Bean Sprout Omelette


I bought a huge pile of bean sprouts for "Chicken and Bean Sprout Soup". The balance remained fresh for 2 days. Thereafter as you know, its better to use up the sprouts before they loose the crunchy texture. So I made these mini omelettes with the sprouts, salad leaves, onion and red chillies. A side dish or else stuff them between toasted bread slices as sandwiches. 


Ingredients
1 cup bean sprouts - break the tail part, rinsed and drained.
1 cup salad leaves - shredded
3 eggs
1 red (abt 100g) onion - sliced thinly
2 red chillies - sliced thinly
Pepper and salt for taste
Oil as needed

Method
Combine and mix all ingredients (except oil) in a bowl.
Heat oil on a flat flying pan. 
Scoop a bit of the egg mixture and pour into the pan. 
Fry while flattening it, to spread evenly to cook on both sides.
Remove from pan.
Repeat the same process with the balance of the egg mixture.

  3. My husband and I love mung bean sprout.I always sprouted at home. But from few months the mung beans are not good enough to be sprouted.
    Eggs are one of my comfort food. When I have nothing in my mind to make. I go for your kind of egg omelettes. Eggs anytime of the day. Its lovely that you added the store bought sproutsa nd made it more delicious.

  6. My mother used to always make me an omelet like this but with various things in it. I loved it and ate it with rice and soy sauce. This sounds fantastic.
