Homemade Doner Kebab

Homemade Doner Kebab

Watching your figure doesn’t mean you have to give up your Saturday night treat, and that includes the Doner Kebab. In fact, my homemade Doner Kebab meat can be high in protein and with virtually no carbohydrates whatsoever.

There’s a big difference between this homemade donor kebab recipe which you buy in a fast-food restaurant. To start, you know exactly what’s gone into the meat (which is more than can be said for the lump of processed meat which turns around on that grill). Plus, with my recipe, you know exactly how old the meat is!

I highly recommend that you use grass fed lamb whenever possible, but if lamb isn’t your think there’s not reason you can swap it for pork mince, or even beef.

This Homemade Doner Kebab is healthy, tasty and cheap!

This recipe has taken me a year or so to perfect and now I’m happy to share it with you! You can adjust the ingredients to suit you and alter the salad to your own tastes. You can make a chilli sauce if you like or instead try a good quality mayo on it – it’s good!

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to gas mark 7 (200'c)
  2. Place all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and thoroughly mix. If you can, use your hands and really mix the ingredients together until they resemble a texture of a burger
  3. Line the bottom of a large roasting tin with greaseproof paper. If you don't have greaseproof paper, use tin foil. NOTE: this will make it easier to clean the roasting tin later

Quick Paleo diet breakfast

Quick Paleo diet breakfast
Boiled eggs, turkey and a spinach smoothy is a great way to start the day
Boiled eggs, turkey and a spinach smoothy is a great way to start the day

We’re all busy in our lives and on occasion I’ve found it hard to make a decent and filling Quick Paleo diet breakfast in time for getting the kids to school and then making my way to work.

To stick to the true paleo diet you need to make sure you get green salad leaf in your meal and that’s not always easy. Some people just don’t want to eat spinach or rocket first thing in the morning.

But there are a number of things you can do the day (or days) before and have waiting in your refrigerator ready to go, which can be a way to have a Quick Paleo diet breakfast if you’re in a hurry.

Eggs (in particular free range pastured eggs) are paleo food and can be boiled days in advance. Keeping them in the fridge in their own protective shell will make them last for longer. Think of them as “emergency protein” ready for when hunger strikes.

Grilled turkey breasts are much more common in the UK now than they used to be and are a great source of white protein. Roast them with a little water in the pan and cover to prevent them drying out and they’ll last a few days in the fridge.

 

What about green salad leaves?

Green salad leaf is an important part of the paleo diet. If you don’t fancy eating salad leaves in the morning, why not add them to a short smoothie? Just blend a handful of spinach with the flesh of an orange and the flesh of a mango. You can throw a handful of blueberries in too. If you find the mix too thick, add a splash of soda water (or just plain water). If you’re trying to loose weight then avoid the fruit and eat the salad leafs whole with your eggs and turkey. It’s always best to eat salad leaves whole but if you just can’t stomach them, blending them is much better than not having them at all. I hope you enjoy this Quick Paleo diet breakfast recipe.
