Cook time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  1. Dice tomatoes.
  2. Slice green onions. Keep white and green parts separate.
  3. In small bowl, mix cornstarch with 1 1/2 tsp of water.
  4. Beat eggs together. Add salt, white parts of green onions, and sesame oil. Mix well.
  5. Add olive oil to skillet and heat to medium. Add egg mixture. Stir and break into pieces as the eggs cook. Remove from skillet before completely cooked.

This Chinese dish is a good alternative to typical American scrambled eggs. Recently I have used 4 Roma tomatoes with 4 eggs, but you can use any type of tomato.
