Sweet Potato, Mushroom and Olive Empanadas

I try to focus my posts on recipes that are simple and easy to make but this is by far the most complicated one I’ve posted yet.

I stay away from it for a majority of my shopping trips but there are rare occasions when I think tofu really works (I mean actually tastes like food and not a gelatinous ball of squishy paper)–my beefless-bolognese is one of them. This is tofu you’ll actually enjoy eating.
