Morocco 2017 - Recipes


Makes 40 triangles

6½ ounces (200 g) jben or fresh goat’s cheese
¼ c (50 g) butter
Pinch of salt and ground black pepper
Few thyme leaves
2 eggs, beaten
10 sheets waarka or filo pastry
Oil for deep frying

1. Put the jben (or goat’s cheese), butter, salt, pepper, thyme, and beaten eggs in a saucepan. Cook over very low heat, whisking constantly until mixture thickens.
2. Cut each sheet of waarka (or filo) into four long strips, place a spoonful of filling at one short end, fold the corner down to form a triangle, then continue folding at right angles until the end of the strip is reached. To seal the triangle, tuck the end into the last fold like an envelope.
3. In a large pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Deep-fry the cheese triangles, turning regularly, until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes.
4. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
