Stir-fried cauliflower with egg

3 tbsp sunflower oil
2 tbsp finely minced Thai or regular garlic
3 eggs lightly beaten
2 cups quartered cherry tomatoes
2 cups cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 tbsp vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce
1 tbsp Maggi seasoning sauce
1/4 cup coarsely chopped green onions
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro

In a large wok or skillet, heat the sunflower oil over low heat. Add the garlic and stir until it is fragrant but not crispy, about 10 seconds. Make sure the oil is not too hot to prevent the garlic from burning. Move the garlic to one side of the wok.

Add the eggs to the empty side of the wok. Increase the heat to high. Using a ladle, mix the eggs together  with  the  garlic  and  oil. Keep stirring until the eggs are fully cooked, 1  to  2  minutes. Add  the tomatoes and cauliflower and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the mushroom oyster sauce and Maggie seasoning sauce and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes.

Remove from the heat, add the green onions and cilantro, and mix well. Serve immediately.
