    • Pour half of the egg mixture into the skillet and swirl it around to form a thin layer.
    • Cook the omelette for about 2-3 minutes until the bottom is set and lightly golden. Then, carefully flip it over and cook for another minute. Repeat the process with the remaining egg mixture.
    • Once both omelettes are cooked, transfer them to a plate and set aside.

    • In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey or brown sugar, and grated ginger to make the sauce.
    • Pour the sauce over the vegetables in the skillet and toss everything together until well coated. Cook for another minute.
