  • 50g pinenuts, toasted & chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 3 teaspoons ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1½ teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt
  • 300g baby spinach leaves
  • ½ cup hot water
  • 200g feta, crumbled

  • To make the dough, sift flour with baking powder, paprika and salt into a mixing bowl. Sift again to make sure the baking powder is mixed through evenly. Add yoghurt and mix until the dough comes together. Flour behaves differently in different environments so you may need to add another ½ a cup of flour. You want a slightly sticky consistency.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5–8 minutes, until no longer sticky. Add more flour as you knead. It is ready when the top of the dough bounces back a little when pressed. Cut dough into 8.
  • In a dry frypan, toast the pinenuts on a medium high heat until golden, remove and roughly chop. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium–high heat. Add onion and cook for a few minutes until softened, then add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add spices until aromatic then add spinach, pinenuts and water and continue cooking until spinach has wilted (1 minute or so). Taste and add more salt or chilli if needed. Allow to cool slightly then stir through crumbled feta.
  • On a lightly floured surface (ideally a wooden board so the dough doesn’t stick), roll out a portion of the dough, as thin as possible. Spoon a quarter of the spinach mixture onto half the dough, then top with mint, parsley and spring onions. Fold the dough over the top of the filling and seal the edges. Lightly roll out to remove air bubbles. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  • Heat the BBQ on high, then drizzle with olive oil and transfer Gozleme to the hotplate. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until the dough has browned and bubbled slightly.
