Recipe Creation: Rainbow Chard + Goat Cheese Frittata

On Sunday morning we were grappling between going out to brunch and making something at home.  What swayed the decision was a quickly wilting bunch of rainbow chard that was sitting in my fridge and feeling neglected.  So, I decided to chop it up, sauté it with some sweet onions, add eggs and goat cheese and voila- you have yourself a gorgeous frittata.  Its uber healthy, beautiful to look at, and very tasty.  Plus, you can stay in your PJs all morning long.

Serves 4


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 1 bunch rainbow chard
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


-Preheat the broiler.
-Heat the oil in a heavy ovenproof 10-12 inch skillet over medium-high heat.
-Stir in the onions, cover and cook for about 5 minutes.
-Add the chard and cook for another 3 minutes, or until wilted.
-Pour in the eggs and a pinch of salt and cook over medium-low until the eggs are set.
-Sprinkle with goat cheese and place under the broiler for a few minutes, or until puffed up and set.
-Season with salt and pepper and serve with a drizzle of olive oil.
