Veggie-packed gozleme

My model makes use of an easy and forgiving dough, with paprika and plenty of olive oil. It can at all times work, even whether it is barely over- or undercooked.

No sauce required!

Orange flans

Rising up, this was the dessert my mum would make on a regular basis. It’s very genuine. A bit like a Spanish model of creme brulee, it’s a set custard with an insane orange flavour. I like to recommend making these actually small, utilizing broad, shallow ceramic dishes somewhat than dariole moulds or muffin trays. A thinner floor permits for extra caramelisation they usually’ll steam and set very quick.

You may omit the Cointreau within the caramel in the event you like, however a lot of the alcohol will burn off anyway so that they’ll nonetheless be positive to share with the household.
