Prep Time30 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time55 mins
 6 organic eggs beaten
 2 tbsp organic plain Greek yogurt or water
 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
 ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  tsp freshly grated nutmeg
 1 pinch sea salt
 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
 2 cups thinly sliced leeks, white and green parts
 4 cups stemmed and chopped Swiss chard, kale or spinach in bite-size pieces
 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
 2 tbsp freshly grated organic Parmesan cheese (optional)

Makes 6 servings


Position one oven rack about 6 inches below the broiler and another rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375° F.


Put the eggs, yogurt, thyme, pepper, nutmeg, and ½ teaspoon of salt in a bowl and whisk until the eggs are frothy and only very small lumps of yogurt remain.


Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the leeks and a pinch of salt and sauté until just golden, about 6 minutes. Put the Swiss chard on top of the leeks and sprinkle a pinch of salt over the chard. Cover and let the chard steam just until it begins to wilt, about 2 minutes. Arrange the tomatoes on top of the chard.


Pour the egg mixture over the tomatoes and make sure it seeps through the greens; you may need to gently shift the greens a bit to help with this. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top.


Bake on the center rack of the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until the eggs are set. Turn the oven to broil and move the skillet to the top rack. Broil for 1 minute, until the cheese and almond flours are golden brown. Serve hot or at room temperature.


Variations: Make this frittata dairy free by substituting 2 tablespoons of water for the yogurt and omitting the cheese. Feel free to substitute spinach or kale for the chard.
