10 Extraordinary Easy Egg-Tastic Recipes

10 Extraordinary Easy Egg-Tastic Recipes

Make it poached, scrambled, fried, or soft-boiled, whether in dishes and desserts- here's 10 ways to love the extraordinary egg

How many ways to love the egg? We have 10. By far one of the most versatile ingredients in the world, eggs are must-haves in your kitchen. Not only does it stand on its own (poached, scrambled, fried, or soft-boiled) but it plays an important role in countless dishes and desserts in most cuisines. They create structure and stability, help to thicken and emulsify, add moisture and even act as a glue while, of course, adding its delicious flavour and nutrients. Here is our ode to the extraordinary egg. 

1. Chinese Scrambled Egg with Tomato

Here’s a lovely and fresh twist to an old favourite, scrambled eggs! We’ve spiced it up with some chili sauce and gave it natural sweetness with the addition of bright red tomatoes, this Chinese Scrambled Eggs with Tomato is a comforting and easy-to-make dish for any dinner table!

2. Chinese Spinach Soup

Eggs are truly the highlight of this dish. We use a combination of salted eggs, century egg, and for the lack of a better term, normal egg, to create this incredibly tasty vegetable soup. It is a quick and healthy fix that uses the simplest of ingredients - the Chinese spinach, dried ikan bilis (dried anchovies), and eggs, this soup takes about 30 minutes to make from start to finish. For added sweetness, throw in a handful of wolfberries! Serve hot with rice for a complete meal.

3. Hong Kong Style Egg Tart

A delicate pastry that showcases the egg to perfection - the Hong Kong Style Egg Tart. It might look difficult to recreate the perfect egg tart but this really is the perfect no-fuss recipe of how to make a delicious and smooth Portuguese egg tart. Egg tarts are not an easy feat as we faced questions of how long can they last or how do we reheat egg tarts without it becoming a solid custard. Don’t worry, we have the right steps and help you need- and forget about the calories, because our egg tart recipes are worth every single calorie.

4. Soy-Sauce Broth Eggs

If you enjoy hard-boiled eggs, you are going to be a big fan of this. Aptly named the "Drug Egg", Mayak Gyeran makes you come back for more and it is really easy to prepare. The soy sauce mixture - a delicate balance of soy sauce, water, sugar, minced garlic and sesame seeds is the perfect complement to it. Easy, right? Serve it over rice for a hearty meal or eat it on its own as a snack!

5. Oyster Omelette

Here’s a dish that might sound peculiar to some, but trust us – it is magical and part of the magic is, naturally, thanks to the egg. A hawker favourite in Singapore and Malaysia, you can now make it at home!  Not only can you control the proportions of the ingredients, you can also adjust the seasoning to your preferences - be it chili, fish sauce, and even the number of oysters. Be as lavish as you want, and there you have it, your perfect Oyster Omelette!

6. Salted Egg Butter Prawn Pasta

We cannot say this enough –  the salted egg from Asia should be put on the mantle and praised. If you have yet to try it, we recommend our Salted Egg Butter Prawn Pasta. Let's be honest, not all fusion dishes work. Most go overboard, with flavors that clash rather than complement, but ours go there in all the right ways, creating the perfect fusion of East meets West. Silky, buttery pasta with salted egg flavors, with a sweet garlic and curry undertones. Awarning, regular pasta seems a lot more boring after you make this easy-to-prepare dish.

7. Seriously Intense Otah Omelette Sandwich

We’re levelling up the good ol’ egg sandwich with this recipe! The egg acts as a creamy, juicy pouch that cradles bits of savoury otah. You will also need a French loaf, sliced and a fresh handful of veggies to lighten the intensely spiced fish paste.

8. Silky Steamed Egg

Get your eggy fix at dinner with our Silky Steamed Egg! Served in a shallow bowl to share or in a small ramekin for each person, the Silky Steamed Egg is a popular dish that is eaten at home, and many Chinese restaurants across Asia. It is the most straightforward of recipes – simply mix water with beaten eggs, season and steam – but to get the smooth and soft texture right requires some attention to detail, such as getting the right egg water ratio!

9. Salted Egg Kale Chips

And because one simply cannot get enough of salted eggs, here is another recipe with it but one that is… slightly healthier! This Asian egg sensation is now paired with kale, and it doesn't disappoint. The superfood is baked in buttery goodness, curry leaves, the heat of chillies and the super side-kick -creamy umami-filled salted eggs. Need some sweetness? We used gavia instead, it's a sugar replacement and a rare sugar equivalent. But other sugar replacements work too. Be warned though, it's addictive and absolutely keto-friendly.

10. Tomato Egg Drop Soup

Here’s a dish where the egg is also featured as an artwork. Both sweet and sour, the Tomato Egg Drop Soup is a dish that will whet one’s appetite. Hailing from China, this dish is incredibly easy to prepare, with no special herbs or complex techniques other than swirling of the egg whites to create egg strands. A truly versatile dish, you can have it as an appetizer, a side dish or even a light meal.
