I want to share the recipe of a super easy Chinese-style pumpkin omelette today.
It has a omelette texture and the shape of a small pizza. The cooking process brings out more of the sweetness from the pumpkin.
I like making this dish for a weekend brunch once in a while, it takes 20 minutes to make and both Bryan and I love it!
You can make this dish in three easy steps:
- Season three eggs with salt, pepper and cooking wine.
- Add the pumpkin and chive into the egg mixture.
- Cook about five minutes each side until well done.
Top with sesame seeds to serve this pumpkin omelette and get ready to enjoy.
I like dipping the omelette slices in soy sauce. The sweetness of the pumpkin and the savory soy sauce compliment each other really well.
If you like this recipe, please leave a rating and share it with your friends!

Yummy omelette… the only fault is my ratio of chives to pumpkin is almost the same but the chives flavor overpowered the dish. Otherwise .. all super yummy
wow different dishes, making pumpkin omelette.
So, the pumpkin cooks in that short time? I always thought pumpkin took awhile, that is my worry – I was thinking maybe to pre-cook the pumpkin just a bit, to be sure….or no need?
Since the pumpkins have been cut into thin slices, they cook pretty quickly.
for this Chinese-style Pumpkin omelette recipe, Do I need to julienne the pumpkin into match sticks?? Is there a video on how to do this? Is it easy? It looks like a lot of hard work having to peel off the pumpkin skin that is tough to begin with.
please let me know soon. I wish to try it out tomorrow.
The easiest way would be to use a vegetable cutter, there’s a lot of great choices on Amazon!
I’ve tried this and I love it! Thanks so much Emma!
You are welcome! My pleasure!
