A Chinese fiesta in your mouth

by Ya Zhou, Online Connections Editor & Online Copy Editor
For closet food lovers who are scared of heat and anything that conducts it, never fear! This traditional Chinese dish is easy to make and satisfying to even the pickiest palate. With ingredients you can count on your fingers, this dish is versatile and suitable for any meal or any appetite.

Eggs and tomatoes

Prep time is about 5 minutes. Makes about 4-6 servings.


- 1 frying pan
- 1 standard kitchen knife
- 1 cutting board
- 1 spatula


- 4 eggs
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 stick of scallions
- 2 pinches of salt
- 2 pinches of sugar
- 3 tablespoons of oil


Note: each step will use highest heat setting.

1. Scramble the eggs in the pan until they are just done. Remove eggs from the pan.

2. Slice the tomatoes into chunks. Add the oil to the pan, and immediately add in the tomatoes until they are well done; stir regularly. This step should take no longer than five minutes under an open flame. Add in the pinches of salt and sugar.

3. Add the scrambled eggs to the cooked tomatoes and stir briefly before turning off heat.

4. Cut the scallions into large chunks and add to the pan. You can turn on the heat briefly to soak the scallions in the tomatoes and eggs.

5. Remove pan from heat and pour into a large dish.

6. Enjoy!

    That is by far the most disturbing title I've ever seen on Silver Chips.

    That and I have yet to meet anyone who is a "Closet Food Lover". Please be more creative than that.

    Isn't this just scrambled eggs?

    I am a 17 year old Jr. at Tioga High school(Tioga,Louisiana), and our Indian Ink Newspaper Editor. As of now we only produce our newspaper on broadsheets. I would like for us to set up an online newspaper. Looking at the SilverChips newspaper was great. I think that this is one of the best I've seen so far.
