- In a heat-safe bowl—porcelain or stoneware work best—whisk together the eggs, water, scallions, and salt until fully combined.
- If using a microwave, cover the bowl with a plate and cook for 4 minutes.
- If steaming on a stovetop, add the bowl to a steamer and steam for 10 minutes over medium-high heat.
- Serve and enjoy.
Tip 1: You can also consider substituting broth (beef broth, chicken broth, seafood broth, or vegetable broth) for the water in this recipe, which will give the eggs a different, robust flavor. This flavorful version is a nice choice when serving a steamed egg as part of lunch or dinner.
Tip 2: For an extra bit of flavor, swap some of the salt for soy sauce.
Tip 3: For a nontraditional addition, top the cooked steamed egg with a sprinkling of cheese.
