“I used to eat this every morning as a child. It takes some time, but is very low-hassle. To lower steaming time, microwave the water for 1-2 minutes before mixing with the egg. If you want to be fancy, you can add stuff like mushrooms, dried shrimps and scallops, etc.”

YIELD:
1 bowl
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup water (can use 3/4 cup for harder egg and 1 1/4 cup water if you want really soft eggs, etc in between, to )
  • 1 dash salt (half tsp)
  • 1 dash pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon black vinegar (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

Directions

  1. Whisk eggs, water, salt, and pepper in bowl or cup.
  2. place bowl in steamer (simple way to do this is to bring water to a boil in a pot and place the bowl in the pot on a stand and close the lid, if you don't have a steamer available).
  3. steam for 15 minutes.
  4. add vinegar and sesame oil, and mix up with a spoon and eat. I know not everyone likes the vinegar. It has a special flavor. Leave it out if you wish. I do leave it out if I add goodies like mushrooms and stuff.
