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.

Flip omelette and cook for a few more seconds.

Serve hot, scattered with toppings and drizzled with oyster or sweet soy sauce.

Good idea: Alternatively, fry eggs unscrambled until whites are crispy and yolks are still soft and runny.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
