Friselle-what a passion!
Did you know that friselle have ancient origins and that their donut shape is not accidental but came about because of transportation and storage needs?
The friselle, since they kept for a long time thanks to the simple ingredients such as water, durum wheat semolina flour, salt, yeast and cooked twice, were strung on a string then closed almost to form a necklace so that they would be practical to hang and consumed over time or carried by sailors who, when it was time to eat them, would soak them in sea water and then season them with oil and “enrich” them with poor foods at their disposal.

Recipe in Detail

For 4 flaxseed and sunflower seed friselle.

  • 6 dried cherry tomatoes in oil

  • 6 or 7 pitted spicy green olives

  • 60 g of tuna in oil

  • e.v.o. oil

  • young arugula for garnish

  • Using a blender, coarsely chop the dried tomatoes in oil and olives, finally add the drained tuna and give it a couple of blender strokes.

  • Run the friselle under cold tap water, counting to three, after which stuff them with the chopped cherry tomatoes, olives and tuna. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and garnish with young arugula leaves.

  • Why did I write to count to three? Because that is the right time to avoid the risk of having friselle that are too hard or soggy and would become soft and break as soon as they are picked up.


doses are approximate and vary according to one’s taste.
