Garden Veggie and Goat Cheese Samosas with Sweet Peach and Basil Chutney |

I just have to first say that I am writing this from Florida while sitting outside! Unfortunately, it’s not sunny yet, but the sun is trying to peek through the dark rain clouds and I really hope it does.

You see, I really hate the rain. I hate rain more than any other type of weather, it just depresses me. I think I need to accept it though because apparently it is rainy season here in florida.

Oh well, if there is one good thing that comes from rain it is shopping.

Lots and lots of shopping, which my grandma is a pro at. Like a top of the line pro, so I know we are going to have fun rain or shine.

Anyway, I’ll try to keep you updated on the happenings of my trip as they happen, but for now, let’s just talk about these cute little triangular Samosas.

These are not your typical Indian Samosas. Instead of the traditional Indian potato filling, I swapped in a whole bunch of summer veggies. And some goat cheese, because I thought, why the heck not, I mean goat cheese goes with these flavors.

And let’s be honest, a little goat cheese can never, ever hurt.

You know my take on cheese. Cheese, especially goat cheese, is only going to make samosas better!.

So the filling is basically just a whole bunch of veggies mixed with indian spices and a little curry powder. I just thought they sounded really good together.

Samosas are all about the pastry around the filling.

A lot of people make a homemade pastry for their samosas that I am sure is absolutely amazing. But unfortunately, I did not do enough research on these and never read about the homemade pastry dough until AFTER I had already made them.

It’s ok though because I used phyllo dough, which you really can’t go wrong with. Plus it makes this meal easier to handle for a faster summertime version.

For the chutney, I kept it really simple. Instead of an all mint or cilantro chutney I added a ton of basil and a sweet peach.

I know it may sound a little odd, but I promise it’s so good and perfect for eating with these samosas. Also, it’s just that time of year when I start adding basil and peach to almost everything I make.

Gotta eat um up while you can!

Nutritional information is only an estimate. The accuracy of the nutritional information for any recipe on this site is not guaranteed.



  • 3-4 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 of a white onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 2 cups ears corn kernels removed form cob (or 2 frozen corn)
  • 1 zucchini chopped
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1/4 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes oil drained
  • 2 teaspoons garam marsala
  • 1 teaspoon spicy curry or regular curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 ounces goat cheese crumbled
  • 1 box frozen phyllo dough thawed



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease two baking sheets.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion to skillet, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add carrots, corn and red pepper, cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the zucchini, garam masala, curry powder, mustard powder, pinch of cayenne, pepper and salt. Cover and cook 4-5 minutes or until the veggies are tender crisp. Remove from the heat and stir in the sun-dried tomatoes. Allow to cool 10 minutes and then stir in the goat cheese crumbles.
  • Grab two sheets phyllo dough and lay one sheet on top of the other so they look like one single sheet. Cut the sheet lengthwise into 3 even strips, and coat each strip very lightly with olive oil or coconut oil. Cover the remaining phyllo dough to keep from drying while you work. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the veggie mixture onto 1 end of each strip. Fold 1 corner of phyllo dough over mixture, forming a triangle; keep folding back and forth into a triangle until you reach the end of the strip. Place triangles, seam side down, on a baking sheet. Brush triangles with the remaining 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile make the chutney. Add the butter to a high sided skillet or sauce pan set over medium heat. Add the peaches and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Once the peaches are soft, add the garlic, ginger, honey, bourbon and apple cider vinegar. Bring the mixture to a simmer and simmer 5 minutes or until the the liquid has thickened and reduced. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeño and a pinch of salt. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.


*You can puree the chutney if desired, but I am not sure of the color. I pureed the herbs and wished I would have just left them chunky. My color was not so pretty.
