Fried omelette with Long Beans     煎  蛋  炒 長 豆

Mum made this dish a lot as supermarkets sell these green beans so cheaply and you get quite a lot in one packet. This dish is the same as the omelette and Chinese chives dish but instead of the peppery chives flavour this is a more satisfying mouth full and milder in taste flavour. Both good but just depends what you prefer.  Both mum and Grandma made this dish a lot so it’s only fair that I cook it a lot too.
