Delicious. Mine was a bit too peppery but I think I added too much ground pepper and the chard was a bit spicy as well.

I wasn't sure about the fennel, because I'm not a huge fan, but because of de the dressing and the juicy orange, it wasn't overpowering and actually realy tasty!

Loved this. Used a whole onion and garlic when cooking the veggies. We won't have an oven safe skillet so after cooking the veggies we transfered them to a pie pan and added the egg. Turned out great!
