DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the chard very well to remove grit and sand; shake it to remove excess water.
  • Tear chard into bite-size pieces onto a plate.
  • Add a few T. filtered water to a large skillet. Place skillet over high heat and add chard and minced shallot.
  • Cover and let steam about 3 minutes.
  • While the chard is cooking, snip the basil leaves into the same small bowl containing the beaten eggs; mix through.
  • Remove lid from skillet and cook a bit longer until water in skillet is absorbed.
  • Add some of your favorite oil and heat it.
  • 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).
  • Add pepper and asiago cheese to taste. Add red pepper flakes if using.
  • Cook a moment longer - just enough to melt or soften the cheese.
  • Serve.
