadas on the cookie sheet and brush them with the egg yolk. Cook until they are golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes.
VEGETABLE EMPANADAS WITH TOMATO SAUCE
This recipe comes from an Argentinian grocery store booklet. As an Argentinian myself, I have never try empanadas with dipping sauce, but several times when I bake empanadas, my american friends coment that they would probably be really good with a dipping sauce. That is why when I saw this recipe I decided to post it. I have not try it yet.

QUICK VEGETARIAN PICADILLO EMPANADAS
These empanadas are filled with a vegetarian Puerto Rican-style picadillo filling. A few shortcuts (using canned potatoes and lentils) make them quicker to make.

- Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add lentils, sofrito, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper; cook for 4 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in potatoes, tomato sauce, and olives. Simmer until mixture is warmed through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
- Fill a deep skillet or frying pan with 2 inches vegetable oil and place over medium heat while you assemble the empanadas.
- Set empanada discs on a clean work surface. Add 1/4 cup of lentil-potato mixture to the center of one half of an empanada disc in a half moon shape (so it follows the curve of the wrapper). Wet your fingers in a bowl of water and run them around the entire edge of the wrapper to moisten. Fold the wrapper in half to cover the filling and pinch the edges of the dough together to seal, then use a fork to crimp the edges to secure the wrapper further. Repeat with the remaining discs and filling.
- Once oil has reached 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), add empanadas in a single layer; do not overlap. You will need to cook in batches.
- Fry until empanadas are golden brown and crispy, flipping once or twice so they brown evenly while frying, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat to cook remaining empanadas.

"NOW AND LATER" VEGETARIAN EMPANADAS
This is from "More Make Your Own Groceries". There are instructions for both eating right away and freezing to eat later. This is one of several dishes I made in preparation for the birth of my daughter and would probably be good for someone who doesn't usually have enough time (or energy) to make a healthy meal for themselves every day, but has a period of time to make this. I've probably estimated prep time on the high side because I'm a slow cooker.
