Frittata of Swiss Chard Molokhia Onion and Pepper

Let me just say that there is one ingredient in this frittata that I had never heard of until Midtown MarketMolokhia. Have you? I thought it was an herb; but, no! molokhia is a form of spinach.  It looks like water spinach, to me. The leaves are small and numerous on each stalk -- a lot like purslane.  I had to taste a leaf to make sure. How exciting. It was absolutely delicious and definitely made me think of spinach. My Swiss chard was ready for harvesting and I was looking for a nice brunch recipe for a relaxed Sunday morning. This was so easy to prepare and absolutely delicious. 

Swiss Chard Molokhia Onion Pepper Frittata

4 eggs
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup chard, chopped
1/2 cup molokhia/spinach
1 small onion chopped
1/2 sweet red pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp anise
1/4 tsp mild curry
1/2 tsp sweet basil
1/8 tsp stevia

Preheat solar oven to 225°F. Use a lightly-greased casserole w/cover.

Mix all ingredients together. Pour into casserole; cover and bake in solar oven for 1.5 to 2 hours. Serve with toast, hot coffee, and the Sunday paper. This delicious brunch recipe will definitely be repeated.

If you ever find yourself facing this fascinating vegetable, I hope you'll give it a try.


  1. I have never heard of that either, but your recipe sounds delicious!

    1. I don't know why we hesitate to try new foods, but, we do. I think it's because I hate to waste money, even though, in the long run, it's really not that much to try something and, if it doesn't work, there's always peanut butter and jelly! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog & putting in ur kind words . Its wonderful going thru ur blog too .. I was unaware how much stuff can be pepped up in a solar oven. Loved ur recipes.

  3. Thanks for stopping by. I talked with the vendor on Saturday and he said that more and more people are coming to his spot just for the molokhia! He has many other exotic veggies, too, so I need to visit him more often.
