Having made a few salted eggs at home, I couldn?t wait to try how they tasted like and made several traditional Chinese dishes with them. My dear readers, when you read this post, please don?t take the said sentence word by word literally, even though I intended to cook some traditional Chinese dishes. Truly, the dish I share today came from a very popular traditional one, yet I changed a lot in the way of using ingredients and cooking.
When it comes to stir frying spinach, both century egg (??) and salted egg????are widely used in order to create a combination of silver-like and golden colours mingled with jade-like spinach. On top of that, the dish has a very beautiful title, ????? (literally means ?Silver and Golden Eggs with Spinach?). The dish itself is quite humble, yet both the taste and name of the dish are very appealing. Well, when I cooked this dish again, I deliberately omitted the century egg. That said, many imprudent producers incorporate more poisonous lead into the curing process than before, that really puts me off. Since then, I haven?t eaten any century eggs for ages. Here comes my version, Golden Egg with Spinach.
