Written by Gryphon

Chard, Herb and Potato Omelette may sound boring but the flavours are amazing. This healthy recipe is perfect with smoked trout for a brunch that will have family asking for more. The simple addition of caraway seeds adds a fennel flavour that takes this dish to a new level and the mustard and chillies give the dish a hit you don’t expect. Chard, Herb and Potato Omelette is a superb vegetarian dish that is easy to cook and the addition of Trout supplies a new flavour and texture.  Whilst the soft chard provides a spinach-ish flavour that makes everything blend so well. A boring sounding dish becomes a delight to eat.
