Broccoli Frittata with Creamed Pesto Swirl Keto Recipe

A yummy keto breakfast meal choice, this frittata recipe I’m sharing today has plenty of good fats and nutrient-rich high fiber foods.

There are many high fiber veggies that can be worked into your keto diet – two such vegetables to enjoy are broccoli and spinach which are a couple of key ingredients in this recipe. I’ve also included turmeric, a fiber-rich herb, that supports metabolic health in many ways while promoting autophagy. Lastly, if you’ve been following me for a while, I’m sure you know by now that Pili nuts are my favorite keto nut, and, yes, I have included them in this amazing recipe as well. Enjoy!

Broccoli Frittata with Creamed Pesto Swirl

2 tablespoons Simply GOODFATS Organic MCT Oil
½ onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups finely chopped broccoli florets
8 eggs
½ teaspoon ground turmeric
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ cup Creamed Pesto (see below)
Black pepper to taste

Creamed Pesto
1 cup basil
1 cup spinach
¼ cup Simply GOODFATS Organic MCT Oil
2 tablespoons pili nuts or pine nuts
¼ cup full fat ricotta cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Place basil, spinach, MCT oil and pili (or pine) nuts in the bowl of a food processor and blend until evenly combined. Add ricotta cheese and a little salt and pepper, then pulse a few times until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning depending on desired preference. Set creamed pesto to the side.
  • Preheat oven to 350° F and set oven rack in the center.
  • Heat MCT oil in an oven-safe cast iron pan over medium heat. Sautee onion for about 2-3 minutes until softened.
  • Lower heat, then stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about another minute.
  • Add in broccoli and a little water to loosen vegetable mixture and cook until fork-tender, about 3-5 minutes.
  • With a fork, beat eggs, turmeric, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Swirl in the Creamed Pesto. Add the egg mixture over the veggies and cook on low for a few minutes. Finish cooking in the oven until eggs are firm and solid texture, about 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes before slicing.
