Recipe:

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  2. Beat and scramble 4 large eggs; cook, remove and set aside.
  3. Add remaining 2 teaspoons of sesame oil, 2 teaspoons minced ginger, and 2 chopped cloves of garlic and cook until soft.
  4. Add 1 12-ounce bag of broccoli slaw, 2 cups of bean sprouts, 2 sliced scallions, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar, stir and cook covered until tender.
  5. Add the eggs and 2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce, cook while stirring to coat vegetables.
