Dolma, Sarma or Stuffed Vine Leaves

It's called many things dolma, sarma or stuffed wine leaves. I have tested this recipe many times thanks to the bags of fresh wine leaves my brother carried from Istanbul. This is the version that is vegan with rice and herb filling. Ingredients 3 medium onions (about 350gr) 150 ml extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoon pine nuts 1 teaspoon fine salt 1 1/2 teaspoon caster sugar 240gr easycook long grain rice, washed and drained 1 1/2 cup water 2 tablespoon blackcurrants 1 bunch 25gr dill chopped finely 1 bunch 25gr parsley chopped finely 15 mint leaves chopped finely 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon allspice 1/2 teaspoon blackpepper 2 tablespoon lemon juice 1/2 lemon sliced About 100 wine leave

Spinach and Feta Börek

This is one of my most baked recipes in the kitchen. I make it a lot, I mean a lot! It’s filo pastry with a mature spinach and feta filling. It took me a lot of trial and failures to get it to this state as the filo pastry in UK is very different from the fresh filo that you get to make börek in Turkey. I also use mature spinach which I get from farmers market, but it is ok to substitute it with baby spinach or even frozen leaf spinach, but not the frozen chopped spinach as it turns out like baby food with that kind. Ingredients 220gr pack of ready rolled filo pastry 1 tablespoon olive oil 250 gr mature spinach washed and chopped to 2 cm ribbons 100 gr feta cheese 2 eggs 50 ml olive oil 75

Salmon with Cavolo Nero Noodles and Sesame sauce

I came across this white fish with sesame noodles recipe when i was flipping through my latest issue of BBC Goodfood magazine, looking for a quick recipe to try. It was a quick & easy recipe and looked like the salmon with broccoli noodles recipe that I always make. I made the recipe swapping spinach with Cavolo Nero and using salmon instead of white fish. Only because those were what I had in the fridge. We all loved it especially the sesame sauce. So I will put my version of the recipe here to come back and do it again and again. Ingredients 2 x salmon fillet For the noodles; 100 gr (half pack) soba noodles 2 tablespoons olive oil 150 gr Cavolo Nero or kale, deveined washed, chopped into 2
