As with any recipe on Modernist Recipes DB, and certainly for stir-fry recipes, you need to have all your ingredients prepped before beginning to cook.
Add 1 tsp Chinese 5 Spice powder with the garlic for an authentic Chinese flavour
Add cubed smoked tofu with the vegetables
6 Green prawns wok fried in olive oil, salt and garlic are a lovely addition
Try adding 1 small tin of crab meat
1 large piece of white fish, like snapper or flathead cut into small pieces and cooked first like you would the garlic prawns. Add with the omelette
Firm tofu cut into cubes and cooked with a little tamari, sesame oil and water. Add with the vegetables.
Add chopped organic chicken fillets at the start with the spring onions
It is a good idea to prep your vegetables and leave them uncovered in the fridge overnight. This will dry the surface slightly and give you a better smoky character from the frying.
