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.

Gruyère biscuits


You'll need

240 gm plain flour ½ tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste, plus extra for dusting 160 gm unsalted butter, chilled 2 tbsp sparkling mineral water, chilled 80 gm finely grated Grana Padano or sharp cheddar 80 gm coarsely grated Gruyère To serve: green olives, such as picholine

Method

  • 01
  • Mix flour, cayenne pepper, 2 tsp sea salt flakes and 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper in a large bowl. Grate chilled butter over and rub with your fingertips to form coarse crumbs. Add mineral water and knead to just combine, then knead in cheeses, taking care to work lightly (don’t overmix). Roll into a 34cm-long cylinder, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (30 minutes-1 hour).
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Slice dough into 1cm-thick rounds, place on 2 oven trays lined with baking paper and press each with a fork to lightly flatten. Season with a few turns of freshly ground pepper and a light dusting of cayenne. Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, until golden and aromatic (10-15 minutes). Cool slightly on trays, then cool on a wire rack and serve with green olives. Biscuits will keep in an airtight container for 2 days.
