Egg and vegetable slice

Tonight I took a container of vegetable soup from the freezer for dinner, once thawed and heated it was only a small bowl of soup.  Maybe I had taken one of my lunch soups by mistake because an hour or so later I was hungry.    Now this would normally be dangerous, the time when I would  go searching for something naughty, something along the lines of unhealthy, but tonight as I was reading an article about incorporating more vegetables into our diets I felt guilty.     I still had eggs left from the gift my friends gave me, I had lots of vegetables, yoghurt, feta and mushrooms,  ok it will have to be an egg and vegetable slice.  I have to say that once it was cooked and I added a spoonful of my green tomato chutney on the plate it was delicious.  I'm still thinking of something decadent though, there is nothing in the house so I'll settle down with my knitting and a hot drink instead.
Egg and Vegetable Slice
This makes a small slice, possibly for 4 people with a side, if you need a larger slice add more of everything

5 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup of chopped vegetables, ( I used zucchini, roasted pumpkin, broccoli flowerets, spinach)
small handfull mushrooms, sliced
1/4 red or brown onion, chopped
20-30 gm piece of feta (If you don't have feta, just use any cheese, but the feta gives it a nice flavour)
1/4 cup greek yoghurt (optional)
1/4 cup milk ( you can use cream if you have)
Salt and pepper
Add the milk, yoghurt and salt and pepper to the egg mix, stir until combined.
Saute the onion in a little oil until transparent, line and spray a pan of your choice, place all the vegetables, and onion in the pan.  Place the cheese over the vegetables, spreading it out so there is even cover,. Pour the egg mixture over the top, I pushed most of the spinch under the egg mixture, although it still rose to the top.  Place in the oven 180c or 350 fahrenheit for about 30minutes, it will differ with each oven. To check it is cook just insert a knife into the centre where it should be cooked.    Adjust this as you like. Enjoy
