Prawn and Vegetable Foo Yung

This prawn and vegetable Foo Yung recipe is a protein packed Chinese style dish made of vegetables, prawns and omelette. 


Foo Yung

 It is fairly simple to prepare and results in a hearty dish that is large enough for two people to share.  Or one if you are very hungry.   If you halved the quantities below you could cook it in a smaller pan and voila!  A dish for one.  

If you wanted to make this vegetarian you could replace the prawns with cubes of tofu.
