Low carb diet sometimes gets so boring especially when it comes to breakfast. Eating same thing again and again every morning when you wake up, doesn’t even sound nice to me. Because I need change but my diet doesn’t allow me this so I have to be very creative with my breakfast recipes. Though having eggs and bacon is good but when you are planning to adopt low carb lifestyle, this gets old and boring after a week or two.
To be honest, I can eat cream cheese pancakes every day without getting bored but the problem is sugar syrup that contain artificial sweeteners, which aren’t good when you are counting calories. So I keep this option for my weekend treat only. I started having Chorizo a week ago and then I decided to pair it up with some spinach and goat cheese. The rich flavour of spicy Chorizo goes great with baby spinach and creamy goat cheese. When I tried this for the second time I had it with some Tomato Salsa and it really boosted the flavour to the top of deliciousness.
Let’s talk about the recipe and preparation.
- Chorizo sausage : 4 ounces
- Butter : 1/2 Tbsp
- Eggs : 4
- Water : 1 Tbsp
- Crumbled fresh goat cheese : 2 ounces
- Baby spinach leaves : 2 cups
- sliced avocado (optional)
- Salsa verde : 1/4 cup (optional)
Remove Chorizo from the casing.
Take a medium sized pan and Sautee the chorizo until fully cooked. Take them out from the pan and place in a plate. And wipe out the pan with paper towel to remove extra grease.
In another bowl, crack the eggs and whisk them with water.
Add butter in the same pan and heat over low flame and pour in the beaten eggs. Now add already cooked chorizo, baby spinach, and crushed goat cheese on half side of the eggs. Cook for 3-4 minutes on low flame or until eggs are half cooked. Now fold the empty side of the eggs to the topping side and cover the pan with lid and let it cook for few more minutes until the eggs are fully cooked. Make sure you cook it over low heat but still if it is browning to fast then remove the pan from stove and leave it covered for 10 minutes so the centre of the mixture will cook thoroughly.
You can also bake the omelette after the eggs are half cooked.
Top this with tomato salsa sauce and avocado slices and enjoy low carb delicious breakfast without missing your toasts.
