There are two different kinds of snake beans in Hong Kong, green snake beans and white snake beans. Well, I only can get the green ones here in Australia. And green snake beans are more popular and less expensive than white snake beans. I used to make scrambled eggs with green snake beans for my family. I often dice the green snake beans and stir-fry them with eggs. This dish can make you feel full. My kids love this dish very much.

In a wok, add some oil and stir-fry the diced snake beans until fragrant and softened for a while. The heat will help the beans to bring out a hint of sweetness. Snake beans need a longer cooking time than other green vegetables. Be sure not to burn them though. Otherwise, it’d be a bitter taste. You might want to test the taste of the beans before you go ahead to stir fry with eggs, as long as you’re satisfied with the texture.
