Postulant Cook’s Egg Recipe
Egg in Tomato and Onion Torta
1 1/2 tbsp Olive oil (or vegetable oil)
4 large eggs
1 large onion, cut into thin strips
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
Salt & Pepper
Beat the eggs in a bowl, season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Using a non-stick frying pan or well seasoned wok, heat up the oil.
Add the garlic and saute until golden brown, not burnt.
Add the onion and then add the tomatoes. Fry until both have soften.
Add a tiny amount of salt and pepper. Stir.
Pour in the beaten egg. Move the pan from side to side to ensure that the tomatoes and onion are covered by the egg.
Lower down the heat and cover the torta and let it cook in its own juices. This would take at least 3 minutes.
It is also applicable to put the pan under the grill to cook the top of the eggs torta.
Running a spatula along the sides of the torta, loosen and then transfer to a serving plate.
Serve hot with green salad and some buttered bread.
