Frittatas are traditionally an Italian dish, but the Chinese have a similar dish, often using garlic chives. You can find them at the Chinese grocery store, and if you can get the seeds, they grow like grass. We have five chive plants out in the backyard, and we just trim them whenever we need them, and they grow back within days. This is a super easy, fast, cheap vegetarian meal that you can serve with some rice and a vegetable.
- 5 eggs
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 1/2 cups Chinese garlic chives, chopped
- 1 small tomato, sliced
- 1 scallion, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Pinch of white pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon shaoxing wine
- 2 teaspoons duo jiao chili peppers (optional)
- 1 tablespoon oil
Preheat the oven to broil.
Whisk together all the ingredients except the oil in a large bowl.
Heat oil in a cast iron pan or other oven-proof non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Pour in the egg mixture and cook for about 5 minutes until the bottom is set and the top begins to set.
Transfer the pan to the oven and broil for about 3 minutes, until fully set.
Slice and serve!
