Thai Steamed Eggs

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Random Rachel

Simple steamed eggs with fresh coriander and tomatoes. Steaming the eggs gives them a light, airy texture that is almost custard like. I used garden fresh tomatoes, which released their juices into the eggs, so canned would probably work better. This would also be good with ham or bacon and cheese instead of the tomatoes, although it wouldn't be a Thai recipe anymore :) The original recipe called for 2 cups of broth, but I reduced it to 1 cup since it didn't set fully with 2 cups. from for ZWT9

This is a different and tasty way to serve eggs! Mine did set up but like another reviewer I had about a tablespoon of broth at the bottom of the dish that the cooked egg was floating in - almost like a poached scrambled egg. It had good flavor and I think chopped bell pepper or mushrooms would work in this as well. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers
