  • 2 Medium sweet potatoes thinly sliced
  • 1 Red onion thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 Bunch of chard sliced into strips
  • 8 Eggs beaten


  • Heat the oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the potato and onion slices, stir to mix and coat with oil.
  • Add the garlic and mix in.
  • Cover and let cook until potatoes are soft, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Put the sliced chard on top of the potatoes and cover.
  • Cook another couple of minutes so the chard wilts.
  • Pour the beaten eggs over the chard and cover, cooking another 5-8 minutes, or until the eggs are mostly set.
  • Loosen the edges with a spatula and carefully slide the torta onto a plate.
  • Put the pan on top of the plate and invert so that the torta is back in the pan upside-down.
  • Cover and cook a few more minutes, until the eggs are cooked through.
  • Slice and serve.
