Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Just Another Meatless Monday Poached Eggs in Swiss Chard


Just Another Meatless Monday Poached Eggs in Swiss Chard

Hey What's For Dinner

When life hands you fresh spring time eggs and excellent fresh swiss chard (NOT GROWN BY ME) it's time to put them together in a 'eat em if you got 'em recipe. Very timely, very spring-y, very delicious. This was actually inspired by a recipe in one of my favorite books of all time Animal Vegetable Miracle. If you have NOT read this book get yourself to the Library ASAP and check it out, good reading and good recipes! 

Poached Eggs in Swiss Chard

1 1/2 market bunches of Swiss Chard, washed excess water left on
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar+more for serving
1/2 cup water
8 eggs

heat a 12 inch frying pan over medium high heat
chop the stems of swiss chard and toss them in the pan
saute for a minute or two
tear the chard leaves into pieces and add to the pan
sprinkle with the vinegar and add the water
cook for 2-3 minutes until cooked down
make 8 indentations in the chard 
crack one egg in each hollow
salt and pepper the whole pan
cover and cook 5-6 minutes for runny poached eggs and 7-8 minutes for more well done eggs
serve with toast, butter or extra vinegar if desired

Peace and Love--



  1. Hi There,

    Yum yum! Your Swiss chard looks delicious! :-)

    This week I’m sharing two recipes:

    (1) Roasted Fingerling Carrots (fresh from the garden)


    (2) Grain Free Spanish “Rice” (SCD friendly)


    Have a great week.

    Be Well,

  2. I love eggs with greens, and your poached eggs with Swiss Chard looks and sounds so good! This week I have shared my Cheesy Vegetable Pasta Bake, which is full of delicious and nutritious veggies. Thank you for hosting!

  3. I love chard and I love poached eggs, so this sounds like a great combo! I've shared a gluten free biscuit recipe that I've used to wrap up some herbs in a style common in the Middle East. Very savory :)

  4. This is the perfect recipe for dinner tonight. Simple and healthy for our spring weather. Dinner time quickly sneaks up as we spend more and more time outdoors enjoying the sunshine we have been waiting for.


Am I talking DIRECTLY to you? Well then let me know!
