The delicate, refreshing flavor and soft, silky texture of loofah squash is enriched in this dish with a gentle swirl of beaten egg in its poaching liquid. Angled loofah (also known as Chinese okra or silk squash) resembles a long, slightly curved English cucumber with green, rough, ridged skin and a soft, white, slightly spongy interior.
