Latest Recipe: Sigara Börek (Spinach & Feta Cigars)

Today I bring you part two of my Turkish family recipes handed down to me by my new aunty and grandmother. This recipe is for another dish that Yaprak (my partners aunty) made for us in Turkey on that very first night we arrived, and then many times later throughout our trip. These little mouthfuls are absolutely beautiful. The thin pastry is crunchy and the inside is perfectly salted and soft. You can change up the filling to however you like, whether it be to include mushrooms, halloumi, nuts, use only spinach or kale for vegans or even made sweet with a honeyed ricotta. These morsels aren't exactly the healthiest thing in the world but having a treat like this every now and then is definitely not forbidden in my eyes.

You can cook these in the oven or deep fry them - it's completely up to the individual which you choose to use. In both cases they end up crispy and totally delicious so you're not at a loss however you decide to make it. 

These pastries are absolutely beautiful to make if you have family or friends coming over as a delicious snack, or even served up before dinner as an entree. After you make them you can keep them in a container in the fridge or freezer and pull them out when you're ready to cook them. They last a while and are perfect heated the first time and even when reheated!
