Fried Egg with Long Bean

Simple and just fried…

When your mind is some time too lazy to think of what to cook… this dish is definitely suitable when we are lazy… hahaha :)
* Just diced the long beans and stir an egg with some Soya sauce.

This is the Organic Long Beans I bought from Tesco, and it was actually placed at the Organic Rack. And I found the prices between Organic and Non Organic are just about few 10 cents difference.

1. 4 cloves Garlic (grated)
2. 5 pcs Long Beans (diced)
3. 1 Egg (stir well)

1. Rinse Long Bean and diced.
2. Heat up 2 tbsps of oil, add sufficient salt, and fry Minced Garlic and Long Bean until fragrant.
3. Pour in egg evenly on the Long Bean.
4. Fry over high heat for 2 min.
When I was home last year, I remember my mom’s “mini-farm” planted some long beans too… and I remember that was an evening and mom asking to choose some matured long bean and asked me to pick down some for dinner.

Living in a big city like where I stay now… we don’t have a big house for gardening, don’t even have a backyard to plant anything like what my mom has. That is why I always appreciate when I have a chance to go home, and the next thing I will do is bring my camera and take down photos.

Here are some of my mom’s results from her backyard, and we even found some snails crawling at the vegetables, lady-birds hiding at the Bird Eye Chili Trees, and some time we even can see frogs hiding underneath the Pandan Leaves.

My mom used to cook this dish, but she uses more eggs and less long beans.
