Simple College Cooking 101: Episode 2: Tomato Scrambled Eggs
This is actually a Taiwanese (or generally Chinese?) dish called 番茄炒蛋, which is literally translated as tomato fried egg. It’s a dish that’s easy to make and highly satisfying, so I’ve put up the recipe again!
Tomato Scrambled Eggs (番茄炒蛋):
- two large eggs, beaten
- one medium tomato, de-seeded and diced
- cooking oil
- Add 1 tbsp of the cooking oil to a warmed skillet and saute the diced tomato on high for about one minute.
- Add salt and pepper to the tomato, then allow some of the liquid from the tomato to evaporate.
- Gather the tomato pieces into the center of the skillet, and then add the beaten egg directly on top of the tomato.
- Let the egg set for approximately one minute, and then flip.
*Note: the more liquid you leave in the the pan from the tomatoes, the more the eggs will fall apart and refuse to stay in larger chunks.
