  • 10 - large eggs
  • 1/4 cups - water
  • 1/2 teaspoons - sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons - extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 - medium yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cups - or 6 cups (1 bunch) of chard or beet greens, large stems removed, leaves cut into thin ribbons
  • 3 ounces - crumbled feta cheese or chèvre (goat cheese)
  • Directions:

    1. Preheat broiler. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, water, and salt; season with freshly ground black pepper.

    2. Place a heavy, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil; when hot, add onion and sauté until translucent, stirring frequently, about 8 minutes. Add greens and sauté 3-5 minutes, until wilted and tender.

    3. Add egg mixture and let sit in pan until cooked layer forms on bottom. With a spatula, gently lift cooked edges, tilting pan to allow uncooked egg to fill in bottom (do not stir). Top with cheese. When eggs are almost set (still wet and jiggling on top), place under broiler until puffed and golden, about 3 minutes.

    4. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve.
