Default Rooted nexus 5 and OTA updates Google?

Is there any way to possibly make a rooted Nexus 5 continue to receive OTA updates from Google?
If so, please advise the best way

Thanks

So in this case I can still receive OTA updates from Google even with the bootloader unlocked and custom recovery by just leaving the stock firmware/ROM on the phone?
