This is a staple Chinese dish that takes 20 minutes to make! The tangy tomatoes and fluffy scrambled eggs with pinch of sugar is a flavorful dish delicious over some rice! I ate this all the time growing up so this brings me back to my childhood!
This recipe just requires a few ingredients. Eggs and tomatoes are the mains and the rest is just salt, pepper, pinch of sugar, oil, water and garlic powder. It’s really simple!
Every time I recreate a recipe from my childhood, I send a photo to my mom! She loves seeing the remakes! I love being to embrace my Chinese culture & sharing foods I grew up with!
