Greek Meatloaf anyone? We decided to name it Greek meatloaf because nothing smells better than the famous Gemista baked in the oven. You still don’t know what is Gemista? Worry not, we have you covered with a written and video recipe on our website. Gemista is a dish made of summer veggies (technically they are fruits) stuffed with the most aromatic meat mixture which makes you start counting minutes till it’s ready! It’s very traditional and authentic, but Ketonised to the full potential! Howe we ketonised it? We excluded rice and potatoes! How about that?
Greek Meatloaf with the filling of Gemista
There are two problems with the beloved Gemista dish. Many people usually eat the filling and leave the veggies that were stuffed. The other problem is that you can never make enough of it if you have friends or family visiting! Well, to fix this problem and to make a Keto summer food festival, we decided to work on the filling and create a new recipe. This turned out better than we imagined it could. Before we tried it, we thought it’ll be dry and not so appetising after it cooled down. But the right mixture, temperature and moisture from a zucchini took care of it. Not to mention divine Feta cheese, eggs and natural fat from the lamb. Now, you can try other types of meat or mixtures. However, for the most delicious and nutritious results, the fresh, ground lamb will just make it “Greeker”. Now, we all know that if the food is Greeker, this simply means it’s better! In the universe of Greek Goes Keto, it also means it’s healthier. 😉
Summer heat and cooking problems
A typical problem we all encounter in summer is the connection between the high thermometer and our will to cook. However, with this simple Greek meatloaf recipe, you’ll be able to have a ready and delicious Keto meal for days. Plus it’ll be even tastier when it’s cold. in fact, I would eat this meatloaf only cold, if possible every day! Naturally, you can serve the sauce freshly prepared or just keep it in a glass container in the refrigerator. Our version is not just tomato puree, so make sure you use it within 3-4 days due to egg content. But hey, no chance you’ll have the Greek meat loaf for longer than two days! 🙂
