Egg Foo Yung

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Cher Jewhurst

From the Ultimate Vegetarian Cookbook, this is one of our favorite light meals for those nights when we're just sick of eating so much meat. This one-dish recipe cooks up quick and easy and tastes great. Rice is better if made a day ahead but it works if you make it just before preparation too. It just tends to be a bit more sticky but it still tastes wonderful.

This was wonderful for a light Sunday night supper! We made just as directed with the exception of only using 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil. I only had chili sesame oil, so didn't want it too hot but it was just right! Thanks for sharing this keeper which we have on often!
