Swiss chard is one of my favorite leafy green vegetables, and it’s so easy to cook. You can eat the leaves and the stems (just cook the stems a little longer since they’re tougher). It’s an excellent source of vitamins K, A, and C, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants, and fiber. This lightened up frittata uses half egg whites and half whole eggs. If you want to cook more with Swiss chard, try my Chicken Cassoulet with Sausage and Swiss Chard and Swiss Chard Eggs Benedict.

Is a frittata just a crustless quiche?

Frittatas and crustless quiches are similar but do have some differences:

  • Less dairy: The only dairy in this frittata is ¼ cup of Swiss cheese. Since a quiche is a custard, it will have some form of liquid dairy, like cream, milk, or half and half.
  • Cook faster: Once you add the eggs, this frittata is ready in under 15 minutes. Quiches usually take about 35 to 40 minutes to bake.
  • Cooking Method: Frittatas typically start out cooking on the stove and finish in the oven. Quiches bake the whole time in the oven.

Can you make a frittata ahead of time and reheat?

Vegetable frittatas are great for meal prep. You can make them ahead and reheat in the microwave before serving. It will last in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

What to Serve with Swiss Chard Frittata

This Swiss chard frittata is the perfect meatless dinner paired with a salad and some crusty bread. You can also serve it for breakfast or brunch with fresh fruit, bagels, or by itself.

Variations:

  • Greens: Sub collard greens, kale, or spinach for Swiss chard if it’s unavailable.
  • Cheese: Swap Swiss cheese for feta, goat, or Parmesan cheese.
  • Vegetables: Add mushrooms or bell pepper for an extra veggie.
  • Eggs: Swap egg whites for whole eggs.
