Here is another quick egg thing I do sometimes when time is at a minimum, but I want to eat something healthy and delicious.
Egg foo young is a cross between a stir fry and and omelet. You can pretty much add any vegetables or meat you like to it and it will be delicious!
Here's what I used:
I chopped up about a cup of spinach, 1/2 c. sugar snap peas, and half of a zucchini. I beat together 3 eggs and 1 T. water with a dash of black pepper.
In my skillet, I put 1 T. canola oil and 1 t. sesame oil. I heated the skillet on high heat and then stir fried the veggies for about 1 minute.
Then, I poured the egg on top. Rather than stirring the mixture, I gently push the sides of the egg toward the center as the edges become cooked, then tilt the pan to let the raw egg move out to the edges. The whole process takes about 2 minutes.
Then, I carefully cut the foo young in half and flipped each half over. If you're brave, you can try flipping the whole thing at once. Or make two smaller pancakes!
The second side only needs to be cooked about 1 minute more. I served mine with ramen noodles on the side!
To make "side dish" ramen noodles, simply cook the ramen according to the package directions, drain off the liquid, and toss with 1 T. sesame oil and 2 T. soy sauce.
This whole meal took me about 7 minutes from start to finish. It was delicious! Enjoy and let me know if you try it!
