Broccoli with Egg White Sauce 西兰花炒蛋白酱


The end of the week is finally coming. The week has been nothing short of draining after dealing with various people affairs at work. And all I need now is probably more comfort food. And come last weekend, I prepared the Broccoli with Egg White sauce that’s so simply delicious that I feel I ought to share it !! In fact, it is such a no-brainer dish that can be wrapped up in less than 30 minutes.


There are a lot of greens that I don’t really eat, especially salads. Because they felt so raw and cold that always get me into a tummy ache, so I hardly take any salads. And because of that as well, there are also quite a number of other greens that I don’t fancy. Fortunately, broccoli is still something that’s relatively acceptable. So in all means that is, I tried to find ways to make my broccoli dish as tasty as possible.


I saw this dish at one of the Chinese restaurants and they are serving it at a whopping price of more than $10 !! But with just one stem of broccoli, 2 eggs and some imitation crab meat which will probably set u back at most $3 if you choose to cook it yourself ! And perhaps healthier, because no MSG is used. Well, this has surely make it to my list of comfort foods now and I am sure it will make it to yours and everyone in the household as well !!

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Chinese
Serves: 25mins
  • 200g broccoli, cut into florets
  • 35g diced crab meat
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 100ml stock (either home-made/chicken stock, if using store bought and tends to be saltier, please adjust with some water accordingly.)
  1. Heat up some water in a pan till boiling and add in 1 tsp of sesame oil. Blanch the broccoli florets in the boiling water till soften, approximately 3-4 minutes. (The addiing of sesame oil is to allow the broccoli to retain its "bright green" colour after that and not turn dull.) Dish and drain the broccoli and set aside.
  2. With the same boiling water, add in the diced crab meat. Allow it to be blanch briefly and drain. Set aside.
  3. Heat up the cooking oil and add in the minced garlic. Saute till fragrant.
  4. Add in the broccoli florets and stir briefly.
  5. Add in the stock and oyster sauce and allow it to boil.
  6. Move all the broccoli florets to the sides of the pan, making a well in the middle of it. Add in the egg whites. Stir the egg whites quickly in a few swift motions to allow it to mix. After the egg whites turn pale white and look cuddled up, off the flame.
  7. Place the broccoli florets along a round plate. Add in egg whites to the middle and top with the diced crab meat.
