  • Place a tea towel over the top and sit in a warm and sunny place for 5 minutes or until bubbles start to form on the surface.

  • Divide the dough into four portions and place onto an oven tray before covering with a tea towel. Sit in a warm spot for 20 - 30 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Punch down the down and roll into a thin rectangle, add approximately ¼ of the baby spinach leaves and feta to half of the dough and cover. Pinch the edges of the dough together to seal.
  • Place 2 tablespoon of olive oil (or ghee) into a frying pan over a medium heat and cook for 2 - 3 minutes on each side.

Notes

  • You can double this recipe. Please ensure you do not exceed the 'maximum fill' line if making in a Thermomix.
  • If you find your dough is too sticky, add a little extra flour to it when dividing into four.
  • I like to cook my Gozleme in ghee (I use the recipe from Cookidoo to make mine) but you can also use extra virgin olive oil.
  • The cooked Gozleme can be frozen.
  • You can play with the quantities of of cheese if you wish. We also love these gozlemes with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese too.
