Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place yogurt in a large bowl and stir in salt. Gradually add flour, a few tablespoons at a time, until you have a stiff dough. Turn dough out onto a floured work surface and knead with your hands until soft and slightly tacky. Place the dough in a lightly floured bowl, cover with a clean tea towel, and allow to stand for at least 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, warm a frying pan over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then add spinach, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir, about 5 minutes. Take off of the heat and allow to cool, about 10 minutes. Stir in halloumi, scallions, and Italian seasoning.

  • Divide the dough into 4 equal balls. Roll out each ball into a 10- to 12-inch circle on a floured surface. Place some spinach filling on one side of each circle and fold the dough over. Seal the edges with a fork.

  • Heat a large frying pan over medium-low heat. Combine melted butter and 1 tablespoon oil in a bowl, and brush onto both sides of the gozleme. Cook each gozleme in the hot pan until golden, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

  • Cut each gozleme into 4 slices and finish with several squeezes of lemon juice.
