Tuna Empanada
The recipe of the galician empanada is very varied. In this recipe we use a dough made with milk. The dough is made with yeast so it is necessary let it settle to ferment. We use a Thermomix, but if you don’t have one or a kneader, and do the dough by hand it is important not to forget to heat the liquid ingredients with the yeast before mixing them with de flour.
