Eggs are undeniably versatile and an affordable source of protein. Wag itong ismolin, dahil hindi lang ito pang agahan. There are so many ways to turn eggs into a meal with as little prep time as possible. At kahit gaano pa ito ka-simple, we can make our egg dishes eggciting just by tweaking some recipes we already love. Ka-Cookmunity, let’s turn the spotlight on to this common pantry ingredient – the egg.
Here’s a saucy, one-pot dish inspired from the Middle-East. Just sauté onion, bell pepper, and garlic in a heated pan with oil. Season with paprika, chili flakes, black pepper, and AJI-GINISA® Flavor Seasoning Mix for that meaty ginisarap taste na swak na swak sa meat-free dish na ‘to!
Add tomatoes – which is a good source of Lycopene, an antioxidant which helps reduce risks of developing heart diseases and cancer – and tomato sauce then mix well. Let it simmer on low heat until the sauce thickens. You can add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar to balance out the tartness of the fresh tomatoes.
Once it thickens, create holes in the pan then crack the eggs in the holes. Cover the pan then let the eggs cook until they’re set or at your desired doneness. Sprinkle with chopped parsley then serve! This dish is best paired with garlic bread.
Instead of plain boiled egg, try turning it into Sarciado!
First, stir-fry onion, garlic, and tomatoes until softened and fragrant. Add the bell peppers and water then simmer for a minute. Bell peppers are rich in Vitamin C which contributes in strengthening our immune system.
Pour the beaten eggs then level up this dish with AJI-GINISA® for a more meaty taste! Season with fish sauce, black pepper, and sugar. Mix well then cover for a few minutes. Add the boiled eggs then garnish with chopped onion leeks. Serve and enjoy with hot steamed rice.

White Beans & Kangkong Omelette
How about adding new twist to omelette recipe that’s rich in Fiber which helps lower bad cholesterol levels in the body?
First step is to prepare the white beans. Soak these in water overnight to help them soften. Make sure to use clean water and not the soaking water in boiling the white beans.
Then, prepare the filling by sautéing garlic, kangkong and boiled white beans in a pan with heated oil. Cook until kangkong leaves have wilted then season with salt, pepper, and AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning to enhance the natural flavors and increase the umami taste of the dish. Mix well then set aside to cool.
In a bowl, beat eggs then season with AJI-NO-MOTO®. Add the vegetable mixture then mix well.
In the same heated pan with oil, pour the egg and vegetable mixture then cook until the eggs are half set then fold the omelette in half. Slice into five equal portions then serve!
Because we love everything Korean, let’s prepare this Korean dish that is a good source of Choline, which is important in improving brain health.
First, beat eggs and vinegar in a bowl. Adding vinegar to the egg will make it firm and set faster. Season with AJI-NO-MOTO® for that added umami burst of flavor to the eggs. Add the finely chopped carrots and leeks then mix well.
In a pan, heat oil. Pour ¼ cup of the egg mixture then start rolling when egg mixture is beginning to set. Put the roll on the edge of the pan then pour another ¼ cup of the egg mixture. Continue the process for 3 times to create 1 roll. Repeat until all egg mixture has been used. Set aside to cool.
Slice the egg roll into 1/2-inch-thick. Place this on a serving plate and enjoy with your favorite dip!
