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.

Pineapple, mint, ginger and lime crush


With its bright flavours, this punch is a great way to start any summer lunch. You can also make a batch without the gin for non-drinkers or designated drivers - they'll thank you for it. We like to use a good cloudy ginger beer with plenty of gingery kick.

You'll need

400 gm coarsely chopped pineapple (about ½ pineapple) Juice of 3 limes and 2 oranges 50 gm finely grated ginger 180 ml gin To taste: ginger beer To serve: lemon, lime and orange slices and mint   Vanilla-mint syrup 165 gm caster sugar 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped ½ cup (firmly packed) mint

Method

  • 01
  • For vanilla-mint syrup, stir sugar and 125ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, add vanilla bean and seeds, bring to the boil and cook until a light syrup forms (1-2 minutes). Remove from heat, add mint, pour into a container and refrigerate until chilled. Strain (discard mint and return vanilla pod to syrup), then refrigerate until required. This syrup keeps for up to a month.
  • 02
  • Pulse pineapple in a food processor to finely chop, transfer to a jug, add juices, ginger and vanilla-mint syrup. Add gin and plenty of ice, stir to chill, top up with ginger beer to taste and serve garnished with citrus slices and mint.
