Steamed Egg--Another Lazy Dish

Well, another busy week, so I will continue to share easy recipes for busy people :) I promise that I will
post something more elaborate when I finish my finals :)

Steamed eggs are probably one of the simplest dishes I make from time to time, especially when I am busy because I can do the preparation in 15 minutes, then I can put it in the steamer and walk away and do what I need to do. When I come back 15 minutes, they are ready to go.

Serving 2

1/4 cup Dried Squid--soak for at least 15 minutes then cut into small pieces
2 eggs--beat well until you can see small bubbles on the surface
2 green onions--chopped finely
1 teaspoon chicken powder
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup of water--or use the water from soaking the dried squid

Mix everything together, and put into a big bowl. Cover with foil.

Heat a pot of water, bring it to a boil.

Put the mixture into a serving bowl, and steam it for 15 minutes.

You are ready to serve!

NOTE: 1)You may also separate the mixture into a small bowl, so you can serve one bowl of steamed egg for one person.
2) You may add different ingredients to the steamed egg, like dried mushroom, fresh seafood (you should boil it first then cut it small).
3) If you do not have anything else to serve, this dish alone will be enough for one person :)

Excellent!!! I'll try this tonight!!! I'll use mushrooms instead of squid though. I was going to make an omelette, but this sounds so good, I just gotta try it. Thanks, I'll let you know how it turned out! by the way: I was thinking about taking some pics of the stuff I'm cooking to upload them here, but I don't know where/how to do that... Do you/does anyone know? Thanks in advance!

@olli, if you are talking about upload them in my recipes, just go to my recipe, and click on upload a pic, then you can do it there...otherwise you can go to your own profile, and upload them to your own photo album...I will put this recipe in my box, so you can find it should you take a picture :)

This helps a lot! Thank you! After reading it I'm wondering why I couldn't figure that out myself!!! :)

I made this today for lunch, omitting the squid and adding a bit of imitation crab. So easy and tastes so good! Thank you.

@BigShotsMom, could you leave a review on my recipe,please! thank you!! To do so: click on my profile then go to my recipe box...I am glad you like it...I was so afraid that this is too Asian for some people

Hi Tao, This sounds great - I'm going to go to the Asian market this weekend to get the dried squid....I love squid when I've tried it at restaurants, but have never tried it dried. Sometime if you're trying to think of a recipe to post I would love a simple congee recipe if you have one. Thanks for all of your hard work.

@Shadow, were you the one who asked about congee recipe before? I am sorry, I have been so busy and put these request behind. I will update one soon :)Please remind me again, if I forget

I really liked it!!! I failed to take a photo though, because I ran outta batteries.... I'll definitely make this again in a few days and take a photo then. I have a dental OP ahead and this is perfect for the day after! :) Fast, tasty, "soft". I'll also post a review. Great stuff as always - thanks!

About Me
A simple guy in Seattle who is a Registered Nurse. I LOVE to cook and explore the balance between creative Asian cooking and authentic flavor with limited ingredients. I will update a new dish every week. Recipes are due by midnight every Sunday. Recipes might be updated earlier than Sunday. I will also post tips on Asian cooking periodically...
My favorite things to cook
hmmm, what a tough question to answer! I should say I am always willing to try new recipes. If I am asked about what I cook all the time, that would be Szechuan (Sichuan) food.If I am asked about a specific type of ingredient, that would be tofu and vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stir fry, I believe. I miss all the good food my mom used to cook for the whole family. We usually have one vegetable dish, a meat dish and a soup. Nothing is better than mother's food. I am trying very hard to make my food taste like my mom's.
My cooking triumphs
Chinese homemade stuffed Tofu
My cooking tragedies
Cooking takes time. Cooking with the love that you want to share with people that you cook for is the key of making a good dish!
