Apparently, some of ya'll aren't very adventurous when it comes to the Asian buffet lines. I know because as I was brainstorming ideas for this post, I mentioned egg foo yung as a possibility. Not only had my wife never tried this dish despite it being a staple of every Chinese menu I've ever seen, but she'd also never even heard of it.

What is egg foo yung?

Basically, egg foo yung is a Cantonese omelet dish that contains traditional Chinese and Indonesian vegetables that is fried and served with a broth-based gravy. It can contain meat such as shrimp, pork or chicken but for this recipe, we decided to keep it with just vegetables. It's quick and easy and can be made in just 20 minutes or less. That's less time than it takes to have Chinese delivered and more inspired than just throwing some seasonings on meat and calling it a meal.

To make this dish even easier, we used Asian Style Fried Rice as our side dish. It makes for an ideal pairing with just about any Asian dish. The new lines of Ling Ling Fried Rice, which is already premade with all the vegetables and seasonings and ready to heat, makes for the perfect addition to your meal that is simple to make and inspired by authentic Asian inspired recipes from Japan, China, Korea, and Thailand.

The Chinese-Style Vegetable makes for a perfect side or try the Yakitori Chicken, Yakiniku Beef, Thai-Style Chicken or Bibimbap Beef as an easy main course. Each grain of rice is infused during the cooking process with their signature sauces that gives incredible flavor to every bite. We found Ling Ling in the frozen foods section of our local grocery store.
