Feta and greens gozleme

A lot of rolling and folding go into making this Turkish flatbread, but when you bite into them all the hard work will be forgotten. The traditional filling is silverbeet, but we've added kale and fresh herbs for fragrance and flavour. A good sprinkle of salt at the end and a squeeze of lemon are non-negotiable. Start this recipe a day ahead to rest the dough.

6 ripe tomatoes, scored 100 gm mixed quinoa (see note) 175 gm (1 cup) drained canned chickpeas (see note) 1 celery heart, finely chopped 120 gm (1 cup) frozen peas, defrosted ½ Spanish onion, finely chopped 1 small bunch spring onions, thinly sliced 1 cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped 1 cup (firmly packed) mint, thinly sliced 2 lemons, juice only 1 lemon, rind only, removed with a peeler, very thinly sliced 1 tbsp olive oil
