These cauliflower frittatas are the result of a 10-minutes improve. Honestly? I was positively surprised by the result. Why? because this is an easy recipe, full of protein, vegetable and fibre, no flour or gluten. It can also easily be upgraded with cool additions.

About the recipe

Those of you who know me a little bit, might know that I started a chocolatier course a couple of weeks ago. Yes! a 75-hours training full of chocolate. And how does this blend with my healthy-low carb diet? Well, it doesn’t really. But I’m learning a lot of new techniques, which are worth the temporary high sugar and cacao dosages.

To balance things off, on days that I don’t have to attend the course, I try to eat mostly vegetables of all kinds and protein. To top it off, this week a trey of organic eegs was sitting in my kitchen, begging for me to do something about it before it can no longer be used. So, this is how this low carb, full of protein recipe was born.

What are the ingredients for this recipe? Eggs check, cauliflower- check. I also added phylum husk, which I like to buy from iHerb and some basic spices, like salt and garlic powder. The fun part about this recipe is that it can use as base, and you can add some cool extra ingredients like greens, feta or goat cheese or corn.

How to make

Making this recipe is very simple. We use eegs at room temperature. Why room temperature? Because otherwise the frittata won’t rise while baking. If you don’t have eegs at room temperature, you can put your eggs in a bowl with warm water (not too warm, we don’t want them to cook) for some time. We whisk the eggs well, and add the Psyllium husk.

We then put the cauliflower inside a blender or a food processor and grind it small, until the cauliflower looks like cauliflower rice. We mix the cauliflower with the eegs, add spices and baking powder, mix again and place in a donut or muffins baking dish.

We then bake it on 180 degrees (360 Fahrenheit) for a few minutes on lower oven heat and switch to upper and lower heat for additional bake. We know that the cauliflower frittatas are ready when the top becomes golden. Easy, right?

Servings 8 personal frittatas


  • 5 eegs at room temperature*
  • ½ head cauliflower about 4 cups
  • 2 tsp psyllium husk
  • ¾ flat tsp salt
  • ½ tsp dry garlic powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder** optional
  • Optional additions: a handful of greens cut small; feta or goat cheese cut to small chunks; cooked corn.


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180° (360° Fahrenheit)
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs well and add the psyllium husk. Mix well.
  • Place the cauliflower in a blender or food processor and pulse it until you get cauliflower "rice". Squeeze the liquid out of the cauliflower and add it to the bowl with the eggs. Mix well.
  • add the rest of the ingredients – salt, garlic powder, baking powder and any additional ingredient that you decided to use and mix well.
  • Pour the blend into a muffin or donut baking pan. don't fill it fully because the frittatas are likely to rise a little bit in the oven.
  • Place the baking pan in the oven and heat on lower heat for 10 minutes. Then change to upper and lower heat and bake for additional 20-30 minutes. The exact time will vary based on your oven strength. You will know that the frittatas are ready when they are golden from the top. Enjoy!


*We use eggs at room temperature because this allows the frittatas to rise while baking. You can use refrigerated eegs and put them in a bowl with warm water (not too warm, so that they don’t cook) for a little while.
**Baking powder is not a must but it allows the frittatas to rise more and get a bit more crispy on the edges.
