During my generation, this long bean omelette dish was popular among kids. Most mothers or caregivers love to cook this classic dish because it’s so simple and easy to whip up.

I had adapted and modified this recipe from Noobcook. Although this recipe may sound effortless to cook, getting a nice-looking omelette may be quite tricky for first timers. So, do hop over to PAGE 2 for more tips and step-by-steps photos.
If you have your children who are picky on greens or new to long bean, you can make it more palatable by reducing the amount of long beans used. If you do so, don’t forget to adjust the amount of seasonings accordingly. Besides serving with rice or congee, it also makes a good finger food by dipping with tomato ketchup. Another effective way to entice your child to try out this dish is to slice omelette into triangle shapes. My son was so fascinated when he first spotted it on the dining table and exclaimed, “Mama, I love your egg pizza!” With this wonderful compliment, I promised him that it would be a regular dish in our family meal.
To all the wonderful mothers (and mothers-to-be) in the world, HAVE A MEMORABLE AND ENJOYABLE MOTHER’S DAY! KEEP UP YOUR GREAT JOB!
