Meatless Monday: Rainbow Chard Omelet

Rainbow Chard Omelet
Is there anything better than coming home?

Your dog greeting you at the door, bursting with profound joy. Sleeping deeply in your own bed. I never sleep well when I'm traveling, let alone smashed into a bunk bed in a cabin more suited to eight-year-old's. Not feeling guilty about parading around in dirty sweats all day long. The warm embrace of loved ones, and that moment after having been apart, where you simply want to be together. Not worry, not bicker, not banter, not disappear into the man cave, not even talk...

Did I mention my dog? He's on my porch, rolling around on the futon, looking like a big mess of fluffiness. If that isn't happiness, then I don't know what is...

And then there's breakfast. It's my favorite meal of the day. Cooking it for myself -- just me, myself, and I -- feels like an act of extreme self-love. Eating it while perusing the New York Times (a lot of radiant news this morning) and sipping green tea. Still in my dirty sweats with my unwashed hair. Is there anything better? I challenge you to prove me wrong. Is there? Is there?

Meatless Monday has found it in their little veggie hearts to feature another of my recipes (I publish them every Monday). This little gem is a favorite of mine -- Rainbow Chard Omelet. Isn't is lovely? Try it out. I swear you'll love it.

  1. Camp Blogaway was a boatload of fun... coming home to my silly, old cat and handsome husband was a calming, warm experience too. Great meeting you -- hope to get together here in the concrete jungle.

  2. Average Betty, you are anything but average! Let's def go on safari in the jungle soon... I had such a blast with you over the weekend. xoxo

  3. Hi Jennifer: Love this rainbow chard omelet - I have a great rainbow chard grower at my farmers' market and I'm always looking for new ideas for how to use it. And yeah, I hear you on the comforts of home!
    Enjoyed meeting you this weekend - hope to see you again at another food event!
    p.s. We haven't tried the little Saag sausages yet, but I have to tell you that the sausage tattoos were a HUGE hit with my little boys. :)

  4. Jeane, I really enjoyed meeting you, too. I hope we can stay in touch. I love that we have this fabulous food blogger community. I'm also glad your kids like the tattoos! If you're interested in getting a free sampler pack of Saag's to try out at home and/or review, let me know. I can put you in touch with their PR. All bias aside, they're super delicious and a very cool small, family run company out of San Fran. I especially love their Naturals line. xoxo

  5. It was so great to meet you at Camp Blogaway this weekend! This recipe sounds should totally consider entering one of your meatless meal recipes in our contest next week! I am sure you have a bunch of winners up your sleeve :)

  6. I LOVED meeting you, too. I'll make sure to check out your contest next week. It would be so fun to enter. I'm always working on great meatless recipes (and have one in mind to cook next week). :)
