French beans with egg (四季豆炒咸蛋) is a comfort food dish which I grew up eating, and basically the stir-fried version of my mum’s long beans omelette recipe. It is really simple to cook with only 3 main ingredients (french beans, egg and garlic), and especially enjoyable with a bowl of porridge.

It is simple home-cooked dishes like this which I never get tired of eating all these years. I always try to keep some french beans in the fridge because I know I can whip up this healthy dish quickly (in about 15 minutes) and effortlessly, perfect for eating light or/and busy nights.

  1. Hey Wiffy,

    I love simple recipes and I guess nothing beats what mum cooks.

  2. My kids like it with long bean. I cook just like how you do it. Yummy! Oh, I use the same olive oil too! :)

  3. Woooo…I like this. A family dish. But what are baby fine beans? I usually use long beans or french beans and cut them to small pieces.

  4. Love your illustrated guide to cooking – so easy to understand!

  5. I cook this dish often too, with long beans. Baby fine beans has more crunch thou.

  6. tigerfish: they look similar looking to french beans and I wonder if they are the same too

    I innovated a little with smashed fried salted fish (I reduced amount of soya sauce), it turn out great as well. If you are salted fish lover, you might want to give a shot. Thanks again for all your wonderful, easy to understand receipes.
