Simple Keto meat pie recipes are always close to zero carbs due to carnivore ingredients. Even if you use some yoghurt, cheese or herbs the dish will have minimum carb content. However, should we only care about carbs? Of course not! We care about micronutrients, nourishment and taste. When I say taste I mean quality. If you are preparing a nourishing meal, treat yourselves and the ones you love as royalties. After all, that’s the best way to show love through cooking!
How much cheese is not too much?
This particular simple Keto meat pie calls for well-known ingredients. As you read this article, you will realise you already have most of them in your kitchen. Especially if you decided to follow the Keto Mediterranean diet. Most Mediterranean families always have some feta cheese, Greek yoghurt and herbs. On the Keto Mediterranean diet, we just follow this principle. Our traditional ingredients never fail! Additionally, we used goat cheese on top which made the pie aromatic. But if you don’t have goat cheese, you most probably keep some parmesan in your Mediterranean oriented kitchen. After all, we’ll not use a lot of cheese, just 2 tablespoons for topping. Therefore, you could just use any hard or cheese you have at that moment for topping.
Ground meat of your choice
Naturally, ground meat is the main ingredient of our easy keto meat pie. Now, if you want it to be truly nourishing and soft, you’ll go for ground lamb or veal. But if beef is the only meat you have, the recipe will work equally good! Maybe you’ll just need a bit more time to cook the meat. If you want to be festive then go for venison! Wild game pies are always special! As long as you stay within the ruminant animal world, your choice of minced meat will be perfect.
Simple Keto meat pie calls for simple herbs
Have you already bought all the typical Mediterranean herbs? If not, even this is fixable. for the easy Keto meat pie, we went for some typical spices. Here’s an idea, if you have some herbal tea, you can use it as a spice. Herbs in teabags usually smell even more intense. For example, I always use hibiscus, rosehips, peppermint, sage and thyme from teabags. Naturally, fresh basil, parsley or rosemary would be ideal, but if you don’t have them, just play with the herbs you have. In the end, garlic, black pepper and red paprika powder will be the base. Everything else is up to you! Remember, creativity is in small details. Just one special ingredient can create a masterpiece of culinary art! 😉
