Vegetable Frittata

Made this as breakfast. It includes lot many healthy options. Easy to prepare, healthy to eat. I won second prize for this recipe as part of Savory Baking Competition held by an online group. I named so since i have used wide range of vegetables along with egg. If you don't like egg, you can use egg replacements (haven't tried it though with egg replacement :) ).
Ingredients :
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 small cucumbet [i used persian cucumber; zuccini can also be used]
2 green chillies finely chopped
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms [fresh or dried]
few beans, finely chopped
1/2 carrot thinly sliced
6 bok choy florets  nicely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
8 eggs (i used 6 egg whites and just 2 full eggs)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
small amount of Maggi Hot and Sweet sauce
Vegetable Frittata
Pre-heat oven for 400 degrees F.

Spread butter inside [all around] 8 inch pan.

Place onion, green chillies,cucumber, mushrooms, beans, carrots, bok choy in 8 inch pan. [Arrange one by one as shown in the pics]
Cook the vegetables in oven for 3-5 mins or until they become half crunchy, half baked.
Step-by-step process of vegetable frittata

Now, in a bowl, beat eggs, pour milk, add salt, pepper, hot & sweet sauce, whist altogether until the mixture is little bit fluffy with bubbles.
Pour the mixture on to the vegetables evenly.
Let it cook for 25 to 35 minutes.
For checking, poke with a fork in the middle and see if the fork come out clearly without food sticking to it. That is the right consistency of baking.
Once it is well cooked, take out of oven and let it cool down for couple of minutes, slice it into pieces, and serve it hot with oranges on the side :)   [don't forget to switch off the oven ;) ]
