Author: Joanna Cismaru

Serves: 4

Ingredients

For Dough

2¼ cup all purpose flour
½ tsp salt
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
½ cup water

For Filling

1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ lb ground lamb
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
6 oz frozen spinach, thawed and chopped
½ cup fresh mint, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 medium tomato, chopped
lemon wedges and olives to serve

Instructions

  1. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and stir in the yogurt and water. Continue mixing with a spoon until everything is well combined. If the dough is too dry adjust by adding a bit more water, start with a tablespoon at a time.
  2. Flour your work surface and knead the dough for about 3 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Cover with plastic wrap or a clean tea towel and set aside.
  3. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat then add the chopped onion and garlic. Saute onion and garlic for 3 to 4 minutes or until the onion is soft and translucent.
  4. Add the ground lamb to the skillet and break it up with a wooden spoon. Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes, until browned. Stir in the tomato paste, coriander, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Add the spinach, stir everything together and cook for another 2 minutes. Let the meat mixture cool slightly.
  5. In the meantime divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each piece into a rectangle that’s about 12×10 inches.
  6. Spoon about 3 tbsp of the lamb mixture in the middle of the rectangle and spread it out a bit. Add some fresh mint, green onions, fresh parsley, ¼ of the crumbled feta, and some chopped tomato. Fold over the edges of the dough to seal. Repeat with remaining dough pieces.
  7. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Depending on the size of your skillet, add 1 or 2 of the gozleme and cook on each side for about 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Spray more cooking spray as needed.
  8. Cut each gozleme in half diagonally and serve with lemon wedges and olives.

Notes
Another alternative to making these if you do not want to make your own dough, is to use tortillas and make them just like you would make quesadillas, should save you time.

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.
