  • 3 c broccoli florets, fresh or frozen
  • 1 Tb coconut oil
  • 1/2 c red onion, diced
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (or grated for stronger garlic flavor)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon yellow curry powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 c frozen peas, can omit for paleo or keto
  • 1 c canned full fat coconut milk
  • 1 c chicken broth
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c chopped pecans, toasted


  • To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place your broccoli in a vegetable steam basket and place it in a pot with just enough water to cover the bottom.
  • Cover and turn the heat on medium. Simmer the water long enough to steam the broccoli until it is almost tender and is bright green in color.
  • Transfer it to another dish to stop the cooking process and set it aside for now. (Note: My rice cooker has a vegetable steamer basket and comes in handy for steaming vegetables.)
  • Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet and add the onion. Sauté the onion until it is just tender.
  • Add in the ground beef and cook until it is browned, breaking up the pieces with your utensil.
  • Add in the garlic and cook for just a minute longer.
  • Stir in the curry powder, cumin, oregano, smoked paprika, and salt. Remove it form the heat.
  • Stir in the peas and broccoli.
  • Spread the beef mixture in a greased (I use coconut oil) baking dish that is 8×8" square or equivalent in size.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, chicken broth, and the eggs.
  • Pour the egg mixture all over the beef and vegetables.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the eggs are set in the center.
  • Top with the toasted pecans.
  • Enjoy!
