    This quick and easy empanada gallega recipe will show you how to make the classic Galician dish.
    It’s origin like many other traditional Spanish dishes is a highly debatable topic, many say that pilgrims throughout the Camino de Santiago would carry the empanada, not to eat it but as a way of transporting food and preserving it for longer. What is clear is that empanada gallega has been around for a long time with written evidence as early as the 7th century! Its link to Galicia is so strong that its even engraved on the Pórtico de la Gloria which is the front fascia of Santiago de Compostela’s cathedral which was built in the 12th century. Serve your empanada gallega as a lunch dish or as part of a tapas selection with a green salad and a cold glass of albariño.
