- 5 eggs
- 1 cup cream or yoghurt
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese divided into two
- ¼ cup red onions chopped
- 1 cup spring onions chopped
- 1 cup pre-roasted pumpkin (optional)
- 1 bunch of broccolini chopped into 3 cm pieces
- ¼ cup parsley or basil chopped
- ½ cup cherry tomatoes sliced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Olive oil
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
In a bowl, mix together eggs, ½ of the mozzarella, cream or yoghurt, parsley or basil, salt and pepper.
In a cast iron pan, add a little olive oil and add the broccolini and red onions, and cook over a medium heat till the onions are cooked through.
Add spring onions and continue to cook for 2 mins. Turn off heat. If using pumpkin, add now.
Add egg mixture on top of the cooked vegetables and add reserved mozzarella cheese and sliced cherry tomatoes.
Bake for around 35 min till the centre does not wiggle anymore.
Remove from oven let it sit for 5 mins – it will deflate a little.
