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