My keto-friendly flaky puff pastry shell replaces high-carb filo pastry for these Turkish borek cigars filled with crumbly Feta cheese and herbs.
  • 1 QK Puff Pastry #3 (unsalted)
  • 200g Greek Feta cheese (crumbled)
  • ½ TBSP unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • a small handful of fresh mint or parsley leaves
  • 2 small eggs - beaten in separate bowls
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • a little sesame flour for dusting (U.S. option HERE)
  1. make the puff pastry dough according to instructions, but with NO SALT (Feta cheese is quite salty already).
  2. crumble the Feta cheese and put it in mixing bowl together with paprika, milk and chopped mint/parsley.
  3. beat one egg until foamy and add it to the Feta bowl; mix well, mashing it all up with a fork.
  4. dust a silicone pastry mat and rolling pin with a little sesame flour, place chilled pastry dough over the mat and stretch it out to a sheet about 40cm x 30cm.
  5. cut the pastry sheet into 9 sections (2 equal cuts along the longest side and 2 equal cuts along the shortest side).
  6. pre-heat oven to 200°C fan (220°C static).
  7. place a spoonful of filling on each pastry section alongside the long edge - about 3cm in.
  8. beat the other egg and brush a little along the opposite edge, then roll the pastry as tightly as possible, like you would a cigar.
  9. place the cigars onto an oven rack lined with non-stick baking paper or a silicone baking mat (U.S. option HERE), ensuring that the seals are facing downwards.
  10. brush each cigar all over with the remaining beaten egg.
  11. bake for 17-18 minutes, until golden-brown and caramelised.
  12. let the cigars cool and firm up before serving - re-heat them if you prefer them warm.
Prep time does NOT include puff-pastry.

The best way to ensure accurate measurement of ingredients is with Metric Kitchen Scales. They are inexpensive and take up very little space. Click HERE for the ones I use. For U.S. option click HERE.
