If you are on a ketogenic diet or looking for an easy, quick and satiating recipe, we advise you to try this option of cloud eggs ideal for a keto lunch or a light dinner!
Prep/Rest Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 4 Eggs
- Salt (optional)
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Onion or strawberry herbs to taste
The measurements of this recipe are estimated for 2 people.
To make these cloud eggs we only need to have the fresh eggs and start by separating the yolks from the whites.
The egg whites must be beaten together to the “point of snow”, they must be well mounted, firm so that the structure can be assembled in the form of a nest on an oven plate.
At this point we can add a pinch of salt to the whites if we wish and with the help of a spoon we can form mounds with a space in the middle, on a baking tray previously oiled with extra virgin olive oil.
In the space made with the spoon we put a yolk in each mound (it will be one per egg) and we take it to a strong oven (240°C) for about 15 minutes, although it can be less if the oven is preheated.
When removing from the oven, add pepper, fresh herbs, chopped spring onion or whatever you like.
To accompany the cloud eggs
The egg clouds are a preparation full of quality proteins, satiating but light.
It is advisable to accompany them with a fresh vegetable salad for a light dinner, although we can opt for guacamole or grilled meat if we are on a keto diet.
