    coconutty's Note:

    Posted so that I don't forget about it. I made this up with ingredients I had lying around. If it flops as an omelet -- which occasionally happens when I don't use enough oil and/or the skillet isn't hot enough when I begin -- it will still make great scrambled eggs. The chard and shallot are steamed instead of sauteed to make it lower fat. Use a skillet with a tight-fitting lid.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse the chard very well to remove grit and sand; shake it to remove excess water.
    2. 2
      Tear chard into bite-size pieces onto a plate.
    3. 3
      Add a few T. filtered water to a large skillet. Place skillet over high heat and add chard and minced shallot.
    4. 4
      Cover and let steam about 3 minutes.
    5. 5
      While the chard is cooking, snip the basil leaves into the same small bowl containing the beaten eggs; mix through.
    6. 6
      Remove lid from skillet and cook a bit longer until water in skillet is absorbed.
    7. 7
      Add some of your favorite oil and heat it.
    8. 8
      When the oil is hot enough, add the egg/basil combination. Tilt the pan to distribute the eggs evenly. Let cook a couple of minutes to set the eggs (if you want, you can cover the skillet at this point and use a lower heat because the contained steam will cook the eggs).
    9. 9
      Add pepper and asiago cheese to taste. Add red pepper flakes if using.
    10. 10
      Cook a moment longer - just enough to melt or soften the cheese.
    11. 11
      Serve.
