This is what happens when I have a craving for something but want it to be healthier – I really wanted Egg Foo Young.  I found a recipe from Rasa Malaysia that is more authentic than anything we get in Chinese restaurants: Egg Foo Young.  I changed a few of the ingredients but basically followed her directions for the seasoning in the eggs.

Plated on Asian short-grain rice with just a little soy sauce. Definitely satisfied my craving and a do-again. The seasoning in the eggs was perfect. Would also be good with chicken or pork.
