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.

Tomato-baked prawns and feta


You'll need

2 tbsp olive oil 2 baby fennel bulbs, cut into thin wedges 1 Spanish onion, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 2 tsp dried mint 1 tsp dried chilli flakes 150 ml dry white wine 800 gm canned chopped tomatoes or cherry tomatoes Juice of 1 lemon, or to taste 16 medium uncooked prawns, peeled and cleaned 60 gm Greek feta, coarsely crumbled For drizzling: extra-virgin olive oil To serve: coarsely torn mint and flat-leaf parsley   Crushed white beans 800 gm canned white beans, drained and rinsed 150 ml chicken stock 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 240C. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add fennel, onion and garlic and sauté until just tender (2-3 minutes). Add mint and dill, cook until fragrant, add wine and boil until reduced by half (2-3 minutes). Add tomatoes, simmer to slightly thicken (1-2 minutes), add lemon juice and season to taste. Spread in a baking dish large enough to hold prawns in a single layer with a little space in between, press prawns into tomato mixture to half submerge, scatter feta over and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil. Bake until prawns are cooked through (6-8 minutes). To serve, scatter with extra herbs.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for crushed white beans (optional), bring ingredients (except oil) to the boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Strain off half the liquid and reserve. Add oil and process with a hand-held blender until coarsely crushed. Add a little of the reserved cooking liquid to thin to desired consistency, season to taste and serve warm with tomato-baked prawns.
