It's the season of Swiss chard and kale. We got lots of these fresh leafy greens from our CSA farm, and I was trying to come out an idea to use them up, surfing the internet, found a recipe in New York Times, it's a chard and feta phyllo tart. Definitely got the inspiration, I used both chard and kale, instead of feta, I used cheddar; and I sauteed some fresh mushrooms and added some toasted pine nuts, which worked very well, also I used a pie plate instead of a tart pan. And it was a great success, absolutely flavorful and delicious, the phyllo crust came out flakey and crispy. Will definitely become one of my signature recipes :)
This quiche uses potatoes on the bottom in place of the crust. Swiss chard sauteed with garlic give the egg custard more flavor and texture. Goat cheese on top gives lovely bursts of flavor, very tasty.
Found this recipe in donna hay magazine, and I just happened to have all the ingredients this recipe called for. I did make a few changes and cook it differently. The frittata came out delicious, but next time I will cook it on the stove top first to give a nicely browed bottom, then broil at the last a few minutes.
