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.

Mum’s spaghettini with braised chicken, tomato and rosemary sauce


You'll need

80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 1 onion, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 400 gm skinless chicken thigh fillets (about 6) 400 ml tomato passata 150 ml chicken stock 1 rosemary sprig 1 fresh bay leaf 600 gm dried spaghettini To serve: finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

Method

  • 01
  • Heat half the olive oil in a large saucepan over low heat, add onion and garlic and stir occasionally until translucent (5-7 minutes). Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add chicken, season to taste and cook, turning once, until browned (4-5 minutes). Add to onion mixture, then add tomato passata, 100ml stock, rosemary and bay leaf. Reduce heat to low-medium and simmer until tender (1-1½ hours), adding more stock if sauce gets too thick. Set aside to cool slightly, then coarsely shred chicken and return to sauce, season to taste and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Cook spaghettini in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (5-7 minutes), drain well, return to saucepan, add sauce, season to taste, toss to combine and serve hot scattered with grated parmesan.
This recipe is from the March 2013 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
