Chinese Tomato Egg Recipe
6 large eggs
4 small tomatoes diced (the riper the better) or 1 can diced tomatoes
(Basically you want the ratio of egg to tomato to be about the same)
1 table spoon tomato sauce
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 stalk green onions
2 table spoon water, milk or cream (optional – fluffier eggs)
1 tsp vegetable oil
salt to taste
white pepper to taste

Chinese Tomato Eggs Recipe

1. Add 2 tbs water or milk to eggs to make them fluffier and beat them in a bowl. Scramble the eggs in a pan with 1 tsp vegetable oil. After scrambling put them on a plate and set aside.
2. Add the diced tomatoes into the pan with the chicken broth and simmer for a minute.
3. Add tomato paste and mix into the diced tomatoes and let simmer for another minute.
4. Now add the scrambled eggs back into the pan and let everything simmer until tomatoes are soft.
5. Add a dash or two of white pepper and salt to taste.
6. Plate and top with chopped green onions.

That’s it! It’s very easy and great for a quick meal. I sometimes replace the tomatoes with a can of diced tomatoes. Not a preferred but it’s definitely easier and works if I don’t want to go to the grocery store. Also, if you used canned tomatoes then don’t add the tomato paste, you can just pour a little of the liquid in the can. Canned tomatoes already have a strong taste. I didn’t always use tomato paste but tomatoes in the store don’t taste that great. So if you grow your own tomatoes and make sure that they are ripe then they will taste much better and you may not need the tomato paste. Try your own take on it and see what happens.
