Potato Turnover Recipe

I have been coming up with vegetarian potato recipes this week because I got a huge box of potatoes for two dollars from the local market. The pastry dough uses black beans, but you can substitute any beans you have on hand. It's a great way to get more legumes in for those who don't like them. These turnovers are easy to make, and the potatoes can be replaced if you have other veggies you want to use up. The seasonings can also be replaced-if you are in the mood for mexican use cilantro and hot peppers.

Turnover Pastry
Preheat oven to 400.
4 c. cooked black beans ( you can sub 2-15 oz. cans, rinsed and drained)
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sea salt
3 T. olive oil
1/2 c. skim milk
In food processor, puree beans, then add remaining ingredients and process till dough forms a ball. Remove and roll out about 1/8 " thick on floured surface. Use a 6" bowl to cut rounds of dough.
Filling
Saute
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
in 1 T. olive oil for about 10 min. till tender. Then add
2 large white potatoes, cooked and diced
2 sweet potatoes, cooked and diced
1/2 tsp. each: sea salt, oregano, and basil
1/8 tsp. pepper
Place 1-2 T. of filling onto the center of each dough round. Top with
1-2 T. shredded jack cheese
fold over and crimp edges together tightly. Brush with olive oil and bake on baking sheet about 20 min. Makes about 12.
