Gozlemes are one of our family treasures, filled with many fond memories as they have been passed down through several generations. This recipe reminds me of family, laughter and love, through not only its rich history but the reminiscent flavours of my childhood.

This was one meal I wasn’t prepared to give up when changing to a ketogenic diet, I just knew I had to come up with a way to make these into a keto compliant meal and you better believe it when I say these are incredibly easy to make and are definitely drool-worthy! Not only are these keto and low-carb but also nut-free!

  • 2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese (100 g/ 3.5 oz)

  4. To make the keto pastry, add grated cheese to a microwave safe bowl, heat in 30 second bursts until melted. Stirring in between each burst of heat.

  6. To assemble the Gozlemes, roll each ball in between 2 sheets of parchment paper, into a rectangle shape.
  7. Divide the cooled filling in the centre of each pastry sheet. Start by folding the bottom and top edges overfilling.

  9. Heat oil over medium heat in a non-stick skillet, lightly fry each gozleme until golden, turn and cook on the remaining side. Alternatively, you can place gozlemes on a baking tray, lined with baking paper, and cook in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted), or 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional) or until lightly golden.

  10. Slice and optionally serve with full-fat yogurt or sour cream. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Eat warm by gently warming up in the oven or microwave or cold. Keto Turkish Beef Gozleme

Excellent recipe, and then the keto diet, while it is not the magic cure-all for every  disease on the planet, does a pretty good job......
