     The Sesame Chicken is a side dish to the Egg Fu Yung rather than the main course.

Egg Fu Yung (Chinese Pancakes with Cabbage & Brown Rice)

Total time: 35 minutes
    If you cook the rice with water or vegetable stock, you have a lovely vegetarian main course.  The rice adds 'substance' to the egg although you really can't tell that it's there.  The cabbage retains just enough crunch.  They go together quickly if the rice is cooked in advance.
