  5. Crack eggs; whisk together with additional egg whites. Add finely sliced vegetables, bean sprouts and pork.
  6. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a wok or large fry pan.  Pour in egg mixture and cook until eggs are set and lightly browned on bottom. Flip and cook until bottom side is lightly browned. Remove from heat.
  7. Divide into 4 portions, place on a plate and spoon egg fu yung sauce over the top. Sprinkle with scallions and enjoy.

Helpful hints

  • Egg Fu Yung is a Chinese omelet topped with a cornstarch thickened sauce. This version is much lower in sodium compared to a traditional recipe or restaurant dish.
  • Stir cornstarch mixture immediately before pouring into chicken broth.
  • Substitute chicken instead of pork if desired. Four ounces raw pork or chicken yields approximately 1 cup cooked. Adjust the amount if you need more or less protein.
