Tofu and omelette

Another not-too-chewy dinner last night, in case Andy broke off his filling again! I made a tofu dish based on this recipe. I chose to use oyster sauce instead for the gravy and skipped the egg.

Silken tofu topped with prawns and shitake mushrooms in oyster sauce, garnished with spring onions.
Tofu with prawns and mushroom

Cut a box of silken tofu into cubes and put in a dish. Put the chopped prawns and sliced shitake in a pan and saute till cooked, then add in 2 tbsp of oyster sauce and some water. Add in 1 tbsp of cornflour (mixed with a little water to form a watery paste) slowly, stirring to prevent lumps. Simmer the mixture until the gravy thickens and then 1 tsp of sesame oil. Microwave the tofu for a few minutes to warm it up and pour the prawns and mushroom mixture over the top. Garnish with chopped spring onions.

It went with a favourite childhood dish that always reminds me of home. Finely sliced french beans and egg in an omelette. It may not look the prettiest but it's so delicious, and healthy too.

Green beans omelette

Finely slice 100g of green beans and put into a large bowl. Crack in two large eggs and mix well, adding 1 tsp of light soy sauce and a dash of white pepper. Heat some oil in a large frying pan and ladle the mixture into the pan (may need to do this in 2-3 batches depending on the size of your pan). Cook both sides until golden. The simplest thing ever.

Looks delicious! I like the simple fried eggs with french bean too, or basically fried eggs with anything.

Indeed, I could eat eggs forever! I love that dish (and another similar one which is fried eggs with sliced mushrooms). It's what my mum used to cook for us very often when we were children so it has the taste of home :)
