If you haven’t got much in the pantry, this easy steamed egg is certainly a dish you can try. Simple, light, and easy to make! And because the light soy sauce is added only after the dish is cooked, you can tailor how much or how little you’d like it to be.

Serves: 2
  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml stock
  • 1 bunch scallions (sliced)

  1. Beat the eggs and mix them together with the stock.

  6. Pour a little light soy sauce, the shallot oil and shallots over the steamed egg.

Tip: I usually make a batch of fried shallots in my microwave oven (a jam-jar full of them) at one go to save time and effort.

See, told you it was easy!
