Essential Fillings for a Mind-Blowing Kumpir

Kumpir is a Turkish recipe commonly sold as street food in Istanbul. While a simple baked potato isn’t revolutionary, what makes this recipe so exciting is the toppings. The result is a loaded baked potato that’s as filling as it is delicious.

  • Cheese and butter: Before adding any other fillings to the kumpir, a generous amount of cheese and butter is essential. Using a fork and knife, carefully slit the freshly baked potato in two and mash in the butter and cheese until soft and creamy.
  • Protein: Shredded beef or chicken work well for this Turkish recipe. For a vegetarian option, try legumes like lentils, chickpeas or black beans.
  • Veggies: For a lighter meal try fresh salad ingredients like rocket, spinach, sweet corn, fresh tomatoes or pomegranate seeds. Fried mushrooms make for a heartier kumpir, while pickled cabbage, jalapenos or grilled peppers are also great veggie options.
  • Sauce: You can’t go wrong with a creamy cheese sauce, and hummus or guacamole are delicious options, too. Tzatziki also goes well with kumpir, while spicy chili sauce gives this Turkish recipe an extra kick.
