Ingredients

  • pound baking potatoes diced low fat
  •  garlic clove minced
  •  onion diced finely
  • can tomatoes diced drained
  •  eggs 
  • Bunch spring onion finely chopped
  • 0.3 cup cilantro leaves chopped
  • tablespoons vegetable oil 
  • tablespoons soy sauce low-sodium
  • servings salt and pepper 

Equipment

  • frying pan
  • ladle
  • whisk
  • mixing bowl

Directions

  1. In a medium-heated large skillet, add a little oil and thoroughly cook the meat and potatoes along with soy sauce, garlic and onions. Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine cooled meat mixture with the eggs, tomatoes, cilantro and scallions. Season with salt & pepper and whisk until evenly incorporated.
  3. In the same skillet in medium heat, ladle just enough to form a thin pancake-size patty, one batch at a time. Cook both sides, flipping over after 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to over brown the eggs.
  4. Transfer to a plate, cut in wedges (for bite-size servings) and garnish with cilantro leaves, if you want.
