Keto Feta and Spinach Omelette for Egg Haters
It’s the season of spinach and now it is the perfect time to take advantage of this wonderful leafy green! It is packed with so many indispensable nutrients essential for our bodies and our wellbeing!
Hundred grams of this green superfood supplies us with more than 9000 IU Vitamin A (including the vital Lutein for our eye health), 500 mg Potassium, 400 mg Vitamin K, and also lots of Magnesium, Phosphorus, Calcium, and more! On the other hand, spinach contains merely 23 ckal which makes it perfect for every type of healthy and weigh management diet plan, including HFLC (0.42 g of net carbs per one 100-gram serving).
So, today’s suggestion is a very easy and quick recipe which is wonderful for every time of the day – my favorite spinach omelette with feta cheese. This recipe will supply your body with plenty of good fats, proteins, and the magnificent chlorophyll, satisfying your hunger for long hours without compromising your healthy diet! I think this clearly answers the question “Is spinach omelette good for you?”.
And do not worry, even if you are among the egg haters, this keto spinach omelette recipe will completely change your perception of these oval chicken products! I will share my secret down below.
How to make spinach omelette at home
The recipe for spinach omelette is pretty straightforward but in my variation I will show you a few tips and tricks on how to prepare this yummy breakfast recipe more easily and how to make it taste better.
First of all for those still wondering “What’s in this spinach omelette?”, I will list my preferred healthy and keto-friendly ingredients which include:
- spinach (duh!) – I prefer raw but you can make the spinach omelette with frozen spinach as well – just follow the same instructions and try to evaporate all excess water first;
- eggs – preferably organic from free-range birds. How many eggs to put in the keto omelette depends on your preferences and nutritional needs. I like adding two medium ones. More than two feels too much for my taste buds. 🙂
- feta cheese – of course, I like our magnificent Bulgarian feta (which is much more diet-friendly than the Greek variation), but you can use whatever you have at your disposal. If you do not have feta cheese, no worries, you can make the spinach omelette with goat cheese, cottage cheese, cream cheese, or ricotta.
A pro tip: if your feta contains lots of Sodium, when cooked the meal will become even saltier. So, it is best to soak the feta in clean water for a few hours or overnight. I use a charcoal pitcher to remove the limescale and other unwanted impurities from tap water.
- Yellow cheese – again, I prefer my beloved Bulgarian yellow cheese (called kashkaval), but I know it is not available all around the world, so you can substitute with any type of keto-friendly cheese you prefer – cheddar, mozzarella, edam, emmentaler, etc.
And that’s pretty much it! The exact quantities are down in the recipe card!
Now let’s see how to this cook spinach omelette with as little effort as possible and make it suitable even for the biggest egg haters!
My fist secret is the blending procedure.
Beat the eggs in a kitchen chopper (or using a hand blender) and add the feta cheese and homogenize the mixture well (as you would do with pancake batter). Usually, most people just crumble the feta and this emphasizes the taste of the eggs.
By blending both ingredients, the egg taste is softened by the cheese. And by adding and blending the leafy greens, your palate will be delighted by the taste of this keto omelette with spinach!
Now to the next big secret – how to flip the damn thing! 😀
By adding spinach we also add some water to the mixture (even though it is cooked), and this makes flipping the omelette quite a difficult task.
So, my suggestion is to make this spinach omelette in the oven – we avoid the process of frying, burning the butter, and the hassle of breaking the omelet.
You need to simply choose a small (or medium-sized) non-stick pan (I used my lovely tart pan), grease it with melted butter, and place it on the middle rack of the oven to cook on both sides!
When the meal is ready and cooled down a bit, place a large plate to face the omelet, press them gently, and simply turn it upside down – the spinach omelette with be served on the plate in seconds! Easy peasy!
Absolutely! All the ingredients in this recipe are keto-approved!
But here is some exact data:
According to Cronometer, this spinach omelette for one contains fewer than 7 grams of net carbs for the whole recipe which weighs approximately 350 grams. This means only 2 grams of net carbs per 100 grams!

What goes with the spinach omelette?
I would strongly suggest garnishing this recipe with some parsley, basil, tomatoes or a leafy green salad (lettuce, micro greens, cabbage, etc.). Omelettes are packed with healthy fats and you may want to balance the taste with something fresh and juicy dressed with some lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, or balsamic vinegar.
