what you’ll need to prepare The Turkish Gozleme
The Perfect Pairing
Consider the following pairings to perfect the overall experience
Considering we’re having a Turkish meal, why not go all out and add something else that’s Turkish? Aryan is a traditional Turkish drink that’s popular across various areas in the Middle East and Central Asia.
It’s known for its refreshing qualities and great health benefits. In Turkey, people like to consume it with meals, especially during the warm months.
Another Turkish dish you can insert here is the cacık, a dish similar to the Greek Tzatziki. It’s one of the many staples in Turkish cuisine, often served as a soup or a side dish to appetizers.
Because the main ingredients in cacık are cucumber and yogurt, they guarantee a fantastic cooling effect, especially in hot weather.
Most importantly, though, this provides a mouthwatering contrast against the savory gozleme!
You can add some action to your Turkish gozleme by including a couple of grilled veggies on the side!
Great choices here are bell peppers, zucchini, onions, tomatoes, and some mushrooms.
You should slice them into thin pieces or cut them into small cubes so they’re easy to grill. Also, don’t forget to marinate or brush them with olive oil before you grill them. For an extra kick, you can use rosemary or thyme!
For those of you who enjoy the smokiness grilling offers or don’t feel like cooking much, you can enjoy vegetables as they are.
You can slice a tomato, white onion, and cucumber next to your gozleme plate for a fresh and juicy addition! Adding a couple of olives as well as sprinkling some thyme and rosemary on top of the vegetables will enhance the flavors and create a delightful visual appeal!
Quick note: If you didn’t realize, the previous pairings aren’t mutually exclusive! You can enjoy all four with the Turkish gozleme or pick one and make the best of it. It’s your choice!
You too can make it!
