Egg Cubes with Carrot and Wolfberries

My kids loves eggs so I'm always trying different ways to present it so it would be more interesting. You know kids get bored easily, even they like a certain food, if I cook the same way too often, I'll see the leftovers getting more.

My daughter kept pinching the egg cubes before I add the sauce so it end up with just this little lot only.

  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 Carrot, sliced
  • 20 Wolfberries, soaked to soften
  • 50ml Water
  • 70ml Stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sesame Seed Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Cornflour Mixture (thickener)
How to do it:
  1. Beat eggs with water and a pinch of salt.
  2. Oil the dish to prevent the eggs from sticking.
  3. Pour the egg mixture in the dish.
  4. Cover the dish with cling wrap.
  5. Steam till the egg is set.
  6. Remove the egg and cut into cubes.
  7. Set aside.
  8. While streaming, drain the water from the wolfberries and set aside.
  9. Heat stock in wok.
  10. Add in carrot and wolfberries.
  11. Add sesame seed oil and salt to taste.
  12. Thicken the sauce with cornflour mixture.
  13. Pour over the egg and serve.
  • Use stock instead of water if you want more flavourful egg cubes.
  • Steam your carrot before hand if you prefer a softer bite.

  1. Hi Elaine, tks for the recipe, trying out today. Twins love eggs!

  2. This is a really great way. all your posts listed here, will be my future cooking for my future kids. hee hee.

  3. Joanne,
    Hope the boys like it.

    Sentosa Girl,
    Haha ... dont have to wait mah. Can start cooking now for your parents mah. ;) hehehe ....

  4. nice dish....
    but could cling wrap be used to line the dish and to cover it?
    i meant it's plastic.....ewwww, wouldn't it melt?
    also, can i steam 3eggs with 50ml full cream milk instead of water?
    please kindly advise, thank you.

  5. Aaron,
    It wont melt cos you are not cooking it directly. You are steaming plus when you steam, the dish doesnt touches the water so no directly heat. No plastic smell.

    You can used milk but then it will be more towards a sweet dish; you know like the custard for egg tart (except not as sweet a egg tart)? Then you may have to change the sauce slightly. :)
