Tomato egg is my son’s favorite dish. Every week, I have to make tomato eggs for him to go with steamed rice plus other dishes I cook. He just loves eggs and tomatoes so much, the combination makes the dish extra appetizing and super delicious for him. The happiest moment being a mother—especially if your child is a picky eater—is when your child absolutely enjoys the food you make…I am no exception. Every time I make tomato eggs, he would gobble them up and he would tell me in Chinese “mmm, hao hao chi wo” (好好吃喔）, or “mmm, so yummy!” We just love the goofy way he says it whenever he eats the eggs, and his cute little voice as he expresses appreciation of the great tasting dish. We love his expression so much that we recorded a video, just so we can watch it later and show it to him when he is all grown up!
However, for Mr. Rasa Malaysia and I, we do get bored eating the same dish twice a week, so I decided to change it up a little bit by adding tofu, after I saw the recipe on my friend’s Taiwanese cookbook. This tomato and tofu eggs taste even better, with the addition of chicken broth and ketchup in the recipe. The tofu is such a great addition and we absolutely enjoyed it. Needless to say, my son loved it as usual.
Tomato and tofu egg is a really simple dish to make…it’s humble, homey, but every bit mouthwatering and delicious. It’s one of those dishes that epitomizes the greatness of home cooking. Nothing fancy, with everyday ingredients you can get at any regular stores, takes only 15-20 minutes to make, but all your family members will absolutely enjoy this perfect egg and tofu dish. Happy cooking!
