by KetoDietApp.com

Step 1Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional oven), 180 °C/ 360 °F (fan forced oven). Grate the zucchini. Place in a muslin cloth and squeeze out the excess water or using clean hands, squeeze the grated zucchini over a bowl. Discard the water.

Step 2Grate the halloumi, or you can use small cubes if you prefer.

Step 3Add the ghee or oil to a non stick or cast iron pan. Fry the onions on a medium-low heat for 3 - 4 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the garlic for a further 30 seconds. Remove from the heat. Whisk the eggs with a fork.

Step 4Chop the chorizo into small cubes or slices. Place the drained zucchini, halloumi, eggs, onion mix, chorizo, spinach, coriander, jalapeƱos into a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix well to combine.

Step 5Line a small baking tray with greaseproof paper. Spread the halloumi and chorizo traybake mix to the edges and top with cherry tomatoes (cut side up.)

Step 6Bake for 40 - 50 minutes until set and golden on top. Optionally, dab the top and tomatoes with kitchen paper after about half an hour to soak up any excess juices.

Step 7Allow to cool slightly, slice and top with optional sriracha sauce.
