I love a good kebab, they are fun to eat and always make a meal feel special. Mediterranean food is one of my favorites because it is a type a cuisine that focuses on basic ingredients and enhances its flavor. It’s the type of food that makes an ingredient shines and teaches a cook how to explore the natural flavors and make each ingredient that much special.
This particular beef kebab has Greek and Middle Eastern inspirations with the mint, pine nuts, and yogurt sauce. It packs lots of flavors and it´s light enough to be included in any diet.
This recipe can be easily changed using lamb instead or even ground turkey if you are looking for a lighter version (you might need to adjust the amount of flour when using turkey to get the same texture to mold the kebabs). And if you have a hard time finding pine nuts, you can use walnuts or cashews.
There are also other ways to cook the kebabs, it can be pan seared in a frying pan (in that case I would recommend making smaller kebabs to avoid overcooking the outside) or cooked on a grill, making these kebabs the star of an outdoor summer meal!

Add the ground beef, garlic, eggs, chopped mint, pine nuts, salt, pepper, olive oil, and coconut flour to a large mixing bowl.
Mix all the ingredients together until you have obtained a beef mixture that is thick enough to hold into a skewer.
Start making the beef kebabs by using around a 1/4 of cup of the beef mixture, mold it with your hands and when you have the desired shape. After is shaped stick the skewer through the kebab and place it on a baking sheet greased with olive oil or coconut oil.
Place the baking sheet into a pre-heated oven at 350° F and bake it for 15 min on one side until golden brown. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and flip the kebabs. Put it back in the oven for another 5 minutes until the other side is also crispy. Remove from the oven and serve it with the yogurt cucumber sauce.
