  • 1 cup of cooked Lundberg Organic Quinoa & Rice – Spanish Style side dish or your favorite variety
  • 1 bunch of Rainbow Chard, ribs removed from leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoons olive oil (use the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes!)
  • 7 eggs
  • ¼ cup of milk
  • Salt and black pepper

Sun-dried Tomato and Balsamic Compote:

  • ⅓ cup of sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, coarsely diced
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 1-2 Tbsp water


Preheat oven to 400⁰F. Thoroughly grease a non-stick 9″ cake pan with cooking spray or oil.

Slice rainbow chard rib into small pieces and cut leaves into 1″ wide ribbons.

In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced chard ribs and sauté until tender about 5 minutes. Add the chard leaves and sauté until wilted, about 3 minutes, add minced garlic, pinch of salt and pepper and cook for an additional minute.

in a large bowl, beat eggs until slightly frothy, add 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and milk. Stir in rice and sautéed chard.

Pour mixture into prepared cake pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and slightly puffed.

While the frittata bakes, blend together the ingredients for the compote until fairly smooth and homogenous, start with 1 Tbsp of water and if it is too thick add the other.

Remove frittata from the oven, and allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.

Cut frittata into wedges and serve with a dollop of sun-dried tomato and balsamic compote.
