  • 2 zucchini, sliced or grated
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 pepper (bell pepper), diced
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 eggs
  • 20-30 ml olive oil
  • 50 ml milk
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 70-100g cheese (such as cheddar or mozzarella), grated
  • 70g yogurt
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • Dill, chopped
  • Parsley or cilantro, chopped
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Paprika, to taste


  1. Prepare the Vegetables:
    • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
    • Add the chopped onion, grated carrot, and diced pepper. Sauté until the vegetables are softened, about 3-4 minutes.
    • Stir in the sliced or grated zucchini and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until slightly tender.
    • Add the halved cherry tomatoes and cook for another minute.
  2. Make the Egg Mixture:
    • In a bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and flour until smooth. This will help thicken the mixture slightly.
    • Season the egg mixture with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  3. Combine and Cook:
    • Pour the egg mixture over the sautéed vegetables in the skillet. Stir gently to combine.
    • Allow the mixture to cook without stirring for a few minutes, just until the eggs begin to set around the edges.
  4. Add Cheese and Herbs:
    • Sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the top of the cooking eggs and vegetables.
    • Cover the skillet with a lid, reduce the heat to low, and let cook until the eggs are fully set and the cheese has melted, about 3-5 minutes.
  5. Prepare the Yogurt Sauce:
    • While the eggs are cooking, mix the yogurt, mayonnaise, minced garlic, and a bit of chopped dill in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve:
    • Once the eggs are cooked and the cheese is melted, sprinkle the dish with chopped parsley or cilantro.
    • Serve hot, accompanied by the garlic yogurt sauce on the side.


  • Variations: Feel free to add other vegetables such as spinach or mushrooms to the dish for added flavor and nutrients.
  • Serving Suggestions: This dish can be served on its own or alongside a slice of crusty bread or over a bed of cooked quinoa for a more filling meal.
