EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE

VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN

Hi everyone!

The most common type of borek is that with a filling made of minced meat that, in the predominantly Muslim countries, is never pork (https://wordpress.com/post/laborsettadelledonne.blog/24178).

Another variation is that it is prepared with a filling based on feta and spinach. To remain unchanged is the basic dough, the yufka, or phyllo dough.

If you want the vegan version, you just have to do it without the feta cheese.

Let’s start:

SPINACH BUREK (TURKEY)

Ingredients for 4 people: 1 pack of phyllo dough – 500 g of spinach – 200 g of feta – 1 onion – 3 tablespoons of oil – salt – pepper – a bit of milk

Preparation:

Put a little oil in a pan and brown the finely chopped onion until it is tender and transparent.

Then add the spinach, cover with the lid and let them wither without adding water. When they are tender, discover and evaporate the excess liquids – which could compromise the success of the dish.

Let them cool, and add the feta crumbled with your hands (for the vegan version, omit this step); season with salt and pepper.

Unroll the sheets of phyllo dough, and overlap two by brushing in the middle with melted butter (oil for the vegan version). Lay with a little filling at two cm from the long edge so as to form a strip, then roll tightly.

Arrange the cylinder obtained inside the cake tin, starting from the center and forming a sort of spiral that you will go to complete gradually preparing other rolls with the remaining ingredients.

Brush with milk and bake for 20 minutes at 200° C. If you like, you can decorate the surface with sesame seeds before serving.

Enjoy your meal!

Saving at home – Kufta (Turkey)

EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE

Hi everyone!

The Turkish kufta or köfte is a meatball from the Middle East and South Asia. The word comes from the Persian language “kūfta” which means to “beat” o “grind” or just simply meatball.

Usually kufta is served with pita or naan though, they would be just as delicious stuffed in a crispy sandwich and topped with tzatziki and a bed of lettuce.

Let’s start:

KUFTA (TURKEY)

Ingredients for 4 people: 3 tablespoons chopped red onion – 3 tablespoons chopped herbs (parsley mix, coriander and mint) – 2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped – 1 1/4 teaspoons salt – 1 teaspoon cumin – 1/2 teaspoon black pepper – 450g lamb or ground beef – 1 teaspoon olive oil

Preparation:

Mix the walnuts, onions, chopped herbs, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper together in the bowl of a kitchen robot equipped with the flat blade and mix until you have a homogeneous dough.

Add the chopped lamb and beat until all the ingredients are incorporated (about 1 minute).

Cover the bowl with cling film and leave to marinate for 30 minutes to an hour.

Take a handful of meat, make an oblong and sausage-like shape and place it on a skewer.

You can also shape the meat like meatballs and cook them on a hot pan without skewers.

Heat a large grill or barbecue over medium-high heat and cover generously with oil. Once the oil is sizzling, add the skewers and cook until deep browned on one side and then on the other (3-4 minutes per side).

Enjoy your meal!
