1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, finely chopped
45g (1/4 cup) sultanas
1 1/2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
200g (1 3/4 cups) grated 
sweet potato
250g pkt microwave 
brown rice, cooked
2 tbs chopped pistachio kernels
1⁄2 cup fresh coriander leaves, chopped
100g soft reduced-fat feta, crumbled
8 sheets filo pastry
70g (1/4 cup) low-fat 
Greek yoghurt
1 tsp pomegranate molasses
Salad leaves, to serve 


Step 1 Preheat panggangan to 180C/160C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Reserve 1/4 tsp each of cumin and cinnamon. Set aside.

Step 2 Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Cook onion and sultanas, stirring, for 3 minutes or until soft. Stir in ginger and remaining spices for 1 minute or until aromatic. Stir in potato for 3 minutes or until soft. Stir in rice and pistachio for 1 minute. Season. Transfer to bowl. Cool for 5 minutes. Stir in coriander and feta.

Step 3 Lay filo on a clean work surface. Cover with a clean, damp tea towel. Working with 1 sheet at a time, spray with olive oil. Fold in half horizontally. Place a rounded 1⁄3 cupful of rice mixture on right-hand bottom corner of pastry. Flatten to form a triangular shape. Fold pastry diagonally across filling to other edge, to form a triangle. Continue folding to end of strip, retaining a neat triangle shape. Spray with oil. Repeat with remaining pastry and rice mixture. Sprinkle with reserved spices. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden and crisp.

Step 4 Place yoghurt in bowl. Swirl through molasses. Serve triangles 
with yoghurt mixture and salad leaves.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
