Instructions

  1. 1
    Heat a medium pot over medium-low heat and add 1 teaspoons of olive oil. Add the garlic and sauté 1 minute. Add the chard and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender and wilted, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. 2
    Heat a nonstick, 9-inch skillet over medium heat and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  3. 3
    Whisk 1 egg and 1 egg whites in a bowl and pour into the skillet, tilting it back and forth to cover the bottom with a smooth layer of egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. 4
    When the egg is set (1-2 minutes), slide it onto a plate and repeat with the remaining eggs.
  5. 5
    Divide the tomato slices on top of the two omelets. Divide the wilted chard mixture on top of the tomatoes and sprinkle each with feta and pepitas (pumpkin seeds).
  6. 6
    Serve right away.

Step by Step Photos

step 1
Omelets aren't just for breakfast, or always served folded. These light, quick dinner omelets, served open faced, are big on flavor and low on ingredients. The key is to choose a few toppings that complement each other while each brings its own great taste and texture to the dish.
step 2
Four packed cups of chopped chard may sound like a lot for two servings, but greens of any kind cook down really fast and really small.
step 3
Mince garlic and finely chop your chard. Then in your skillet heat oil, and add oil. Next add chard.
step 4
Note: If you don't have a 9 inch skillet, an 8 or 10 inch will work. The omelet will simply be a little thicker in the 8 inch and thinner in the 10. The time it takes for the egg to set will differ slightly as well.
step 5
step 6
Put omelets on a plate and add thinly sliced tomato.
step 7
Finally add your chard, feta and pumpkin seeds.
step 8
Here, fresh chard and garlic sauteed in olive oil add earthy richness, while thin slices of roma tomato add a bit of sweetness. Feta cheese and pepitas (small pumpkin seeds, sold in most bulk-food sections) finish the dish with a little salty bite and crunch.
