It will take you 30 minutes to make it and you can experiment with this recipe by adding your favourite veggies.

Preheat the oven to 200° C. Cut the broccoli florets and the red bell pepper in smaller pieces.
In a pan (choose one that is oven friendly) heat the oil over medium heat. Cook the red onion until it softens. Add the bell pepper and cook for another 3 minutes. Add the broccoli florets and a tbsp. of water and continue to cook until the broccoli is tender. Occasionally stir.
Season the vegetables with salt and pepper and place these in a dish. Whisk the eggs and egg whites in a large bowl and season to taste. Add the vegetables and cheese and mix everything together. Pour the mixture back in the pan and place it in the oven. Bake for approx. 15 minutes and then remove from oven.
