SERVES: 5 | ACTIVE TIME: 20 MIN

INGREDIENTS

  • 10 large, pastured eggs
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard (remove leaves from stems, chop leaves, and coarsely chopped stems)
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into 1/2″ cubes (~2 cups cubed)
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup organic feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt

PREPARATION

  • Roast Potatoes: Heat oven to 420°F. Toss the sweet potato in 1 Tbsp olive oil + pinch of salt (notice no mention of peeling) and get that potato roasting in for 30-40 minutes, or until tender, then set aside to cool.
  • Sauté Veggies: With remaining Tbsp of olive oil, sauté the chopped Swiss chard stems (stems take longer, so cook them before the leaves) with minced garlic over medium-high heat for ~5 min. Add the leaves and continue to sauté another ~2-3 min.
  • Whisk + Mix Eggs: In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until airy and fluffy. Stir in the basil, cooked sweet potatoes and chard, + 1/4 cup feta.
  • Bake It: Spray or butter a 9″ pie pan (better yet, use a cast iron skillet for extra iron), then pour in the egg-veggie mixture. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup feta evenly across the top. Bake for ~30 minutes until the top is slightly browned and a knife comes out clean.
