Here’s a great tasty tomato and egg based dish. In this version in the video I also added mushrooms as we had some in the house and Mark likes them a lot. As you might guess, the dish is flexible and you can probably add in a good range of other ingredients as long as their flavours complement the tomato or egg main tastes.


This tomato flavoured scrambled egg 蕃茄炒蛋 stir fry is very popular in Taiwan home cooking and is often one of many dishes presented at dinner time at home. The key flavour comes of course from the tomatoes. It is always served and mixed with boiled rice on your plate.
