  • 1 big bunch swiss chard, around 2 pounds
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 package store-bought puff pastry (approx 14 ounces)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Bring a medium pot of unsalted water to a boil.
  • Cut swiss chard stems into 1/4-inch pieces and leaves into bigger chunks. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, thinly slice the onion.
  • Heat olive oil in a sauté pan and fry onion slices until soft and translucent.
  • Once swiss chard is ready, drain in a colander and squeeze out any extra liquid with a spoon. Transfer it into the pan together with the onion, toss for a couple of minutes and turn off the heat.
  • Add Ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, a dash of salt and pepper, and 3 of the eggs. Mix everything together.
  • Place puff pastry into a 10-inch baking pan or pie plate.
  • Pour in the vegetable and cheese mixture into the baking pan, and even the surface with the help of a wooden spoon.
  • Finally, beat the remaining egg and brush it on top of the quiche.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the crust turns golden brown.
