Heat a generous glug of oil in a wok until very hot. Add ginger and garlic and fry for 10 seconds.

Tip in eggs and beans and lightly stir-fry with chopsticks until beginning to set.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
