Stir-fried pumpkin with egg
To prepare 2-3 portions of this dish you need:
- 500g pumpkin, cut into bite-size pieces*
- 150g minced pork (optional)
- 3 eggs
- 2 TSP minced garlic
- 1 TSP soy sauce
- 2 TSP oyster sauce
- 1 TSP sugar
- 2 TSP vegetable oil
- 1 cup of water
* I think you can prepare this dish also with other kinds of vegetables that have a similar consistency like pumpkin, e.g. eggplants.
Heat your pan or wok and put in the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the minced garlic and fry until fragrant. Then put in the minced pork, add soy sauce, oyster sauce and sugar. Keep on stir-frying, then add in the pumpkin. (If you leave out the meat, then go right ahead and add the pumpkin after the garlic is fragrant). Add a cup of water and let everything simmer for 2-3 minutes. Finally, add the eggs and stir-fry until the dish is well-cooked. You’re ready to serve!
