Mushroom Rice Pilaf and Tuna Egg Foo Young


Okay, this is not exactly a traditional Chinese dish. However it is my latest creation of a simple meal. Without a lot of fuzz in the kitchen and fancy ingredients, an impressive healthy dinner is ready in no time. I normally like to pan fry a sunny side up egg, put it on top of the rice pilaf and then drizzle with a little bit of soy sauce. How pretty is that? Make the tuna patties if you have time, it is really tasty. You can also make a dipping sauce or simple gravy for the patties, either way is good. It is a perfect meatless dinner.

One thought on “Mushroom Rice Pilaf and Tuna Egg Foo Young

  1. Incredibly good dish. I was surprised at how good the mushrooms tasted–and I usually don’t like mushrooms. This version of egg foo young is just moist enough and tasty enough to blend perfectly with the rice and mushrooms. Love it!
