Tiganites Dough


  • 1 pound organic white flour
  • 1 tablespoon dry yeast
  • 1 ½ cups lukewarm water
  • 2 tablespoons of Fancy Peasant GEVOO
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • Salt


  • Make a hole in the middle of all your dry ingredients and pour all liquid ingredients in. Mix.
  • Transfer dough to a floured kitchen surface and knead into a soft dough, adding some extra flour if sticky
  • Knead into a large dough ball add back into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel
  • Let rest somewhere warm for about 30 minutes; it will double in size. (during this time you can make your filling.)
  • On a floured surface roll your dough out into an even shaped log. ( think French baguette)
  • Divide dough into 6- 8 equal pieces (about 3 inches each )
  • Knead these pieces into small dough balls (they should be soft, malleable and smooth) use more flour until you get this consistency
  • Open each dough ball by gently rolling out your ball with the rolling pin.
  • Using a small plate, press into your dough to mold out circles
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of filling to one side, before folding the dough in half
  • Firmly press the edges together with your fingers and then repeat using a fork to press and seal edges
  • Heat a generous glug of GEVOO to cover the bottom of a pan on medium-high fire and cook for 2 minutes on both sides until golden brown.
