Equipment

  • Mixing bowl
  • Small bowl x2
  • Plate x2
  • Chopping board + kitchen knife
  • frying pan
  • Rolling Pin
  • Pestle and mortar (optional)

Ingredients

Main ingredients

  • 100 g firm tofu (vegan) or halloumi (vegetarian)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup self raising flour
  • 45 ml oil – any

Flatbreads

  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Pinch sugar/salt

Fiery Feta Tzatziki

  • 1/2 cup Vegan yogurt (or Greek yogurt for vegetarian)
  • 100 g vegan hard cheese (or feta for vegetarian)
  • 1 green chili or 1 tbsp hot sauce
  • 1 cloves garlic

Garnish

  • 1 vine tomato diced
  • 1/2 tin chickpeas lightly crushed

Instructions

Flatbreads

  • Combine all the flatbread ingredients in a mixing bowl and combine with a fork until you reach a ‘scraggy mess’. Tip onto a clean lightly dusted work surface and kneed with your hands until you reach a dough-like consistency; adding more water/milk or flour until it comes together.
  • Divide the dough into small golf ball sized pieces and roll out until they are ¼ inch thick (if you don't have a rolling pin – a bottle of wine works!). Heat a dry frying pan and lay one flat bread at a time, cooking for a couple of minutes each side. Wrap in a towel or cover to keep warm.

Fiery Tzatziki

  • Chop the chili then use a pestle and mortar or the side of a knife with a pinch of salt to crush the chili as much as possible. Add all the ingredients, including the chili to a bowl with a pinch of salt and mix thoroughly until combined. Taste, adding more chili, salt or lemon juice to your preference.

Tofu version (vegan)

  • Place the block of tofu between two plates and put a heavyweight on top – leave this for 15 minutes to expel moisture which will help firm up the tofu.
  • Once done, pour away excess liquid, slice the tofu into 1 inch thick strips and season with salt, pepper, any spices you have and dust heavily in flour. In a hot frying pan, add a splash of oil and lay the tofu in the pan – fry on a high heat for a minute each side until golden.

Halloumi version (vegetarian)

  • If using halloumi, cut into 1 inch slabs. Season with pepper any spices you have and dust in a little flour. In a hot frying pan, add a splash of oil and lay the halloumi into the pan – cook for 1 minute each side or until golden.

Assemble

  • Spoon a streak of tzatziki over the flatbread, lay the tofu or halloumi on top, scatter over the garnish ingredients, any fresh herbs you might have and wrap it up and take a bite!

FLEXITARIAN

NOTE:
  • Buy supermarket brand produce – it’s cheaper and your chef instructor is awesome; it’ll still taste great 🙂
  • If you have at home any paprika, cumin or fresh herbs – bring them with you; we’ll put them to good use. 
  • Salt – don’t forget your salt, whatever they say; everything tastes better with it.
