Microwave-Steamed Eggs

Ingredients

2 large eggs

1 cup instant or kombu dashi (see Tip), vegetable or chicken broth, or water

Pinch of salt

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon maple syrup

1 tablespoon finely snipped chives or scallion greens, for garnish (optional)

Directions

In a medium, microwave-safe shallow cereal bowl, whisk together the eggs, dashi and salt until very well combined, at least 30 seconds. Skim off any bubbles with a spoon or pop them by blowing on them.

Cover the bowl with a microwave-safe plate and microwave at 500 watts (on 50 percent power or power level 5 on a 1,000-watt microwave) until the eggs have just set and are no longer liquid in the middle, 5 to 7 minutes. (Every machine differs, so check for doneness at 5 minutes, then in 30-second intervals after that if needed.)

Let sit in the microwave to cool slightly, then carefully remove, uncover and drizzle with the soy sauce and maple syrup, and garnish with the chives, if using. Serve immediately.
