Kitchen Recipes

Many of you have been asking for the recipes we have used in class so that you can recreate them at home.   The intention we have is to try and upload some recipes for you each week and we apologise this hasn't happened for a while as access to the website has been down.

Following are some of the delicious recipes from the end of last term.   Enjoy trying them at home and watch this space in the coming weeks for more recipes!

From the Garden: warrigal greens, mint, parsley, chicory

Equipment

Utility knife

Chopping board   and rubber mat

Salad spinner

2 tea towels

3 Large bowls

Measuring cups   and spoons

Measuring jug

Large mixing   spoon

Plastic wrap

2 large frying   pans

Pastry brush

Spatula and   tongs

3 serving   platters and serving tongs

Ingredients

Dough:

1 ½ cups   wholemeal plain flour

1 ½ cups   white plain flour

1 teaspoon salt

80ml olive   oil

185ml water

 

Filling:

20 leaves   warrigal greens

2 stems   fresh mint

2 stems   fresh parsley

10-15 stems   chicory

1 green   shallot or 1 small leek

1 teaspoon   sumac

½ teaspoon   ground allspice

½ teaspoon   salt

¼ teaspoon   ground pepper

 

6 tablespoons   currants

Extra olive   oil for brushing

 

What to do

To make the filling:

  1. Trim away the leaves      from the stems of the warrigal greens, mint and parsley and place stems in      the compost. Thoroughly wash the warrigal green leaves, herbs and chicory,      drying them in the salad spinner. Taking a handful of leaves at a time, use      the utility knife to finely chop all the greens and place in the large      bowl.
  2. Cut leek in half      lengthways and wash well. Slice into 5mm slices and place into bowl with      the greens.
  3. Add the sumac,      allspice, salt and pepper to the bowl of greens and mix well. Give half this      mixture along with half the currants to the other Gozleme group.

To make the dough:

  1. Measure the flours      into a large bowl; use a spoon to mix in the salt.
  2. Measure the oil and      water in a measuring jug.
  3. Have one person,      trickle the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with one hand      to form a dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface for 8-10 minutes or      until the dough looks smooth.
  4. Tip the dough into a      large lightly oiled bowl, turn the dough in the bowl to cover it in oil      then cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Leave to rest for the next class.

To make the Gozleme: Two groups will make and cook three Gozleme

  1. You will form your Gozleme      using the dough made for you by the previous class. At the end, you will      make the dough for the class following you.
  2. Tip out the dough and      divide it into 6 even pieces. Give 3 pieces of dough to the other Gozleme      group.
  3. Dust the workbench      with some flour.
  4. Flatten a piece of      dough (using the heel of your hand) into a rough rectangle and use the      rolling pin to roll it out to a very thin rectangle (about 20cm x 40cm).      Spoon about a quarter of the greens over one half of the rectangle of      dough leaving a 1cm boarder; sprinkle with about a tablespoon of the      currants. Fold over the other half of dough to cover, then crimp the edges      to seal. Use the pastry brush to brush Gozleme with a little olive oil.      Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  5. While the dough is      being shaped, heat both frying pans on a medium to low heat.
  6. Place a Gozleme oiled      side down, into a hot, dry pan and cook for 8 minutes or until bubbled and      browned. Brush top with a little more olive oil then flip it over with      your spatula and cook till the other side is bubbled and well browned.
  7. Using tongs or      spatula, transfer the cooked Gozleme to a chopping board; allow to cool      slightly before using the utility knife to cut into pieces.
  8. Divide Gozleme      between three serving platters to serve.

Crunchy Kale Chips

 

Recipe Source: Dimitra Alfred, Kitchen Specialist, Stanmore Public School

 

From the Garden: Kale

 

Equipment

Salad spinner

2 large baking   trays

Baking paper

Oven mitts

Large bowl

Large mixing   spoon

2 cooling racks

3 serving bowls

Ingredients

 

About 4   stems curly kale

2   tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon   paprika or smoked paprika

½ teaspoon   salt or to taste

 

 

 

What to do

 

  1. Preheat oven to 160C fan forced. Line the large baking      trays with baking paper.
  2. Trim centre stems from kale and place into compost or      chook buckets. Wash leaves thoroughly and spin in salad spinner. Tear      leaves into bite size pieces.
  3. Combine olive oil, paprika and salt in a large bowl. Add      kale leaves and toss to coat in oil mixture.
  4. Spread kale out in a single layer on lined baking trays.      Try to evenly spread out the leaves and not overcrowd them as then they      will not go crisp!
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until leaves are crisp. If they      still look limp after this time, return to the oven for a further 5-10      minutes or until crisp. The leaves may need turning if they are not drying      out evenly.
  6. Place trays onto cooling racks and allow to cool for 5-10      minutes. When cool enough to handle, transfer Kale Chips to three serving      plates for serving.
