  • Soups and Broths



  • Butter or olive oil for coating baking dish and basting.
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 pound lean ground beef (or turkey)
  • 2 cups minced onions
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • 3 cups flour (appropriate to blood type)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-3 cups warm water (add in 3 Tablespoons increments)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon sea salt


  • 6 cups chicken or meat broth with 1 teaspoon tomato paste mixed in.

How to make it:


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet.
  2. Add the remaining filling ingredients.
  3. Cook until the meat turns brown and the liquid has been absorbed.
  4. Set aside to cool.


  5. Place flour in a large mixing bowl.
  6. Make a well in the flour and add the remaining dough ingredients.
  7. Mix with a fork adding water 3 Tablespoons at a time until you can form a ball with the dough.
  8. Knead dough for 10 minutes adding a little flour if the dough is sticky.
  9. When the dough is smooth, shiny, and elastic, divide it into two balls and wrap them in plastic wrap.
  10. Set aside for 20 minutes.
  11. Flatten each ball into an oblong shape.
  12. Use a rolling pin to roll each ball into a rectangle until paper thin.
  13. If the dough begins to become sticky, carefully lift and sprinkle a little flour underneath.


  14. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  15. Butter a 9'x13' baking dish.
  16. Cut dough into 2-inch squares.
  17. Put about 1/2 tsp of the meat filling in the middle of a square.
  18. Fold in half and pinch the short edges to seal a form a canoe shape. Then seal along the long edge.
  19. Place mantis seam-side up and very close together in a well-buttered baking dish.
  20. Brush tops with butter or oil and bake for 30 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown and tops are just starting to brown.
  21. While mantis are baking, read tip-below, heat broth in a large pot over low heat.
  22. When mantis are done, add them to the broth just until they start to plump - about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
  23. Tip: If you know you will have leftovers, don't add all the mantis to the broth. Heat the amount of broth you think you'll need for the number of mantis you'll eat. Store the broth and extra mantis separately in the refridgerator or freezer until you're ready for more.
