When I have no time to cook up a storm, my easy solution to an additional dish is always fried eggs; like a sunny side up seasoned with some light soy sauce and pepper.
Personally, I find that long beans are quite tasteless. So, you must cook them with sambal or a strong sauce to give them an oomph!! However, today I decided to use some long beans to cook in an omelette. In the past, this dish was a common sight in most homes, hence it gives a homely and comforting feel.
If you don’t have a lot of time to prep and cook, try this simple and easy dish. The dish can be ready in 15 minutes!! And you will get your protein from the eggs and fibre from the long beans.
