Pistachio, Lemon Zest and Ras El Hanout Bastila

Great use of turkey, chicken, or your poultry leftovers. This version of the most famous Moroccan dish uses puff pastry instead of filo because filo is more delicate and requires more attention and time. And really, puff pastry tastes just as good. Take your taste buds on a Moroccan adventure and try this delicious fragrant Bastila!!

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a large nonstick pan, heat the Olive Oil (3 Tbsp) over medium heat. Once the oil is warm, transfer the Onions (3 1/3 cups) . Lower the heat to medium-low and cover with a lid. Leave until the onions are soft and translucent, about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Step 2
Add the Fresh Cilantro (3 Tbsp) , Garlic (1/2 Tbsp) , Honey (2 Tbsp) , Ras el Hanout (1 tsp) , and Salt (1/2 tsp) . Stir the ingredients together and leave until the onions are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally. Taste the onions and add salt if necessary. Once the onions are golden, set the mixture aside until ready to assemble.
Step 3
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Step 4
In a small bowl, mix together the Shelled Pistachios (3/4 cup) , Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1 Tbsp) , and Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp) . Set aside until ready to assemble.
Step 5
In a small frying pan, melt the Butter (1/2 Tbsp) , scramble the Large Eggs (2) , and set it aside until ready to assemble. Make sure the scrambled eggs are not undercooked or runny. The liquid will affect the pastry during the assembling process.
Step 6
Unroll the Puff Pastry (11.5 oz) . Dip a 2.5-inch cookie cutter into the dough and make as many circles as possible. Press the remains of the dough back together, flatten the dough with a rolling pin, and cut out more circles.
Step 7
Place a tsp of the onion mixture in the center of a pastry circle, leaving enough of a border to seal the dough. Top with some Roasted Chicken (7 oz) about ¼ tsp pistachios and a generous pinch of Lemons (2) .
Step 8
Dip your fingers in water and brush around the edges of the dough. This will help to seal the dough. Gently place a second dough circle on top of the first one and seal the edges with a fork. Repeat the same process until you have exhausted all the pastry dough.
Step 9
If desired brush the bastilas with a beaten egg. Transfer in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Start checking for doneness after 15 minutes.
Step 10
Serve warm and sprinkle each bastila with Granulated Sugar (to taste) and ground cinnamon.
