St. Stephen's Day on December 26 is a traditional holiday in Catalonia. It is celebrated right after Christmas, with a feast including canelons. They are stuffed with ground meat from the escudella i carn d'olla, turkey or capon of the previous day (Christmas dinner).
And the recipe of the vegetarian "canelons":
You will need:
Boil the cannelloni pasta in water according to the package indications.
For the filling:
- A small onion
- A piece of zucchini
- Tomato sauce
Chop all the ingrendients and fry them in a pan with oil. Add salt and add the tomato sauce to the mix.
For the sauce:
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoons of flour
- Non-dairy milk (soy, oat...)
To make the bechamel sauce, in a saucepan with oil, add the flour and let it cook. Stirring at all times with a stick.
When the flour is cooked (the color changes, like toast, but not burn) slowly pour the milk. Don't add all at once, but you pour a little and blends well with the rod. If it starts to thicken, add more milk. And so on, until you have the amount to cover our cannelloni.
Salt & pepper and sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg.
The bechamel sauce should have a fine, light texture, not too thick, but with body.
Now fill the cannelloni pasta sheets with the mix and roll them.
Cover the cannelloni with the sauce and put them in the oven for a few minutes.
