Turkish Pide, Ezme and Hummus.

The recipes and flavours of Turkey are vibrant, fresh and colourful-sunshine on a plate.  I’ve never travelled to Turkey but I’ve spent a lot of time in Northern Cyprus (Turkish part) and love mezzes.

Here are some of my favourite Turkish recipes that are easy and cheap to make at home.

Vegetarian Pide

Ingredients

Dough

20g fresh yeast

100ml warm water

100ml warm milk

400-500g all purpose flour

1/2 tbsp yogurt/ plain

1 pinch sugar

1 rich salt

1 egg white

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp butter

Garnish

1 egg yolk

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp olive oil

Filling

1 tomatoes finely chopped

1 capia pepper

2 green banana pepers

1 tbsp tomato paste

5-6 stalks parsley chopped

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes.

Vegetarian and meat Turkish Pide.

Preparation method:

  1. Place the yeast in a small bowl add warm water and warm milk.  Mix well wait until the mixture becomes bubbly.
  2. Put 3/4’s of the flour in a large mixing pot and in the middle pair the yeast and water.
  3. Start to knead.  Add all the other crust material one by one, while kneading.  The dough should become a non sticky ball, neither too hard nor too soft. Knead for about 10 minutes.
  4. Turn the dough into a large ball.  Sprinkle with some flour so it does not stick.  Cover with a clean kitchen towel.  Set aside for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Chop all the peppers and the tomato to small cubes.  Sauce for 2 minutes.  Close the heat.
  6. Add all the remaining filling ingredients together and mix well.  Your filling is ready. When time is up uncover the dough.  If you notice the dough has expanded and there are cracks on it, its a sign the dough is ready.
  7. Knead it again for a few minutes to let the air in the dough to get out.
  8. When time is up uncover the dough if you notice the dough has expanded and there are cracks on it, it is a sign the dough is ready.
  9. Knead it again for a few minutes to let the air in the dough to get out.
  10. Then make small balls out of the main dough ball in walnut sizes. Cover with the kitchen towel again.
  11. Take a ball, sprinkle with some flour and then using a rolling pin obtain a flat oval long rectangular sheet, a bit larger than a hand.  don’t switch sides, it will be easier to form the shape this way.  Spread just enough filling on top of the sheet, leave the sides clear.  Then curl corners and flip sides inwards so the filling does not spill around during baking.
  12. Continue till the dough and filling is finished.
  13. In a small bowl mis the egg yolk yogurt and olive oil.  Then using an egg brush spread this mixture on sides and corners.
  14. Bake until golden on top and bottom in a preheated oven at 200 degrees celsius for about twenty minutes.

Ezme

Crushed tomato and pepper paste/salad.

Turkish cuisine is known also for its ability to create surprisingly delicious flavours with few and basic ingredients.  This paste/salad is a good example of such a recipe.

Ezme can be served as a starter (meze) or as a side dish next to kebabs, fish or other meats.

Ingredients

2 tomatoes

1 cucumber

1 onion

1 capia pepper

1 banana peper

1 chilli pepper optional

5-6 stalks parsley

1 tbsp pepper paste

1/2 lemon juice

1 rich salt to taste

1 rich red pepper flakes

1 tsp pomegranate sauce

2-3 fresh mint leaves or dry mint flakes.

1-3 garlic cloves.

1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin.

Preparation Method:

  1. Peel the tomatoes.  Take out the seed part – you may use it in other such dishes as a soup another salad or pasta sauce.  Chop the tomatoes as tiny as possible.  You can choose to use a food processor.  Transfer to a medium sized bowl.
  2. Do the same with peppers.  Add to the tomatoes.
  3. Peel and chop well the onion and the cucumber.  Add to bowl.
  4. Chop well the parsley and add.
  5. Mix all together.
  6. Place in a wine colander onto similar sized bowl.
  7. Put all the vegetable mix into the colander and squeeze out the excess water of the vegetables by pressing down either with your hand or a wooden spoon.
  8. Save the excess vegetable water for preparing other dishes, such as a soup.
  9. The drier this salad is the better.
  10. Add all the other spices and ingredients.  Mix well and place the salad in a serving dish.  Leave in the fridge for at least an hour so all the flavours are absorbed and the salad chills.
  11. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.  Taste and adjust spices before serving.

Hummus

Preparing hummus takes no time or special effort but still many people buy ready made hummus from stores. There is a lazy women market in Gaziantep, Turkey.  They sell everything ready, peeled and chopped. You might think no body would shop in a market with such a name, but on the contrary, its always very busy.  This is a quick and easy recipe that even appeals to those buyers.

