- 2 cups almond flour
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 300 g ground meat (e.g., beef, pork, chicken)
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Selected spices (e.g., oregano, basil, smoked paprika) optional
- 1/2 cup sour cream or thick Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon chopped dill
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a large bowl, mix almond flour, almond butter, eggs, and salt until the ingredients are combined. You can use a mixer or knead the dough by hand.
- Divide the dough into two parts and roll out each part into a thin sheet on a floured surface.
- In a saucepan, heat butter or coconut oil, add chopped onions and minced garlic, and sauté until they become soft and lightly golden. Add the ground meat and cook until done. Season with salt, pepper, and selected spices according to your preference. Stir until the ingredients are well combined. Remove the saucepan from heat and let the filling cool.
- Prepare a saucepan with salted boiling water. On one of the dough sheets, place spoonfuls of the filling, leaving some space between them. Cover with the second dough sheet and gently press to seal the pierogies. You can use a fork to create patterns on the edges.
- Drop the pierogies into the boiling water and cook for about 5-7 minutes until they float to the surface. You can cook them in batches to avoid overcrowding the pot.
- Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by mixing sour cream or Greek yogurt with chopped dill. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- When the pierogies are ready, drain them and serve them hot, topped with the sauce and garnished with additional chopped dill.
- Now you can enjoy delicious keto pierogies! Remember, this is just one of the many possibilities that the ketogenic diet offers, so feel free to experiment with different fillings like cheese, spinach, or mushrooms to add variety to the flavors. Enjoy!

And short story about LEET DIET
As a choreographer and aerial gymnast, I had always been interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Diets had been my hobby, but I never truly enjoyed them until I discovered the Keto diet. After reading numerous books about how our bodies work and the benefits of a high-fat, low-carb diet, I decided to give it a try. I never looked back. The Keto lifestyle quickly became my passion, and I began experimenting with new recipes and meal plans. That's when I decided to share my knowledge with the world and created Leet Diet, a website filled with delicious Keto-friendly recipes and helpful tips for anyone looking to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
