In this recipe, the luffa is stir fried with eggs.
The first thing to do is to remove the hard skin of the luffa with a peeler. The skin can be quite hard. I cut them into strips of half cm thick. I find that blanching them in boiling water for 1 minute make it easier to cook and the taste comes out better. Taste is mildly sweet.

2 eggs, beaten
