Recipe Ingredients:

2 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 fresh or dried shiitake mushrooms, rehydrated in water, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 medium tomatoes, cut into 2-inch cubes

1 large egg, well beaten
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon MAGGI Seasoning Sauce

Cooking Directions:

  1. Heat canola oil in large, nonstick wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and mushrooms; cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 minute or until fragrant. Add tomatoes; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in soup mix and 4 cups water. Bring to a boil. Add crabmeat; bring to a second boil. Turn off heat. Stir soup in one direction with a chopstick or fork and slowly pour in the beaten egg so the egg forms long threads.
