>From Food from the Arab World Here is another good dish for meatless days. Lebanese cooks often put these pastries on large round tin trays and carry the trays to the bakery to be cooked. The steady, intense heat bf the commercial oven produces a light and crisp pastry. Pastry: Dissolve yeast in a tablespoon of tepid water. Stir in olive oil and the flour mixed with salt. Add enough cold water to make a stiff dough. Cover and let stand 30 minutes. Roll out on floured board to quarter inch thickness. Cut in circles with biscuit cutter. Put a tablespoon of filling on each pastry. Fold over in a triangular shape and press edges together firmly. Place on well oiled baking sheet and bake in hot oven until very lightly browned. Pinch each pastry open slightly and sprinkle the exposed filling with a few drops of lemon juice. Serve with lemon wedges. Filling: Wash spinach. Shake to dry. Chop finely. Mix with other ingredients, adding enough lemon juice and sumac to give a pleasantly sharp tang. Fills about 50 turnovers. Posted to JEWISH-FOOD digest V97 #026 by Daniella De Picciotto
