5 medium to large eggs (I usually use organic for this recipe)
1 inch piece fresh ginger (organic)
½ tsp salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tbsp peanut oil

  1. In a large bowl, crack the eggs and scramble them and then set them aside.

  2. Peel the ginger using a knife or the back of a spoon. Then finely grate it using a grater. If you do not have a grater on hand then finely mince it and set it aside.

  3. Next start cooking by heating a wok on high.

  4. Once it is hot add the oil and swirl it around to coat the bottom.

  5. Then add the ginger and stir fry it for just 30 seconds or until fragrant.

  6. Next add the eggs cooking them just as you would cook regular scrambled eggs, but mixing in the ginger as it cooks. These take about 1 to 2 minutes to cook thoroughly.

  7. When you see the eggs start to firm up and “scramble,” sprinkle in the salt and pepper, stirring to distribute them evenly.

  8. Once they are cooked through remove them from the heat and serve them immediately. This makes a great breakfast served alone or even alongside some plain fried rice as well, enjoy.
