A fast meal of eggs scrambled with tomatoes, and then seasoned with some salt, sugar, and soy sauce. This was the very first recipe I cooked, with a little help from my parents...I think I was about 5 or 6 at the time. Eat as it is, or serve over rice.

I've noticed several people confused about the sugar...it's not for the eggs but the tomatoes. This is a traditional Chinese dish. I am not Chinese but I've had it in many places in China and learned to make this from a Chinese girl. They even substitute ketchup for tomatoes sometimes. Read More

My family always put sugar in eggs so I liked that although the soy sauce was a bit strange in this dish. I probably would have preferred to leave that out and just add mozarella cheese to the egg/tomato mix instead. Read More

Delicious! I served the dish with rice. The only thing I changed was adding 2 more eggs. I had scaled the recipe up to 4 servings and 4 tomatoes chopped just seemed like too much. With the 6 eggs it was perfect. I suppose the amount of tomatoes depends on the size of the tomato you are using as well as personal preference. This is just like a dish my mother used to make all the time when I was growing up. My husband was surprised to learn this is a common chinese dish and I was surprised he liked it! Read More
