Chard and Saffron Omelette

This unique omelette recipe from Plenty uses piles of shredded swiss chard, a handful of herbs, garlic, and lemon juice to put a very savory spin on the traditional omelette. Finely chopped potato is cooked with saffron, and then swiss chard is added, just long enough to soften. The herbs are beat with egg, and then, when the omelette is just solid – mine got a little “golden”- it’s slid out of the pan and filled with creme fraiche (or greek yogurt) infused with fresh garlic, then filled with the potato/chard mixture and folded. More than filling, very delicious.
