Grandma's Green Bean Omelette

One of grandma's quintessential dish. As a matter of fact, this is the only way I've had green beans when I was living with grandma. Make sure you make this in small batches or the bottom would burn before the egg cooks (although I do enjoy a slightly browned omelette). This dish is very similar to egg foo young.

1 cup chopped green beans
3 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon chopped garlic.
2 tablespoon oil
salt and white pepper to taste

In a pan or wok, heat oil over low heat. Add in garlic and green beans. Season with salt and white pepper.

 Cook for about 5 minutes until green beans turn emerald green. Be careful not to burn the garlic.

Add in eggs and move the beans around so the egg sets to the bottom. Once it starts to set, flip it to cook the other side. Cook for another minute and then remove from heat. Plate the omelette and serve warm.
