Lightly saute the chard, tomatoes & half the herbs in the olive oil (in a large ovenproof skillet) for a few minutes until softened
Remove a 1 cup of the cooked vegetables and set aside
Pour the whisked "egg mixture" over the sauteed vegetables
Sprinkle the grated cheese over this and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes
Remove from the stove top and place the remaining vegetables on top
Put the skillet into the pre-heated oven for 16 - 20 minutes or until the top is golden and bubbling
