This Chinese classic comes loaded with stir-fried vegies and crunchy sprouts.


  • 80ml (1/3 cup) hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) water
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) peanut oil
  • 500g Swiss brown mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch gai lan (Chinese broccoli), ends trimmed, cut into 6cm lengths
  • 80g bean sprouts, trimmed


  1. Combine the hoisin sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl.
  2. Whisk together eggs and water in a jug. Heat 2 teaspoons of peanut oil in a wok over high heat. Add one-quarter of egg mixture, tilting wok to cover base and side. As omelette sets, lift edge so that any uncooked egg runs underneath. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until just set. Slide onto a plate and cover. Repeat, in 3 more batches, with 6 teaspoons of oil and the remaining egg mixture, reheating the wok between batches.
  3. Heat remaining peanut oil in wok over medium heat. Add mushroom and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Add the gai lan and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes or until gai lan just wilts.
  4. Divide omelettes among serving plates. Place one-quarter of bean sprouts on half of each omelette. Top with the mushroom mixture. Fold in half to enclose the filling. Drizzle over hoisin sauce mixture to serve.
