Substitutions and Ingredient tips

Broccoli: For those that don’t like broccoli, give this Keto Chorizo Frittata a go and you might start to like it!

After steaming the broccoli, it gets tossed with the chorizo and olive oil to soak up all the delicious flavours.

However if you really don’t like broccoli you could leave it out or substitute with another keto vegetable like mushrooms, a bit of capsicum, spinach leaves, zucchini (although that may go a little soggy).

Parmesan: I like to sprinkle this with parmesan and let it sit, then flip it upside down to serve with the crunchy golden side up.

You could substitute the parmesan in this Keto frittata for any cheese you have on hand and enjoy. I have used tasty cheese, mozzarella and even left over bits and pieces from a cheese platter!

Serve with: Being a nicely complete meal on its own, I find it best served with some simple green salad leaves.

You could also have it as a side dish to compliment a protein like a steak or chicken for an extra high protein meal – great after a big work out or long hike!

Just wondering if you have an dairy free alternative/substitution for the cream?

Meagan

Hi there with the chorizo fritatta could this go in the oven to cook in a tin I don’t have a fry pan that goes in the oven. Thankyou Meagan

Hi, new to keto. the cream for this recipe (and others) it is your standard thickened cream? or is there a specific keto friendly version I should be looking for?
thanks!

Hi Rachel,

Can’t wait to try this recipe! However, I’m American and don’t know what you mean when you refer to a grill. Is that the same as an oven broiler here in the states? Thanks very much!

Chris John
