Trouchia is simply a Swiss chard frittata flavored with Parmesan cheese, a classic French egg dish. It was featured on the Martha Stewart show today. It sounded so simple and wonderful, I knew I had to try it. And it was just that!
For one serving, simply divide the ingredients by 4.
8 large eggs
8 c. thinly sliced Swiss chard leaves
1 1/3 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c. plus 2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
1 t. sea salt
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
freshly ground pepper
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs. Add chard, cheese, 1/4 c. olive oil, salt and cayenne pepper; season with black pepper, and stir to combine.
Heat 2 T. olive oil in a 10" nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture and reduce heat to low. Cover and let cook until eggs are set, 10-12 min. Holding the lid tightly to cover skillet, invert and turn trouchia onto lid. Gently slide trouchia into pan and cook until bottom is golden, 2-3 min.
Cut into wedges and serve immediately.
