This recipe for Skillet Rainbow Chard, Garlic Scapes + Eggs is a quick and easy vegetarian skillet recipe that utilizes a ton of late spring veggies and is full of flavor. It’s a simple one-pan meal made with a combination of rainbow chard, garlic scapes, scallions and poached eggs. If you like Shakshuka, you will like this very green and flavorful version! Not only is this a great weeknight dinner, but is also a wonderful brunch dish. I love to serve this meal with a side of toasted baguette slices topped with delicious salted butter.

  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 bunch scallions thinly sliced, whites and greens separated
  • 1 bunch rainbow chard, stems sliced and leaves chopped
  • 3 garlic scapes, thinly sliced
  • ¼ tsp sea salt, plus more to taste
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 large eggs
  • Toasted baguette slices, for serving (optional)

In a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons oil, chard stems and scallion whites and cook for about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the garlic scapes, salt and red pepper and cook for another 3 minutes, until they begin to get a slight golden color.
Add the chard leaves, scallion greens, and water, and cook over medium-low, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
Taste the greens and adjust the seasonings.
Push the greens and make four circles to make room for the eggs. Crack eggs into the each circle that you made in the greens. Cover pan completely and cook until eggs are cooked to taste, 5-7 minutes.
Garnish with crushed red pepper flakes and serve with toasted baguette sliced topped with butter.

    What are garlic scapes and where do I find them?

    • Gourmet Mami Gourmet Mami on Jul 12, 2021

      Hi Gloria!

      Garlic scapes are the shoots that grow out of garlic bulbs. You can typically find them at a farmers market. If you are unable to find them, you can simply use about half the amount of garlic cloves, so for this recipe use 1 or 2 cloves thinly sliced. I hope this helps!
