Steamed Egg

A lot of time, many of my recipes are halved or used very little egg. And I’m left with all this egg! I couldn’t possibly throw it away! So I normally save the egg to make steamed egg. I find it’s the poor people food because it’s mostly water.

My mom makes this all the time when she didn’t know what to make.


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • several pinches of salt (some people put a crap load but I like only a hint of salt)

Additional ingredients:
half a stalk of scallion
baby carrots (I always have baby carrots with me)

Steamed Egg

You can steam it on the stove in bake safe bowl over simmering water for 15 minutes or cover and put in microwave for 1.5 minutes high.