Ingredients

500g canned chickpeas

1 tbsp tahini

1 tbsp plain yogurt

1/2 lemon juice

1-2 garlic cloves crushed

2tbsp extra virgin-olive oil

a pinch of salt to taste

pinch black pepper to taste

pinch of paprika

1 tsp red pepper flakes to garnish.

Instructions

  1. Rinse the chickpeas
  2. Peel off the chickpeas to obtain a smoother hummus.
  3. First process the tahini, the yogurt and lemon juice in a food processor for a minute. Then add the olive oil, salt, black pepper and crushed garlic cloves and turn on the food processor again for another minute.
  4. Finally add the chickpeas to the food processor and continue until the mixture is smooth.
  5. If the hummus is thicker than desired add some more olive oil, tahini or yogurt.
  6. Taste and adjust spices.
  7. Pour into a serving dish. Garnish with additional olive oil and red pepper flakes.
  8. Hummus can be served as paste – a starter – meme or side-dish.
  9. It’s possible to keep in the fridge for several days.

Why I love Kannaway CBD Oil Products.

Kannaway’s beautiful CBD products.  All photos taken at Jess and the beanstalk Epsom.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) Regulates

Discomfort                             Cognition

Sleep                                     Immune Function

Mood                                     Inflammation

Mobility                                  Neuroprotection

Digestion                               Cardiovascular Function

Experts believe that the function of the ECS is the regulation of homeostasis.

Research has shown that cannabinoids are able to target damaged cells without affecting normal cells.  The ECS acts as a biological defence system.

Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body.  Two types: CB1 and CB2.  CB1 receptors are found in the brain and nervous system. CB2 receptors are primarily in the organs and immune system.

It has been show that Cannabidiol (CBD) strengthens and improves the efficacy of mitochondria, the power source for every cell in the body.

Kannaways’s beautiful essential oils.

What are Cannaboids?

Cannaboids are the hundreds of compounds in cannabis that give the plant its unique properties.  Cannabinoids interact with your body’s native endocannabinoid system to promote overall homeostasis.

Hemp oil is more than just a good source of cannabinoids.  Our full-spectrum hemp oil is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, essential fatty acids, proteins, fibres, terpenes and flavonoids, making it a versatile daily dietary supplement.

CBD and THC are both found in the cannabis plant family but play very different roles.

Kannaway refuses to compromise on quality.  Ingredients are sourced from the horticultural leader in the heart of Europe where the soil is well nourished and devoid of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilisers.  Kannaway also help to empower people in the community financially by giving them the opportunity to be a brand ambassador.

Emma’s Favourite Kannaway Products.

I love SALVE. The smell is incredible and leaves my skin beautifully nourished.

Salve

I love this moisturising skin emollient that gives the appearance of healthy and youthful looking skin.  The smell is incredible but you have to experience it for yourself no words will give it justice.  A unique bi-bond herbal formulation that works synergistically with hemp CBD oil for ultimate results.  The combination of Hemp CBD oil and proprietary East Asian botanicals gives my skin rich nourishing moisture.

Kannaway pure gold, a bestseller.

Pure Gold – Full Spectrum Hemp oil Liquid

One of Kannaway’s best sellers, this beautiful golden coloured oil is an excellent daily source of CBD with non-detectable amounts of THC.  Each 120ml bottle of Pure Gold liquid contains 1000mg of CBD over 33mg of CBD per serving -combined with MCT oil, derived from sustainably sourced coconut oil, and can be added to smoothies or other foods and beverages.

My favourite travel salve.

Travel Salve

I’m a big fan of salve and carry a travel sized one in my handbag at all times. Kannaway salve is for everyone, whether you live an active lifestyle or want youthful healthy looking skin.  Perfect for all the nasty nat bites this time of year.  I like using mine as a lip balm and the beautiful scent helps to clear my airways and help me stay calm during my working day.

I would never be without Kannaway CBD gum to calm my nerves.

Kannaway Hemp CBD chewing gum.

I carry Kannaway chewing gum in my handbag at all times.  As an occupational therapist trained in sensory integration I understand that the jaw is the most powerful muscle in the body and that chewing is scientifically proven to have a calming effect on the nervous system.  This is why some special needs schools allow students to chew gum during lessons because there is evidence based research to show it can aid concentration especially in children with Autism and ADHD.  People who suffer from generalised anxiety disorder can also benefit from chewing gum.

Kannaway’s Hemp CBD gum freshens breath.  I can vouch that you’ll find mental tranquility in each piece of Kannaways cool mint flavoured gum.  Free of sugar, gluten, vegan and non-GMO, hemp CBD gum was developed by scientists for efficient absorption of cannabinoids like CBD.  Kannaways’ CBD gum is my to go to gum for calming my own nerves.
