This amazing VEGAN! rainbow chard frittata brings back memories of my grandma making my sisters and I breakfast on special days we spent together. Frittatas can make a complete, nutritious breakfast. The deep earthy taste of swiss chard is intensified with garlic that is thinly sliced instead of minced, for a sweet mellow taste. Use red swiss chard if you can find it because it leaves pretty fuschia flecks in the frittata. This recipe uses our colorful Fresh, Organic Chard and Locally made tofu. If you’re not vegan, you could use our Local, Organic Eggs as well. Since all of our ingredients are Organic, that means GMO-Free!! Read on to get inspiration for your next home-cooked breakfast!
It’s finally August… it’s almost like you can smell the Fresh, Organic tomatoes in the air. With this abundance of heirlooms, plums, grapes, cherries, and romas, you might need some new ideas for using them.
Here we have a recipe for an uncooked sauce, which makes it perfect for a light dinner on a hot day. You can make the sauce hours ahead, allowing the oil and tomato to macerate, and then just add the pasta when you are ready to eat. This is also delicious over polenta, or even as a basic bruschetta topping. You can add green onions or some red pepper to it if you like, but I prefer to keep it simple. You can also add a pinch of vinegar or lemon juice to brighten up the taste. I like this with linguine, but any pasta you like is fine. Because this recipe is so simple, it is important to use Fresh, Organic ingredients. Why not try using Local heirloom tomatoes from Muth Farm, less than 80 miles from Nature’s Corner ?
