Samosas or creative ideas to have a fun dinner with kids

Yesterday's dinner idea was quite simple and very convenient as I finished the vegetables leftovers in my fridge.
The basic idea is to have filo pastry filled with a stuffing of your choice.
For my recipe, you need, for 12 samosas :
- 6 filo pastries
- an egg yolk
- 1 thick slice of cooked ham
- 4 slices of prosciutto
- 2 onions
- 4 cooked brocoli florets
- 4 tbsp of spinach
- 4 sun dried tomatoes

- prepare the stuffing : dice the onions and all the hams and fry them until nicely browned
- cut the filo in 2 half circles ; put a tbsp of stuffing + a tbsp of tomatoes or half a broccoli or 1 tbsp of spinach and follow my drawing to fold them in triangle
- spread egg yolk with a brush on each and put them for 10 min in a pre-heated oven (400F)
Ask your kids to put any vegetable they like in their samosa and help them fold them ; they'll eat them for sure!
Enjoy with a green salad and you have a very balanced dinner!
