Turkish Golzeme, a family favourite, and for good reason! These Pulled Lamb, Mint & Goat Feta Golzeme, are delicious.
Gözleme is a traditional savory Turkish flatbread and pastry dish. The dough is usually unleavened which means it's made only with flour, salt, and water. In this case gluten-free flour and no yeast.
A first sight these delicious foldovers can look a little intimidating to make, maybe a bit time-consuming but we promise it is none of the above.
They are so easy to make.
Simply mix the dough ingredients, set aside and in the meantime combine all the filling ingredients together in a bowl. Then when its ready divide them into smaller pieces, roll them out on parchment paper add the ingredients to half over the rolled dough, fold it off and cook on a griddle pan until warm and toasty!

Rosemary is most commonly known for its ability to boost memory and improve mood. It can also aid in treating Alzheimer’s, reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and protect the immune system.
