I think you’ll like this Keto Baked Feta.   I’m a big cheese fan as it stands.  So, I’m pretty picky about dishes tasting as good as possible when it comes to vegan cheese.  I absolutely love this feta!  It can be served as a dip or in chunks within a salad.  You can make the feta using raw almonds, but it’s more and messier work.  Just use almond flour.  I like this recipe because it’s fast and simple.

It’s the yogurt and lemon juice that gives this feta tang.  I add the lemon zest, so there is a hint of bitterness on the finish just like dairy feta. And you may want to experiment with the amount of salt used.  Greek feta is very salty.  So, this recipe can take more salt if you desire.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO BAKED FETA?

What is the nutritional value of this Keto Baked Feta? Almond flour is a popular gluten-free alternative to wheat flour that is used in baking and cooking. It is made by grinding blanched almonds into a fine powder. Almond flour is high in healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. One-quarter cup of almond flour contains around 160 calories, 6 grams of protein, 14 grams of fat (mostly monounsaturated), 3 grams of fiber, and several important micronutrients such as vitamin E, magnesium, and manganese. It is also low in carbohydrates, making it a great option for people following a low-carb or keto diet.

Almond flour is a nutrient-dense and versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of recipes, from cookies and cakes to bread and pancakes. It has a slightly nutty taste and can add a delicious flavor and texture to your baked goods. Incorporating almond flour into your diet is a great way to boost your nutrient intake and support overall health and wellness.

The predominant taste sensations in this Keto Low-Carb Baked Feta are tangy and salty.  Delicious!

WHAT NON-ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO BAKED FETA?

With the predominant taste sensations of this Keto Baked Feta being tangy and salty, choose a non alcoholic white wine with lots of clean acidity to match.  A crisp, dry white wine is just right. The wine’s acidity will nicely offset the saltiness while harmonizing with the tangy flavour from the fresh lemon. Wines to consider include: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio, dry Riesling, will work nicely. 

Zero Alcohol Wine Tips:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.

Description

This Keto Baked Feta can be served as a dip or as a cheese inside casseroles or on top of soup, salads, and entrees.


Ingredients

Scale

2 cups almond flour

1/2 cup water

3 tablespoons low-carb yogurt (or coconutmilk yogurt)

1/2 cup olive oil

3 cloves minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 teaspoons lemon zest (divided in half)

Freshly ground black pepper (for garnish)

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil (for garnish)


Instructions

  • In a food processor or blender add all ingredients except for 1 teaspoon lemon zest and black pepper.  Blend to a creamy consistency, about 1 minute.
  • Transfer mixture to a baking dish or loaf pan (4 cup/4″ X 8″) sprayed with non-stick avocado cooking spray.  Garnish with lemon zest and black pepper.   Bake for 30 minutes. Let rest. Refrigerate until cool, at least an hour.

Notes

  • Serve the feta hot as a dip.  Or transfer to a plate, chill, cut into cubes and add to salads, pizza, pasta, etc.
  • The recipe is based on the keto version and is approximate only.  One serving has 7 grams of net carbs.
  • (Note: The nutritional information provided is a courtesy and is approximate only.  We cannot guarantee the nutritional accuracy of any recipe on this site.  We cannot know what brands you use or how accurately you follow the recipe or what you like to add creatively to the dish. Use the information as a general guideline only.)
  • The recipe baking temperature and time is an estimate.  Follow your own oven’s temperature and cooking time. It takes a gas oven 10-15 minutes to reach the desired temperature. Electric ovens can take 10 minutes longer than that.  The age of your oven will also determine the temperature, time for roasting or baking, and where you want to place your dish in the oven.  The bottom of your oven may be hotter than the top, depending on its condition.  This also includes where to set your dish under the broiler.  So use your own best judgment based on the type, condition, and age of your oven.  Prep times will also vary depending on how slow or quickly you like to work.
