Egg Fu Yung (Eggs With Vegetables)
There are so many ingredients you can add to eggs, so what are you waiting for? Eggs are a super nutritious food chock-full of protein, choline, Vitamin D and lots of other nutrients you need for good health.They’re also fast and easy to prepare so you can have a healthy meal in minutes. I normally like to whip up some scrambled eggs for breakfast or dinner.
If you’re tired of the same old plate of eggs, consider these ingredients you can add to eggs to give them plenty of flavor and keep things fresh at mealtime. Very often I normally have a small bit of meat leftover at dinnertime. Instead of tossing it, try adding it to your eggs. Thinly slice the meat and add it to the pan for a couple of minutes before putting the eggs in. That way it’s hot, but not overcooked. Try adding sliced steak, chicken breast, ham, pork chops or salmon. I can personally attest to the tasty flavor of each of these choices. You won’t be sorry!
I love to sauté a few chopped vegetables in a pan with butter until soft. Then I add the beaten eggs.This creates a yummy take on an omelet that doesn’t require as much effort, but tastes just as good. Bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach are delicious choices. You can also sprinkle raw vegetables over cooked eggs if you prefer them that way.
Today I have a recipe for you made with all fresh vegetables, everything that comes in the can but fresh! They sure were good, of course I like bean sprouts a lot so the crunch of the fresh was heavenly. I started out to make just vegetable- "Egg Fu Yung" but remembered that by adding some cooked chicken will defiantly enhance the flavor more.My kids would love it as both can go crazy when it comes to-" EGGS"
There is something magical about a good omelette – the way a couple of eggs and a pinch of salt can, in less than a minute, achieve such greatness.
Light, yet rich in flavor, swift, but satisfying, the omelette is the ultimate with the amount of vegetables added to make ones tummy filled!!!
All it takes is a few eggs, crisp vegetables and Asian seasonings to create an elegant dish that is perfect for breakfast, a main entrée or late night snack. Egg Fu Fung is another favorite Chinese dish of mine. If you’ve never had it,Egg Fu Fung is basically a Chinese omelette, except somehow it’s so much better than that sounds. It has the most incredible flavor, and is packed full of veggies.
