Egg Foo Yung Keto-Style

Keto-style egg foo yung is the perfect way to enjoy a classic Chinese dish while sticking to a low-carb diet. Egg foo yung (also known as egg foo young) is a type of omelet that originated in China. It’s traditionally made with eggs, cabbage, bean sprouts, green onions, and sometimes other vegetables or proteins. The egg mixture is pan-fried in a wok and served with a flavorful sauce.

Most egg foo yung recipes are not keto-friendly because they use flour or breadcrumbs as a binder. However, with a few simple adjustments, you can transform this classic dish into a tasty, keto-friendly meal. Here’s how to make keto-style egg foo yung at home.


-4 large eggs, beaten
-1/2 cup shredded cabbage
-1/4 cup chopped green onions
-2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
-1 teaspoon minced garlic
-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
-1 teaspoon sesame oil


1. In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, cabbage, green onions, parsley, garlic, ginger, and salt. Stir until combined.

2. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.

3. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet; spread it around with a spatula to make an even layer. Let the omelet cook until it’s golden brown on the bottom, about 4 minutes.

4. Flip the omelet over and cook for another 2 minutes.

5. Remove from heat and cut into wedges.

6. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce and sesame oil.

7. Serve the egg foo yung with the soy sauce mixture and enjoy!

Keto-style egg foo yung is a delicious way to enjoy a classic Chinese dish while sticking to a low-carb diet. The adjustments you need to make to make it keto-friendly are simple; just leave out the flour and breadcrumbs and use olive oil instead of butter or vegetable oil. The result is a delicious, savory dish that you can enjoy without breaking your diet. Best of all, it can be ready in minutes and requires just a few simple ingredients. Try this recipe the next time you’re in the mood for an easy and delicious meal. Bon appetite!
