Keto Steamed Egg

Updated: Aug 20, 2020



When I started Keto, incorporating fat was not an issue for me, nor was eliminating carbs. Incorporating quality protein became a challenge since I got bored of eating Paneer and wanted to get my protein from whole foods rather than protein powder. I decided to try egg. The only way I had tasted egg before, was an omelette and it was too eggy for me. Egg is the perfect combination of protein and fat but I do not like anything that tastes eggy so I am always looking for Egg recipes which are not eggy in taste. What a weird sentence :-P


If you do not like eggy tasting recipes, Steamed egg is the perfect solution for you. It is basically like custard, it gets the taste from the seasonings and the tempering and has no eggy flavor. It is creamy and delicious and perfect for your Keto diet and appropriate for any meal of the day.
