Fried rice would have to be up there on my favourites list hey. It’s relatively cheap to make, it’s super colourful and yummy and you can have it hot or cold ! Wonderful.
– 2 cups of long grain rice
– 3 dried chinese sausages – you can find these in the Asian aisle of your supermarket – sliced finely
– 2 corn cobs, kernals shaved off with a sharp knife
– 1 capsicum, diced finely
– 1/2 cup of frozen peas
– 1 cup of diced bacon
– 4 eggs, whisked in a small bowl
– 2-3 lengths of spring onions, sliced finely
– 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
– 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
– 1 1/2 tablespoons of sesame oil
– 1/2 a teaspoon of chinese five spice
– chilli flakes *optional
1. Cook your rice according to instructions. Drain, and rinse with cold water. Then place into a large dish, fluff it up with a fork, cover with glad wrap and refridgerate until cool.
2. In a medium sized saucepan on a medium heat, add your whisked eggs – creating an omelete. Swirl the eggs around the pan until just cooked, flip and cook for a further 30sec and remove from the pan. Roll the omelete like a crepe and slice finely. Set aside.
3. Meanwhile, stir fry the bacon, chinese sausage, capsicum and corn kernals for about 5minutes on a medium heat in a large wok. Add the peas, and the rice and stir slowly and well making sure it’s all combined.
4. In a small bowl or cup, combine your sauces and chinese five spice, whisk well and pour over your rice, mix well making sure all the grains are covered in your sauce.
5. Transfer to a large bowl or serving dish, topped with the omelete slices and spring onion and serve hot along your favourite Asian mains.
Serves 6+. You can pretty much chuck what ever you have in the veggie crisper and freezer in fried rice.. make it your own 🙂
