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.
