Spinach and Cheese Gozleme Recipe

Spinach and Cheese Gozleme

Gozleme - traditional Turkish dish made of a thin, soft pastry dough filled with spinach and cheese. This recipe is very easy to make and no kneading or proofing required.  


For the dough:

3 cups (375g) Flour

1 teaspoon Salt

3/4 cup (180ml) Milk 

1/3 cup (80m) water

For the filling:

Olive oil 

1 Onion, chopped 

400g Spinach

300g Feta cheese  

Salt to taste 

Pepper to taste 


1. Make the dough: in a large bowl mix flour and salt. Add water, milk and mix until dough is formed. Knead the dough for 4-5 minutes, until smooth and soft. Place the dough in a bowl, cover and allow to rest while making the filling.

2. Make the filling: in a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil, add chopped onion and sate for 5-6 minutes. Add chopped spinach and cook until wilted.

3. Transfer the filling into a large bowl, crumble feta cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste. Mex well.

4. Make the Gozlame: take the dough and divide it into 6 equal parts and shape each part into a ball.

5. Roll out each ball into ball into a thin rectangle. Place 2-3 tablespoons of filling the center of the dough, leave about4cm of space around the edges. Fold the edges over the filling.

6. Fry the Gozlame: heat a large skillet or a pan over medium-high heat, place the gozlame on the skillet and cook until golden brown on both sides. Brush each side with a bit of olive oil or melted butter (optional). Repeat with the rest of the dough and filling.

7. Serve and enjoy!
