Soy-Marinated Eggs

Sometimes, we can get caught up grinding for hours and forget to eat. Back when I played World of Warcraft, I'd start playing before breakfast and before I knew it, it's past noon and my hands start shaking from hunger. I used to end up eating whatever I could find just to stop being hungry--and most of it was junk! But now, I've found many ways to prepare healthy snacks in case something like that happens again. A healthy snack doesn't have to take forever to make and in fact, you can make it in bulk. I'm always looking for ways to up my protein intake, and one of my favourite sources of protein is eggs! Why? Because an egg has about 6 grams of protein and there are so many ways to prepare it. This recipe is one of my favourites. It takes less than 20 minutes to prepare (less if you don't suck at peeling soft boiled eggs unlike me) and you can store it in the fridge for up to a week so you can snack on it whenever you want.


  • eggs (1 dozen, you can make less if you want to trial first)

  • soy sauce (1 cup)

  • dashi stock (1 & 1/2 cup, replace with water if you don't have access to it)

  • sugar (1/2 cup)

  • 5 spring onions

  • 1 onion

  • chilies (skip this if you don't like spicy)

  • sesame seed


  1. Boil eggs for 6 minutes. Set a timer! If you want a runny yolk, it's very important to remove the eggs from the heat on time.

  2. Prepare an ice bath for the eggs. Do this first in case the next step takes longer than you expect.

  3. While waiting for the eggs to boil, chop up your onions, spring onions, and chilies.

  4. Combine the soy sauce, dashi stock (or water), sugar, chopped up ingredients, and sesame seeds.

  5. When the timer goes off, drain the water and put the eggs into the ice bath immediately.

  6. After about 3 minutes, peel the eggs and put it into the marinade.

  7. Cover and marinate for at least an hour in the fridge. I usually don't touch mine til 24 hours later.

  8. Enjoy! You can eat it as it is, or with a bowl of steaming hot rice!
