Pea and ham soup

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.

Stir-fried black fungus with ginger, garlic stems and snow peas


We love the crunch of snow peas combined with the soft texture of the black fungus. This stir-fry is great served with fish.

You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced on a mandolin 20 gm ginger, cut into julienne ½ bunch garlic stems, cut into batons 150 gm snow peas, trimmed 1 tsp bean sauce 60 ml (¼ cup) chicken stock 1 tbsp Shaoxing wine 1 tbsp light soy sauce 100 gm black fungus, torn into bite-sized pieces Handful of snow pea leaves To serve: sesame oil and steamed jasmine rice (optional)

Method

  • 01
  • Heat oil in a large wok over high heat, add garlic and ginger and stir-fry until just golden, but not browned (5 seconds). Add garlic stems and stir-fry until starting to turn golden (1-2 minutes), then add snow peas and bean sauce, stir to combine, then add stock and toss vegetables occasionally until almost tender but still crunchy (1-2 minutes). Stir in Shaoxing wine, soy sauce and ¼ tsp coarsely ground white pepper, then add fungus and snow pea leaves, and toss to just combine. Drizzle with sesame oil to taste and serve with steamed rice.

Note Bean sauce is made from fermented soy bean and is available from Asian supermarkets. We prefer the Fu Chi brand.
