Egg Foo Yung is a traditional Chinese pancake that can be enjoyed at breakfast time, dinner time, or anytime. This is a bare-bones basic recipe that can be whipped up in a matter of minutes. The broccoli in this recipe is versatile, and bean sprouts could be a good substitute. —Katie

  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 3 tablespoons broccoli florets, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons celery, minced
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce

  2. heat canola oil in a large over medium high heat and pour mixture evenly into pan (in a fairly thin layer)

Finally just made the recipe and loved it! For my tastes i used baby bok choy, cremini mushrooms and red onion. Next time will serve over brown rice with tamari. Sorry i waited so long to try it...
