Steamed Egg with Tofu

My daughter loves eggs. Eggs done any way. Hard boiled, soft boiled, scrambled, pouched, fried, braised, steamed, etc. except raw eggs. :P She just loves to eat eggs. The other food she likes very much is tofu. I combined the two to come up with another dish that she loves too. It's really easy to made too! Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs
  • a pinch of salt
  • 160ml Broth
  • 1 tube Egg Tofu, cut into pieces
  • 1 Dried Scallop
  • 1 teaspoon Cornflour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Oyster Sauce
How to do it:
  1. Soak the dried scallop in 5 tablespoon of hot water before hand.
  2. Beat egg lightly in a bowl
  3. Add broth and salt.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Sieve the egg mixture if you want a smoother result.
  6. Pour into a shallow flat dish.
  7. Place tofu in it
  8. Cover the bowl with cling wrap or aluminum foil.
  9. Heat a pot of water for steaming.
  10. When the water starts to boil, put in the dish.
  11. Remove when egg is set.
  12. While the egg is cooking, tear the scallop into strands.
  13. Return the dried scallop strands to the water.
  14. Add in oyster sauce and corn flour.
  15. Mix well.
  16. Bring the sauce to a boil while gently stirring it.
  17. Remove and pour over the steamed egg and tofu.
  18. Drizzle with sesame seed oil if you like.
  19. Serve.
  • Use a shallow dish to steam the egg, then you don't have to cut the tofu too thick and you will be able to see the tofu in the egg when it's done.
  • Use a flat dish so the tofu can be spread out.

    Eric, this is not a soup. It's like the Japanese Chawanmushi - Steam Egg. Except this doesn't use dashi stock. It's more oriental.
