If you buy Egg Foo Young from a Chinese restaurant, there’s a good chance that it will be delicious but quite heavy tasting and full of things that aren’t so great for you. This Egg Foo Young dish is different in that it is a recipe based out of South East Asia rather than China, and has a healthier ingredient list and overall lighter taste. I crave Chinese Egg Foo Young in the winter time, but I crave this lighter Egg Foo Young all year round! To me it tastes better, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. The sauce adds some sweetness to the dish, if watching your sugar intake you may want to use a smaller portion of sauce. My whole family loves this dish, and it’s an easy way for me to get them to eat proteins and vegetables.
