  1. Heat the oil in a 23cm frying pan over a low heat. Fry the onion for 10 mins until softened. Preheat the grill to medium.
  2. Blanch the bean mix for 2 mins. Drain and add to the onion. Turn the heat to high, toss and cook for 3 mins. Remove from the heat and mix the cheese in well.
  3. Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a jug, add the paprika and season well. Pour the eggs over the veg, then gently shake the pan to level. Cook for 3-4 mins over a medium heat until the base is set, then grill for 3-5 mins until set and golden.
