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