  • Tomato

    5 piece

  • Chicken egg

    2 piece

  • Ginger

    1 piece

  • Green onions

    1 handful

  • Tomatoes in own juice

    200 g

  • Soy sauce

    3 Tbsp

  • Vegetable oil

    2 Tbsp

  • Chili

    1 tsp

  • Black pepper


To prepare the products. For rich flavor need sweet ripe fleshy tomatoes, such as varieties of plum. If those are not available, you can also use pureed tomatoes in their own juice.
Tomatoes are cleaned from the skins. This notching them up criss-cross and lower for a few seconds in boiling water, then rinse with cold water - the skin will easily separate.
Peeled tomatoes cut into cubes. Root ginger a thumb-sized peel and cut into small strips. The amount of ginger can be adjusted according to your taste, the more it will be - even more spicy and warming soup will turn out.
Beat eggs in a bowl, add black pepper to taste and a tablespoon of soy sauce.
Good whisk with a fork like scrambled eggs.
In a saucepan with a thick bottom or a wok heat vegetable oil and pour in the egg mixture. Stir it to make egg flakes.
When the eggs are "grab", add the ginger and fry, stirring, about a minute.
Then add the tomatoes.
When the tomatoes start to let the juice, add the chilli flakes and pour about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce.
Add tomatoes with juice and boil all together for about 2 minutes. Optionally, you can dilute the soup to your desired consistency by adding hot boiled water or chicken broth and again boil. The broth will make the soup richer in taste, however this is entirely optional. In my opinion, he is so self-sufficient.
The ready hot soup is poured on plates, sprinkle with finely chopped green onions or cilantro. Optionally, you can add cubes of tofu. But, as I said, and without it the soup is good by itself. In Chinese cuisine, it is cooked just so, without any additives. Perhaps, the restaurant may add a little rice vodka. However, this is completely optional)
