Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 13 minutes

Total time: 18 minutes

Servings: 2 to 3

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of plum tomatoes (4 to 5)
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 5 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons of chicken bouillon powder
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 green onion, trimmed and sliced, for garnish
  • 2 cups of steamed jasmine rice (optional, for serving)

Method:

1. Slice the tomatoes in half and remove the stem that connects to the vine. Cut each half into equal thirds, resulting in 6 tomato slices per tomato.

2. In an 8 to 10-inch nonstick skillet, add the vegetable oil and beaten eggs. Turn the heat to medium. As a thin layer of eggs begins to cook on the bottom, gently push the eggs in one direction to create layers of scrambled eggs. Continue stirring until the eggs are mostly set but still slightly wet and shiny, which should take around 2 to 5 minutes. Transfer the scrambled eggs to a plate and wipe out the pan if necessary.

3. Add the sesame oil to the pan, followed by the tomatoes. Stir-fry over medium heat until the tomatoes are softened but not mushy, which usually takes about 3 minutes. Add in the chicken bouillon powder, sugar, and white pepper. Toss the ingredients together until everything is well combined and the sugar and bouillon have dissolved approximately 1 minute.

4. Place the scrambled eggs back into the pan with the tomatoes. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes to heat through and combine all the flavors. Taste the dish and if needed, add salt sparingly. Sprinkle the stir fry with sliced green onions for added freshness. Serve alongside steamed jasmine rice, if desired.
