Simple, flavorful and delicious for any meal of the day, these Chinese tomato eggs are a must-learn.

Dig into Chinese comfort food with Hsiao-Ching Chou’s new collection of easy-to-make classics. If you’ve never had Chinese tomato eggs stir-fried with soy sauce and served with rice, you’re in for a treat. 

The brilliance of eggs is undeniable. Out of all the ways to prepare eggs, scrambled is the least exciting to me — probably because they’re often overcooked. The exception is tomato eggs. While I was growing up, I remember telling my friends about tomato eggs and getting blank looks in return. It didn’t occur to me that having eggs stir-fried with tomatoes and soy sauce wasn’t common. Summer tomatoes, of course, make this dish a simple stunner. Even with muted winter tomatoes, this dish is still a winner.
