Mushroom & Thyme Rollin’

I originally wanted to make a mushroom and thyme pizza, but then I decided to put a twist on my idea – literally. In Turkey, we have a traditional dish called “börek”, which is meat or cheese stuffed pastry, with many variations across the country. You won’t find a dairy-free or meatless so easily, unless you make your own.

You could use your own store bought dough, or use the recipe I include, although the recipe I list is enough to make up to 10-15 servings. The filling recipe is just suitable for one, so depending on how many people are eating, adjust the two recipes accordingly. I made the entire dough recipe because I want to use the rest for a pizza later this week.

Mushroom Stuffed Dough Twirl

by Aylin @ Glow Kitchen

Cook Time: 25-30 minutes

Keywords: fry saute bake main dinner vegan vegetarian mushrooms whole wheat flour thyme

Ingredients (Filling makes 1 serving; dough makes 10-15)

For the Dough

  • 1.5 cups whole-wheat flour (give or take depending on conditions)
  • 1.5 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1 tsp salt

For the Filling

  • 1 cup crimini mushrooms, chopped
  • Handful of fresh thyme (without stems)
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

For Presentation

  • Drizzle olive oil
  • Thyme leaves
  • Red pepper flakes

Instructions

For the dough, in a large bowl, add to the lukewarm water the salt and yeast. Add the whole-wheat flour in 1/2 cup increments until the mixture thickens. You may find yourself exceeding the recommended flour amount. Feel it out.

Knead the dough for about 10 minutes on a floured surface until it smoothens and can form a pretty little dough ball. Place into a bowl that has sides covered in olive oil (to prevent sticking), and cover with a moist towel. Store in a warm place until the dough doubles in size – approximately 1 hour.

You know it’s ready when you poke into the dough and the hole you create doesn’t puff back up.

For the filling, chop the onions, separate the thyme from its stems and chop the mushrooms.

Begin to sauté the onion in 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat with salt and pepper. When the onion just starts to become translucent, add the mushrooms and thyme. Sauté another 2 minutes, or until the mushrooms cook through.

To stuff the dough, grab 1 handful of the dough, which will count as one serving.

Work with the dough alongside whole-wheat flour to help prevent sticking. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to make a flat sheet, about 1/2-inch thick. Poke into the dough to prevent air pockets as you spread its area.

Yes, I’m using a glass water bottle as my rolling pin. I don’t own a proper one Smile.

Evenly coat the dough with the mushroom mixture. It will look scant, but you will be rolling the dough, so there will be overlaps of the mixture, which concentrates the filling while eating. Roll the dough over the mixture and unto itself until you reach the other edge.

Take the right end of the log and curl it upwards and to the left, rolling it until it reaches the other end, forming a circle.

Put on a baking dish, brush with olive oil and bake in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes, or until browned and the dough is cooked through.
