Long Beans Omelette



This omelette must be in any home cook's repertoire. This recipe is one which needs the minimum of ingredients - the 2 main ingredients are eggs and long beans. The amount of eggs and long beans need no measurements but obviously eggs have to be more than long beans, otherwise it will not be an omelette but scrambled instead.




Ingredients:
4 eggs - lightly beaten
1 cup long beans - cut into 1/4 inch lengths.
salt and pepper
4 tbsp oil


Method:
Beat eggs with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in pan and when oil is hot, add in the long beans and saute until long beans turn bright green.
Add in eggs and fry until the bottom is brown, then flip omelette and brown the other side.
Dish up and server hot.

Serves

my Mom cooks the long beans in this version cos otherwise my brother would not have taken even a bite of the long beans.
tactical method of Mom's cooking i must admit.

My mom use to put frozen peas in it and always frozen vegetables for quick dishes when needed. I like it with chop up ham and pea and carrot it great for the kids.

oh yea...one of my fave when I was a kid!! Sometimes mum will put in some shrimps too, ohhh, those were lovely.
But this, the plain one is also my fave:D

This looks delicious! Would be great too with some minced pork and fish sauce instead of salt : )
