Bean Sprout Stir Fry with Fluffy Tofu Omelet

Bean Sprout Stir Fry with Fluffy Tofu OmeletCooking Time: 20 minutes

This fluffy tofu omelet is complemented by the crispy texture of bean sprouts stir fried with greens. This dish goes well with freshly cooked rice and fits well in a bento lunch box, too.

Eco Energy Point

The vegetables are steam-boiled in a very small amount of water. Placing a lid on the pan can save energy, too.
You can use the same frying pan for the whole process from pre-cooking the vegetables to making sauce.

Ingredients (for 4)

200 grams of medium-hard tofu
200 grams of bean sprouts
50 grams of green leafy vegetables (turnip leaves, etc)
3 eggs

2 teaspoons of starch
2 teaspoons of water
1/2 teaspoon of granular bouillon (mixed with small amount of water)
1/2 teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons of cooking oil

1/2 tablespoon of grated garlic
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of sugar

1 tablespoon of lemon juice


  1. Drain tofu well.
  2. (Vegetables) Wash, drain and remove root ends from sprouts. Cut leafy greens into about 3cm lengths. In a frying pan, bring to a boil about a tablespoon of water and steam-cook vegetables for 3 minutes.
  3. (Omelet) Beat 3 eggs and add A (except for oil) then mix in roughly broken drained tofu. Warm the frying pan, add cooking oil, add the tofu-egg mixture cook it until both sides are light brown, and remove.
  4. (Sauce) Put B into the frying pan, cook it a while, and then add lemon juice.
  5. Cut and serve the omelet garnished with the stir-fry and sauce.
