Roasted Tomato & Feta Frittata

with Swiss Chard & Kale

A simple supper or quick brunch meal made with in-season greens & lots of tasty savoury flavours with swiss chard, roasted tomatoes, feta + greens. A Frittata, at its essence, is an open-faced omelette; it is much easier to cook with lots of vegetables than an omelette. 

 

I used a local goat’s milk feta made by the talented artisans at Coppertail Farm ~ what a treat; their cheeses are truly excellent!
