Keto Shawarma Recipe
Keto Shawarma is a delicious and healthy version of the popular dish that fits perfectly into the ketogenic diet. Juicy strips of chicken or turkey are gently marinated in aromatic spices like paprika and cumin, and then fried to a golden color. Keto wraps provide the perfect packaging for the filling, which consists of crispy lettuce, juicy tomato, red onion, and pickles. It is all complemented by a freshly flavored and intense Greek yogurt garlic sauce. This dish will not only satisfy your cravings but also allow you to enjoy the favorite taste of Shawarma while staying true to your keto goals.
- 500g chicken or turkey breast, sliced into thin strips
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ½ cup thick Greek yogurt (low-fat or full-fat)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 4 butter lettuce leaves
- 1 tomato, sliced
- ¼ red onion, sliced
- 2 pickles, sliced
- In a bowl, mix together olive oil, crushed garlic, paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Add the sliced meat and mix well to ensure the meat is evenly coated with the marinade. Set aside for about 30 minutes to marinate.
- Meanwhile, prepare the garlic sauce. In a bowl, combine Greek yogurt, lemon juice, crushed garlic, chopped dill, salt, and pepper. Mix well, then refrigerate to chill the sauce.
- Heat a small amount of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the marinated meat and cook until well browned on both sides, ensuring the meat is fully cooked.
- Warm up the keto wraps (you can either buy pre-made ones or make your own using a keto wrap recipe) to make them flexible and warm.
- Prepare the toppings: wash and dry the lettuce leaves, slice the tomato, thinly slice the red onion, and slice the pickles.
- Place a keto wrap on a plate and in the center, place a piece of cooked meat. Add lettuce, tomato slices, red onion slices, and pickles. Drizzle everything with the garlic sauce.
- Fold the wrap, just as you would traditionally do with Shawarma.
- Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the remaining wraps and ingredients.
- Your keto Shawarma is ready to be served! You can serve it with extra garlic sauce and optionally with a side vegetable salad as an additional keto element. 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.
