Through this morning tea we were able to raise another $160 for the Heart Foundation bringing us to a total of $8,300! I love doing these morning teas and spending time in the kitchen trying out new recipes. Especially because we have a different country or continent every time it makes it so much more fun!
The New York Marathon is also approaching with only about 5 months to go! I am so looking forward to it and just know it will be an amazing experience!
Here is the recipe for the gozleme that I made for the morning tea:
For the dough you need the following:
- 200g milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 150g natural yoghurt
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- 600g flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon rapadura sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- First put the milk, egg, yoghurt, oil and yeast into the Thermomix and process on speed 6 for 4 seconds.
- Next warm everything in the bowl for 3 minutes at 50 degrees at speed 2.
- Put the remainder of the ingredients into the bowl and knead for 2 minutes on interval speed.
- Leave the dough to rest for 30 minutes and then divide into 16 portions (to make 16 gozleme)
To make the filling you need the following:
- 150g cheddar cheese
- handful mint
- handful parsley
- baby spinach to your liking (I used about 2-3 handfuls)
- olive oil to brown the meat
- 5 cloves garlic
- 1 onion
- 1/2 teaspoon of the following spices: coriander, cumin and paprika
- 250g mince of your choice
- 1 tablespoon flour
- salt and pepper to taste
- juice of one lemon
- First grind the cheese on speed 9 for 6 seconds and set aside.
- Next chop the herbs and spinach on speed 6 for 2 seconds and also set aside.
- Next put oil, garlic, onion and spices into the bowl and process on speed 6 for three seconds.
- Cook for 3 minutes on Varoma speed 1.
- Next add the mince and flour and cook on speed 1 at 100 degrees for 8 minutes.
- Season with salt and pepper and lemon juice.
- Cook for another 2 minutes on 100 degrees reverse speed 2.
- Leave the meat mixture to cool.
To assemble the gozleme roll out the dough into rounds and place 1 tablespoon of each the cheese, the meat mixture and the green mixture on it, squeeze the edges together.
Finish the gozleme of by frying them in a pan and serve with lemon wedges.
During the Middle Eastern morning tea these went really fast and everyone loved them. One of the things I love about my Thermomix is definitely that it gives me the flexibility to make everything from scratch and I know exactly what is in it.
What is your favourite Middle Eastern recipe?
Have an awesome long weekend!
