Recipe 20: Tomato and Egg (Fānqié jīdàn)

One of the first things people tend to eat in China is egg and tomato (xīhóngshì jīdàn if you’re a northerner). It pretty much works for any meal (although I like to have it as a soup for breakfast). It’s a really simple dish to make, and Erika made it in less than 15 minutes.

The Recipe (3-4 servings)

What you need:

  • 3 eggs, scrambled
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 medium tomato, cubed
  • Peanut oil

What to do:

  1. Fry eggs in peanut oil, using a spatula to constantly move it around (to fry evenly, more necessary for a hot plate than a stove)
  2. Add the tomato, salt, and pepper.
  3. Stir-fry about 10-15 minutes until tomatoes are a little soft and eggs are fully cooked
