Swiss Chard and Potato Frittata

Serves 4


6 eggs

1/2 pound of Swiss chard, washed and chopped

1/2 pound of potatoes, peeled and diced

1 onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat your oven to 375°F.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs together with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

In an oven-safe skillet, heat the extra-virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion is translucent.

Add the diced potatoes to the skillet and stir to coat them evenly with the oil.

Cover the skillet and cook the potatoes for 5-7 minutes, or until they are tender and lightly browned.

Add the chopped Swiss chard to the skillet and stir to combine.

Pour the whisked eggs over the vegetable mixture in the skillet.

Sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese over the top of the egg and vegetable mixture.

Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake the Swiss Chard and Potato Frittata for 15-20 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the cheese is golden brown.

Remove the skillet from the oven and let the frittata cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Serve the Swiss Chard and Potato Frittata as a main dish, accompanied by a simple salad or some crusty bread.

This recipe is both delicious and sustainable because it features Swiss chard, which is a seasonal and locally-grown vegetable, and eggs, which are a protein-rich and sustainably-produced ingredient. By using potatoes instead of bread crumbs, you can create a gluten-free and eco-friendly frittata. Plus, by baking the frittata instead of frying it, you can reduce the use of oil and create a healthier and lighter dish. Enjoy your Swiss Chard and Potato Frittata!
