Sample Recipe: Lemon-Olive Oil Breakfast Cakes with Berry Syrup
Weekends are made for pancakes! Olive oil–based cakes are a common staple for the Mediterranean baker. The lemon flavor is a light and refreshing new twist on a breakfast favorite
To Make the Pancakes
1. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk to break up any clumps.
2. Add the 4 tablespoons olive oil, eggs, lemon zest and juice, and almond extract and whisk to combine well.
3. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and spoon about 2 tablespoons of batter for each of 4 pancakes. Cook until bubbles begin to form, 4 to 5 minutes, and flip. Cook another 2 to 3 minutes on second side. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and batter.
Serves 4 Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes
For the Berry Sauce
-1 cup frozen mixed berries
-1 tablespoon water or lemon juice, plus more if needed
-½ teaspoon vanilla extract
To make the Berry Sauce In a small saucepan, heat the frozen berries, water, and vanilla extract over medium-high for 3 to 4 minutes, until bubbly, adding more water if mixture is too thick. Using the back of a spoon or fork, mash the berries and whisk until smooth.

The Manchego Crackers on page 61 are excellent. Manchego cheese, almond flour, and butter. They’re like savory, cheesy, nutty shortbread. The kids thought they tasted like a yummier Cheez-it. Lol!
The Garlicky Shrimp with Mushrooms on page 108 was delicious and super filling. My kids love shrimp and mushrooms, so I doubled those and left everything else the same. I used up the parsley last night, so grabbed basil out of my fridge instead.
The Zucchini-Ricotta Fritters with Lemon-Garlic Aioli on page 63 are crazy delicious! I made them for breakfast. I’ll double the recipe next time because my teenagers wanted more. Love.
The Crustless Spanakopita on page 91 is terrific! We didn’t miss the crust at all!
I’ll update this as I play in the book more!
Some others I have flagged to try: Mediterranean Frittata – p 39 * Marinated Feta and Artichokes – p 54 * Greek Deviled Eggs – p 60 * Crab Cake Lettuce Cups – p 77 * Pesto Cauliflower Sheet-Pan Pizza – p 99 * Salmon with Tarragon-Dijon Sauce – p 121 * Lemon-Rosemary Spatchcock Chicken – p 132 * Lamb Kofte with Yogurt Sauce – p 134 * Nutter Butter Cup Fat Bomb – p 153 * Versatile Sandwich Round – p 169
I received a copy to explore and share my thoughts.
I have been following a keto diet for over a year. I am now adding more fish to my diet, with the help of these recipes.
Let me begin by listing the first factor that may not be a factor for other people and that's this: while I very much enjoy healthful mindsets and recipes, I'm a bit of a picky eater. Taking that into account, unfortunately there weren't as many recipes in here that I was interested in as I was hoping for. Of course, that is my personal taste only, and another person who enjoys more vegetables and seafood than I do may like this cookbook more.
However, there were three other factors that lent to my rating.
To begin with, *many* of the recipes here called for almond flour, which if you didn't know, is an extremely costly flour. It was the only flour I saw used in this cookbook, and, unlike a 5-pound bag of whole wheat flour for $3.86; a 16-ounce bag of coconut flour for $3.52; or even a 16-ounce package of oat flour for $3.81; a meager 16-ounce bag of almond flour costs $10.98 in Wal-Mart, and I was expected to use it OFTEN. This is unreasonable. For such a pricey shopping list item, I feel other options should have been listed.
Secondly, pictures. There were no pictures for the recipes here! And if you're anything like me, you'll know pictures aren't just a privilege but a requirement for any quality cookbook, for the interest in a recipe and the guide it provides.
Lastly, most of the recipes I tried here didn't have the flavor or texture I look for in good food. While the Morrocan Vegetable Tagine (pictured 1) was well-liked by my family, the Breakfast Cakes with Berry Syrup (pictured 2), for instance, were very flat and crumbly, and the Chicken Piccata lacked savory flavor and was far too vinegary from the many chopped capers the recipe called for. Most of the recipes I tried here struck out for me and my family's pallettes.
Overall, this cookbook got its two stars for its well-detailed information and the recipe my family did like. Unfortunately, this cookbook generally wasn't for me, but had some great ideas for anyone serious about the Keto diet. Someone looking for unique recipes in that subcategory may find this cookbook helpful, and if they know their tastes gear towards the Mediterranean diet, I'd recommend it to them.
**I received this book courtesy NetGalley/Rockridge Press free in exchange for an honest review which did not affect my opinion
Whether you're following keto, Mediterranean, or both I think you'll find a nice variety of flavorful recipes in this book. There are some great ideas for breakfast and snacks, both times that are often a challenge in getting variety. The author nicely explains keto and Mediterranean and the health benefits of combining the two. I trust the information since it is written by a registered dietitian who has the background and training to provide this type of information. There is a list of foods to have in the kitchen which is always helpful, especially when grocery shopping and not necessarily planning ahead. Shopping from this list may offer the opportunity to pick up the book, choose, a recipe, and have what is needed to prepare the item. Obviously, the "Foods to Enjoy and Avoid" section is easy to use if not following the specific meal plans outlined in the book. A first timer may want to follow the specific meal plans for a more successful experience while learning the basics.
I love the variety of recipes, although may need to work around a few things I don't care for, like anchovies and lamb.
Just looking at the ingredients I know every recipe is packed with flavor. Although I am not yet able to comment on any specific recipe as I just purchased many ingredients to get started, I may need to write another review after preparing several.
This is definitely a great book for anyone wanting better flavor and variety in their keto diet. The only thing I find missing is pictures as I like to see pictures of what the finished product should look like.
