Total time: 8 minutes | Serves 2
Note: From Vicki Fan. Garlic chives are available at Asian markets.
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped garlic chives (nira), cut in 1-inch pieces

Step 1Break the eggs into a bowl, add salt and pepper and stir the eggs with a pair of chopsticks. You can beat them fully, or stir them so that there are still discernible whites.

Step 2Heat the wok over medium-high heat and add the oil, swirling to coat the pan. Heat until you see a wisp of smoke, then add chives, stirring.

Step 3Pour in the eggs and stir around until soft scrambled, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
