Eggs Zucchini



Another of my newly created eggs dish with zucchini. I never cooked this dish before because this version of the eggs were more soggy and soft. But I wanted to try something different again. I think I really converted my hubby from not eating zucchini to eat zucchini because he never liked it before. Now I used it to stir-fry and even in cooking curry and he ate it all. This simple dish turned out to be surprisingly delicious. I will sure to cook it again.

Ingredients:

1 zucchini, thinly sliced like above picture
2 Tbsp. of Chinese dried shrimps, soaked until soften, drained

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

3 eggs, beaten and seasoned with salt

1 tsp. chicken stock granules

Salt to taste

Canola oil for cooking


Method:

1. In a wok, heat up the oil. When heated, add in the dried shrimps and garlic. Stir-fry until fragrant, add in the zucchini. Stir-fry until the zucchini is cooked, add in beaten eggs.

2. Stir until eggs are cooked and season with salt and chicken granules. Dish out and serve.

Hi indonesia-eats, I'm good, same old, thanks for asking. Been busy watching drama and hardly visit your blog too. :P

Really Christy? Why? I haven't heard of anything bad about zucchini. But it's okaylah, it's not like we eat it every day. Don't worry about it.

Noobcook, yeah you should. This is not in my menu before but now I love to buy zucchini. :)

My husband also not a fan of zucchini. He said its too soft so I will normally buy one or two for myself. I never cook zucchini with eggs...interesting.

You're welcome, blur mommy.

It is family first. I like this dish.

Beachlover, will go take a look at your hibachi zucchini. ;)

Thanks Tigerfish.

Gert, do you know why the zucchini in the Asian market is so much bigger than the one in the angmoh market? Like double/triple the size, so normally I only buy one.

That's great Lia. :)

Thanks Retno. Hope you like it too.
