Cantonese Tomato Egg

Happy Wednesday!

I hope the week is going swell! I've been doing too much dilly dallying the past week, but that's definitely stopping now since summer school has started. A sad sad thing because my vacation is over-ish. But also, a joyous thing because now I have a set schedule to follow...and I won't procrastinate my life away! :) I like schedules because they keep me motivated and on track with my goals. Sorry for the slow posting all of a sudden! I've been busy getting accustomed to school again and volunteering with a wonderful dietitian.

Without further delay, today's recipe was taught to me by my mom and grandma. This is one of my favorite childhood dishes. I love how the sugar, tomato, and egg just mingle so well in this simple, easy-to-make dish. Tomatoes are delicious and packed full with vitamins like A and C. It's also low in calories and high in antioxidants. The egg is great for creating texture and The sugar is important for decreasing the acidic flavor of the tomato. If you like ketchup and eggs, you'll love this recipe! Some of my other favorite dishes are bean sprout omelets, century egg omelets, pork bone soup, century egg jook with Chinese doughnuts, and more! I'm slowly learning how to make them all from my mom and grandma and when I do, I'll be glad to share them all with you guys here! :) 

Cantonese Tomato Egg

Tomato egg-y goooooodness. I used two eggs here!

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

1 tbsp oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 medium tomatoes, quartered
~4 inch brown sugar block (or 1/3 cup unpacked brown sugar)
1/8 tsp salt
1-2 eggs, beaten*

1.) Add oil to cooking pan. When oil is hot, add garlic and fry until garlic browns.
2.) Add tomatoes, sugar, and salt. Cook until tomatoes resemble some kind of very chunky, thick sauce. (~10 minutes)
3.) Stir in beaten egg(s) until it is cooked. Turn off heat & serve!

Serve with whole grain rice and other dishes. (~ 4 people).

The dish is complete! Woohoo! Go you for making this delicious and simple recipe for the whole family to enjoy! :D
