I Have a New Fave Veggie

Posted by Brette in Food

Thank you Martha, for getting me to try Swiss chard. I remember my parents growing it and eating it when I was a kid, but I don’t recall ever tasting it myself. As a kid, I wasn’t big on greens. But now I’m finding that I really do like many greens.

chard omeletI made Martha’s Swiss Chard Frittata (June Martha Stewart Living). This was super easy. It’s essentially a quiche, but with no crust. I used cottage cheese instead of ricotta. I love that this is almost all egg whites with only one whole egg. It’s very light, but is also delicious and filling.

I love the color of Swiss chard – bright green and magenta. It’s just gorgeous.  I cooked some of the Swiss chard up on another night and basically just wilted it with a little olive oil and salt and pepper and I loved it. I am mad about spinach and this is very similar.  If you’re a bit iffy on greens, try this fritatta. You don’t really notice the chard in it very much.

I ate the leftover frittata for lunch the next day and confess I melted a little Swiss cheese on it, which made it taste even better I thought.
