Preheat oven to 200 °F (100 °C).

In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and sauté onion and Swiss chard for 5 minutes; reserve.

Coat cherry tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper; reserve.

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and toast pine nuts. Reserve in a small bowl.

Beat 2 eggs together and pour into the skillet. Evenly spread the egg over the bottom of the skillet. Flip over and place some Swiss chard and cheese in the centre of the omelette. Fold sides up toward the centre, forming a square and leaving an opening over the filling. Place in the oven to keep warm. Repeat the same steps to cook the other omelettes.

Serve with the cherry tomatoes garnished with pine nuts.
