  • 1 small yellow onion (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 2 cloves garlic (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon ghee (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 3 zucchini (large,
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 1 bunch kale (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons chives (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley ,
  • 1 tablespoon marinara sauce (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper ,
  • 4 medium eggs ,
  • 5 slices parma ham (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 1 cup almond flour (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (chopped, 70 g/ 2.5 oz)


  • Preheat the oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F (fan assisted). Grate the zucchini. Place in a new bowl and heat in the microwave for 5 minutes on high. Remove from the microwave and allow to cool. Place the grated zucchini in a muslin cloth and squeeze out the excess water. Peel the shallot and garlic. Dice fine. Keep separate. Heat 1 tablespoon of ghee in a sauce pan on a medium/ low heat. Add the chopped onion and fry for 1-2 minutes. Then add the garlic and cook for a further 30 seconds until soft and translucent. Ensure the heat isnt too high to stop them burning. Once cooked place in a large mixing bowl. Crack the eggs into a cup and whisk with a fork until combined. Blitz the kale in a food processor until fine or option to dice as finely as possible. Place the cooked zucchini in a mixing bowl and combine with the goats cheese, chives, parsley (keep some for topping), kale, marinara sauce, salt, pepper, eggs and almond flour. Mix well. Line a medium baking tray with greaseproof paper to prevent sticking (I used 8 x 11 x 1.5 inch/ 20 x 28 x 4 cm baking tray). Coat the top of the greaseproof with a teaspoon of olive oil. Spoon in the keto breakfast bake filling and smooth with a spatula ensuring it fills to the edges. Peel the remaining zucchini using a vegetable peeler to make thin strands about 2 mm thick. Place alternating layers of parma ham and courgette on top of the low carb breakfast slice. I like to place 2 - 3 zucchini strips on top of each other and brush the top with a tablespoon of olive oil. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes until the top is slightly crisp and the base cooked through. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve. To store, let it cool down and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
