SUMMER FRIENDLY RECIPES!
Mini crustless quiche with rainbow chard and feta
- 1 small red onion, minced
- 1 bunch rainbow chard, stems removed and diced; leaves chopped
- 8 large omega-3 eggs
- 1/4 cup 2% milk
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh black pepper
- 1/2 cup feta cheese
Preheat oven to 325 F.
In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp cooking oil. Once heated, add onions and diced chard stems. Cook over medium-high heat until onions and chard soften and become translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add the chopped chard leaves and toss with the onions and stems until the chard wilts, about 2-3 minutes, over medium-low heat so that the chard does not brown or become crispy.
In a large bowl, add the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper and beat with a whisk. Stir in the feta cheese and prepared veggie mixture.
Prepare two standard muffin tins by adding a thin layer of butter or olive oil into each tin. Spoon the egg mixture into each section filling about half way.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until mini quiches are lightly browned and top has set. Cool for 10 minutes and serve.

Part of the beet family, a mix of Swiss chard, red chard and golden chard - is a great summer vegetable that is very often overlooked.
Full of vitamins and minerals, rainbow chard is an excellent source of vitamin K, A and C and is high in antioxidants, making it a superfood! Its leaves can be sautéed as a side dish or added into a stir-fry or its stems can simply be eaten raw with your favorite summer dip.
