Steamed Eggs (ไข่ตุ๋น)

This is so good (and easy) when you need soft food like I did last week – post dental surgery.

You will need:
3 eggs
300 mil chicken stock
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons chopped spring onion
White Pepper
Fried Garlic in oil (optional)

Beat eggs in a bowl with fork, add stock and soy sauce. Pass the mixture through sieve into a jug and divided into 4 ramekins. Cover the ramekins loosely with foil and steam on medium heat for 15-20 minutes (stick a skewer in the egg to test – if it comes out clean, it’s cooked). Sprinkle with chopped spring onion, garlic and a dash of pepper. My dad would have added cooked pork mince and sprinkled with crispy fried dried prawns – but it would have been over the top and too difficult to eat for me.

Edit: You can also use electric steamer - about 12 minutes.
