INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTES

Ingredient quantities please refer to the recipes card (Click here)!

  • Eggs – The eggs in this recipe provide a fluffy and protein-rich element. They are lightly beaten and cooked until scrambled. There aren’t any direct substitutes for eggs in this dish.
  • White pepper powder – White pepper powder adds a subtle heat and mild peppery flavor to the dish. If you don’t have white pepper powder, you can substitute it with black pepper powder, although the flavor will be slightly different.
  • Garlic cloves – Garlic adds a distinct aromatic flavor to the dish. If you don’t have fresh garlic cloves, you can use garlic powder as a substitute. Substitute 1 clove of fresh garlic with approximately 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • Onion – Onions provide a savory and slightly sweet flavor to the stir-fry. If you don’t have onions, you can use shallots or leeks as a substitute. They will provide a similar flavor profile.
  • Oil – Oil is used for stir-frying the ingredients. You can use vegetable oil, canola oil, or any other neutral-flavored oil suitable for high-heat cooking.
  • Tomatoes – Ripe tomatoes are the star ingredient of this dish, providing a sweet and tangy flavor. There aren’t any direct substitutes for tomatoes in this recipe. However, if you prefer a less acidic flavor, you can use cherry tomatoes or vine-ripened tomatoes instead.
  • Tomato sauce – Tomato sauce adds richness and depth of flavor to the dish. If you don’t have tomato sauce, you can substitute it with tomato paste diluted with a small amount of water. Adjust the quantity based on the desired intensity of tomato flavor.
  • Sugar – Sugar helps balance the acidity of the tomatoes and enhances their natural sweetness. You can use white granulated sugar or substitute with honey or maple syrup for a different flavor profile.
  • Salt – Salt enhances the overall taste and helps bring out the flavors of the dish. You can adjust the amount of salt to your preference or use a substitute such as soy sauce or tamari for a slightly different flavor.
  • Water – Water is added to create a sauce-like consistency and help cook the tomatoes. You can substitute water with vegetable broth for added flavor. If your tomatoes are very ripe, you can omit the addition of water in the recipe. The high moisture content in ripe tomatoes will naturally release enough liquid during cooking, eliminating the need for additional water.
  • Spring onion – Spring onion is used as a garnish to add a fresh and onion-like flavor to the dish. If you don’t have spring onions, you can use chopped chives or scallions as a substitute.

Remember, while substitutes can alter the taste and texture of the dish, they can still result in a delicious stir-fried tomato with egg. Feel free to experiment and adjust the ingredients according to your preferences and dietary needs.

RECIPES TIPS

  • Use ripe tomatoes: Opt for ripe tomatoes as they are sweeter and have more flavor. They will enhance the overall taste of the dish. If your tomatoes are very ripe, you can omit the addition of water in the recipe. The high moisture content in ripe tomatoes will naturally release enough liquid during cooking, eliminating the need for additional water.
  • Control the cooking time: Be mindful not to overcook the tomatoes. Stir-fry them until they soften and release their juices, but still maintain some texture. This will ensure a balance between tender tomatoes and a vibrant taste.
  • Adjust sweetness and acidity: Taste the dish as you go and adjust the amount of sugar and tomato sauce accordingly. If the tomatoes are naturally sweet, you may need less sugar. Similarly, if the dish turns out too tangy, add a bit more sugar to balance the acidity.
  • Customize seasonings: Feel free to experiment with additional seasonings according to your preference. You can add a dash of soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, or even a sprinkle of dried herbs like oregano or basil to enhance the flavor.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs: Just before serving, sprinkle chopped spring onions or other fresh herbs like cilantro or parsley over the dish. This adds a pop of freshness and adds visual appeal.
  • Serve with accompaniments: Stir-Fried Tomato with Egg is delicious on its own, but you can serve it with steamed rice, crusty bread, or even noodles for a more substantial meal. The combination of the juicy tomatoes, fluffy eggs, and starch provides a satisfying balance.
  • Customize the texture: If you prefer a smoother texture, you can use a fork or spatula to break the scrambled eggs into smaller pieces while stir-frying. Alternatively, leave the eggs in larger chunks for a heartier texture.
  • Double the recipe: If you’re serving a larger group or want leftovers for future meals, double the recipe accordingly. Just ensure you have a spacious pan or wok to accommodate the increased quantity of ingredients.
  • Add protein or vegetables: To make the dish more substantial or add variety, you can include additional ingredients such as cooked chicken, shrimp, or diced vegetables like bell peppers or mushrooms. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  • Experiment with spice: If you prefer a bit of heat, you can add a small amount of chili flakes, diced chili peppers, or a drizzle of hot sauce to the dish.
