Miroloto (Vegetable Bread)


  • 1 kg maize flour
  • 250 g butter
  • 30 g salt
  • 30 g baking powder
  • 2.5 cups water
  • 250 g of dark green cabbage leaves (finely chopped)
  • 250 g of chard (finely chopped)
  • 1 medium onion (finely chopped)


Mix the flour, salt and baking powder. Form a hollow in the centre and toss in diced butter. Gradually pour in the water and stir thoroughly into the butter. Add the other ingredients and mix into a dough. Place the dough into a greased saucepan and cook over moderate heat for 40 minutes.

This is a typical dish of the Black Sea region but unfortunately it’s not known well in the other regions of Turkey.
