Low FODMAP köfte kebabs with homemade tzatziki

Köfte kebabs always remind me of the time that I was studying in Istanbul and of the summer holidays with my family in Turkey. This year it has been 5 years that I went on exchange to Istanbul, isn’t it crazy how quick time flies by. I thought this “anniversary” was a good moment to share a typical Turkish dish with you that is great for a BBQ: low FODMAP köfte kebabs with homemade tzatziki!

Tzatziki usually contains A LOT of garlic, but I made a low FODMAP version by using homemade garlic-infused oil. Usually, köfte is made with minced lamb meat, but as I don’t like lamb meat so much, I used beef instead. Feel free to use the kind of meat you prefer.

What do you need (for 8 kebabs)

For the köfte kebabs

  • 500 g lean minced beef (you can also use lamb)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Fresh parsley
  • Wooden or metal skewers

For the tzatziki

  • 300 ml lactose-free yoghurt
  • 100 g cucumber, grated
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic (to make the low FODMAP garlic-infused oil)
  • a splash of lemon juice
  • Pepper and salt
  • Mint (fresh or dried)

How to make the low FODMAP köfte kebabs with tzatziki

  1. Start by making the tzatziki.
  2. Heat the two tablespoons of oil in a pan. Add, when the oil is hot, the garlic cloves to the pan and fry for a few minutes. Remove the garlic from the oil and throw the garlic away. Take the pan of off the heat and leave the oil to cool down.
  3. Put the yoghurt into a bowl. Grate the cucumber above the bowl and stir together. Add the garlic oil, lemon juice, mint, pepper and salt. Taste and add some more spices if necessary. Put the tzatziki into the fridge.
  4. Put the minced meat and all the spices together in a bowl. Knead this together with your hands.
  5. Roll little sausages with your hands (about as thick as a thick finger) and put them onto the skewers.
  6. Fry the köfte for about 15 minutes on the BBQ or in a grill pan. Turn them now and then.
  7. Serve the köfte with the tzatziki.

Afiyet olsun!

    Thank you for this recipe! I love Tesco’s lamb kebabs & their creamy tzatziki, but obviously a no-go on low fodmap diet with all the garlic & extra ingredients 🙁
    Made this last night (with lamb mince) with juicy Greek style potatoes & med veg (omitting the beloved red onion) & it all worked beautifully together. Kebabs were easy to make & perfectly flavoured. Would definitely recommend & I’m sure these are going to feature on the menu a lot from now on 😀

    We made this last night with a cucumber feta salad on the side. It was so good! Had leftovers again tonight. I want to try shaping the beef into a patty and serving them as hamburgers for cookouts.
