Rainbow Chard and Onion Omelet

rainbow chard omelete 2

If I had to choose one food to eat for days in a row, I would choose an omelet. They are so versatile and easy to make. I can pull any vegetable out of the fridge, add some sausage or cheese or both, and make a quick protein dinner. I especially love them in the spring because I have a lot of various produce from CSA boxes and farmers’ markets. This one is made with rainbow chard and caramelized onions. I made the onions over the weekend because they take a lot of time to properly cook. The rest of the veggies are quick sautéed and I added the cold onions to the pan so they could reheat and mix with the greens. Add eggs and cheese and flip it!
