I love cooking like this—simple, feel-good meals. Take a basic protein, some water, a few key seasonings and make something (great) out of almost nothing. Here is a Taiwanese favorite from my wife’s family.

“Real” Chinese food, more often than not, is a far cry from the sugary, glazed, and fried take-out stuff that many westerners envision. Authentic Chinese cuisine tends toward simple and good nourishing recipes designed to feed a family, like this healthy stir fry made with nothing but fresh tomatoes, eggs and scallions.
This isn’t a take-out style recipe, loaded with sweet sauce…. it’s simple, nourishing… meant to feed a family on a regular basis, as it has been doing for my wife’s family as long as she can remember. Handed down from my mother-in-law, this is basic Chinese cooking at its best: protein, vegetables, and rice. Simple and good food.
