  • vegan stuffing: In a medium bowl, mix spinach , leek & zaatar tahini
  • For cheese lover stuffing : mix in a separate mixing bowl and of your favorite shredded with pesto tahini
  • Fill a large bowl that can fit the rice paper with water. Drizzle a little oil, the size of the rice paper, on the working surface.
  • Soak rice paper, one at a time, in water for 20-30 seconds, until playable. Shake water off and place on drizzled oil on the working surface. Put a spoonful of the stuffing : veggies or the Cheese Filling along the middle of the rice paper & Fold in half. Place on the baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the rice papers.
  • Use a fork to gently poke holes at the top of each burekas. This will prevent it from exploding or leaking the filling in the oven. Put egg yolk in a small bowl, add 2 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon of oil and mix. Use pastry brush to brush burekas with egg, then sprinkle with sesame ( if you don’t eat eggs, try butter or coconut oil, olive oil )
