Ingredients and Directions


  1. Start by whisking eggs until well mixed and blended.

  2. In a 10-inch nonstick sauté pan, warm oil, then ladle approximately 2-ounces of egg into pan and move around to make thin single-layer of scrambled egg. Gently cook on one side until egg is set, slide on to baking sheet and repeat with rest of eggs until all cooked (do not stack cooked eggs.)

  3. Next peel and quarter cucumbers; spoon out seeds and julienne cucumbers into long thin strips, add to mixing bowl.

  4. Then thinly slice scallions and add to mixing bowl (reserve a pinch for garnish.)

  5. Now take all cooled egg “crepes” and gently roll up, then slice into ¼-inch circles, add to mixing bowl.

  6. Add miso vinaigrette, sesame seeds, plus salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Gently combine all ingredients and mound into bowl and top with reserved scallions for garnish.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
