My lovely husband made Gozleme Dough for our dinner last Friday night (to accompany our viewing of the Royal Wedding!) and it was deeeee-licious. The recipe made enough dough for 4 adults and 2 kids and there was enough left for pizzas for dinner the next night! So don't worry if there's a lot of it... Gozleme was super easy, fun to make and a great way to get some sneaky spinach into the kiddos. Here's the recipe...
Ingredients (serves 4)
8g sachet instant dried yeast
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon caster sugar
3 cups plain flour
1/3 cup olive oil
200g baby spinach
200g feta cheese, crumbled
400g beef mince (optional)
1 tbsp canola oil
lemon wedges, to serve
Combine 300ml warm water, yeast, salt and sugar in a jug. Stir with a fork. Cover. Stand in a warm, sunny place for 5 minutes or until bubbles form on the surface.
Sift flour into a large bowl. Add yeast mixture and 2 tablespoons oil. Mix to form a soft dough. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5 minutes or until elastic. Cut dough into 4. Place on a greased baking tray. Cover with a clean tea towel. Stand in a warm, sunny place for 20 minutes or until dough doubles in size.
While dough is proving, fry beef mince (if including) in oil until browned.
Roll each piece dough into a 35cm x 45cm rectangle. Place one-quarter of spinach over half of each rectangle. Top with feta and mince, and season with salt and pepper. Fold dough over to enclose filling. Press edges together to seal.
Preheat a barbecue plate on medium-high heat. Brush one side of each gozleme with 2 teaspoons oil. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until base is golden. Brush uncooked side with remaining oil. Turn over and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove to a serving plate. Cut gozleme into quarters. Serve with lemon wedges.
