Slice of Chard and Onion Quiche

Chard and Onion Quiche

Melt the butter in a large skillet. Slice the onion into rounds and place in the skillet on medium-heat. Add 1/4 cup broth or water. Cover with a lid and cook for ten minutes. While the onion is cooking, remove the stems from the chard and chop into small pieces. After ten minutes, add the chard stems. Add another 1/4 cup of broth if the skillet needs some moisture. Cook for five more minutes with the lid on. Chop the chard leaves and pack into a 4 cup measuring cup. When five minutes is up, add the chopped Swiss chard leaves to the skillet. Add more broth if needed. Cook 5-8 minutes until the Swiss chard is thoroughly wilted. As you continue cooking the vegetables will release fluids.

Remove from heat. Strain the vegetable mixture. Beat the six eggs. Place the vegetable mix into the pie crust. Pour in the beaten eggs. Cook for 20 minutes at 350°F.
