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.

Potato and ricotta gnocchi with broccoli, radicchio and pangrattato


You'll need

80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 1 onion, thinly sliced 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 long dried red chilli, seeds removed, finely chopped 230 gm broccoli, cut into florets, thinly sliced ½ radicchio, leaves coarsely torn 50 gm butter To serve: finely grated parmesan   Ricotta gnocchi 300 gm waxy potatoes, such as Dutch cream or bintje, scrubbed 150 gm ricotta 125 gm plain flour 40 gm (½ cup) finely grated parmesan 1 egg Pinch of nutmeg   Pangrattato 120 gm coarse fresh white breadcrumbs 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 30 ml extra virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. For ricotta gnocchi, cook potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until tender (15-20 minutes). Drain and cool slightly, then peel and pass through a potato ricer into a large bowl (alternatively, mash the potato). Pass ricotta through a course sieve into potato, then add remaining ingredients, season to taste and gently mix until just combined. Divide dough into four pieces and roll each on a lightly floured work surface to a 1.5cm-thick cylinder. Cut into 2.5cm lengths and cook, in batches, in a large saucepan of boiling salted boiling water until gnocchi float to the surface (1-2 minutes). Remove with a slotted spoon, refresh, and set aside on a lightly oiled tray.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for pangrattato, combine ingredients in a large bowl, spread over an oven tray and bake, stirring occasionally, until golden (6-8 minutes).
  • 03
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan over low heat, add onion, garlic and chilli and stir occasionally until caramelised (5-6 minutes). Add broccoli and radicchio, increase heat to medium-high and stir occasionally until broccoli is tender (4-5 minutes). Add butter and stir until melted. Add gnocchi, toss until golden and combined (2-3 minutes), season to taste. Divide among plates, scatter over pangrattato and grated parmesan and serve immediately.

Secret one: if you don't already own one, do yourself a favour and buy a potato ricer. Secret two: ensure the potatoes are dry before mashing. Cooking them whole stops them absorbing too much water; some Italian cooks even bake their potatoes whole until tender for a really dry result.
