Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 sheets warkha pastry
or 8 sheets filo pastry
olive oil, for frying

Filling

Quantity Ingredient
200g soft goat's cheese
1 orange, juiced and zested
2 tablespoons unblanched almonds, finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon rosemary, finely chopped
2 tablespoons clear runny honey

Sauce

Quantity Ingredient
1 orange, juiced
1 tablespoon clear runny honey

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
ground cinnamon
orange zest

Method

  1. To make the filling, combine the goat's cheese, orange juice and zest, almonds, rosemary and honey in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Take a sheet of warkha and fold the sides in about 4cm to make a 24cm square. Place a quarter of the filling in the centre of a pastry square, then fold the pastry over to form a triangle. Repeat this process with your remaining ingredients to make four more triangular briks.
  3. If using filo pastry, which tends to be a large rectangular shape, cut the eight sheets in half. For each brik, take a stack of four cut sheets and fold them in half to form a square. Make the brik as you do when using warkha pastry, but moisten the edges with a little melted butter or olive oil to make them stick together.
  4. Fill a large frying pan with olive oil to one-third of the way up the side of the pan. Place over a medium heat. When hot, carefully drop the briks into the pan and fry for about 5–7 minutes, turning once, until the pastry is golden brown. Depending on the size of your frying pan, you may need to fry the briks in batches. Once all the briks have been fried, transfer them to serving plates.
  5. Discard the olive oil from the frying pan. To make the sauce, deglaze the pan by adding the orange juice and honey, stirring over a high heat until the sauce thickens. Drizzle the sauce over the briks and serve immediately with a dusting of cinnamon and a sprinkling of orange zest.
