Tomato and Egg Soup 番茄蛋汤

Lydia loves this soup.
Simple, easy, done in just 5 minutes!!

2 large tomatoes, cut into chunks.
2 large eggs
1L water
2 Tbsp cooking oil
Salt to taste
Good dash of pepper
Handful of Chopped spring onions

Heat wok/pot and put in oil. Put in tomatoes. Stir fry until slightly soft and put in eggs. Scramble and let the eggs cook until fragrant.
Put in water and bring to a boil. Let it simmer for 1 minute, season with salt and pepper. Put chopped spring onions into serving bowls and ladle soup onto the spring onions. Serve hot with rice :)

The scum on the soup is caused by the eggs. Don't worry about its looks :)


  1. This was the soup that my mum cooked so often when I still lived in her house.
    Yours look so much prettier!

  2. you put pepper, it is spicy abit?

    your daughter can eat?

  3. Angie,
    Thanks. I'm sure ur version will be even prettier

    Little bit of pepper won't be spicy la. My daughter can eat karipap one leh. I don't think one should teach ur child that the food is spicy.
    Let the child taste first. If she can accept it, she'll eat it automatically. If she feels uncomfortable with the heat, she'll spit it out. I see many parents scaring the kids that the food is spicy. I never scare my kids that way. Let them choose, to swallow or to spit.

  4. looks good and it is easy to cook when you run out of ingredients.

    : )

  5. Irene,
    Yup, it's one of my emergency soups :)

  6. defenitely will try this for my doter..yummy..yummy..

  7. Wendy, my kids love this soup! Thanks for the reminder, have not cooked this for a long time.

    And I agree with you on the child tasting the food. I add pepper to my cooks/soup and chilli (very mild for a start) to stir fry vegetables. I feel a need to train them to get accustomed to some spiciness. In fact, my 2yo enjoys eating laksa/curry, though she complained it's spicy, she kept coming back for more, hahaha!

  8. Zeta,
    Let me know the outcome :)

    Blessed Homemaker,
    Good!!! Glad to hear ur children are learning to eat spicy food. I am waiting for the day Lydia will eat Assam Laksa, then I can cook that more often cos hubby is not a fan of it.

  9. And it's vegetarian too! That's great. I'll make this for my hubby.

  10. I definitely will try to make this soup today - so easy and simple, thanks for sharing the recipe!

  11. Ju and mummyooi,

  12. Finally I successfully got at least one of your recipes done. HAHA..this is really simple but NICE!!! double thumb up!! Keep it up and thank you my friend...

  13. Patricia,
    Ha! Now I know which Patricia this is. Pei Sze ah??
