This is a really quick family dinner and you can easily make it into a larger meal by adding sausages or vegetables.
NOTE: I would advise against re-heating rice as it is a common source of food poisoning. However, if you do, make sure that it is refrigerated less than 1 hour after cooking and that it’s not more than 24 hours old.
Egg Fried Rice
300g long grain rice, uncooked
200g mixed vegetables, frozen
4 happy eggs
Few sprigs Coriander or Parsley
1 tblsp Sesame oil
3 Spring onions
Dash of Soy sauce
Dash of Tabasco
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
. . . . . .
To make the Fried Rice
Add the rice to a large pan of salted, boiling water. Check how
long the packet indicates you should cook the rice for, then keep
it at a rolling boil for 2 minutes less than this. Carefully Add the
frozen vegetables, bring back to the boil and strain.
While the rice and vegetables are cooking, add the sesame oil to
a frying pan, whisk the eggs together and pour in, cooking on a
low heat until the omelette is cooked through. Place on a
chopping board, roll it up and slice into ribbons.
Pick the Coriander/Parsley leaves off the stalks, finely chop the
stalks, slice the spring onions diagonally and into strips, put aside.
To assemble, put the rice and vegetables into the frying pan that
the omelette was cooked in and warm on a low heat. Add the
omelette ribbons, Coriander/Parsley stalks, spring onion pieces
and season with Soy, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce, to taste.
To serve, spoon onto a warm plate and decorate with Coriander
/ Parsley leaves and strips of spring onion.
The happy egg co.
In 2010, I was proud to be asked to become brand ambassador for the happy egg co.
The happy egg co. is the UK’s number one brand of free range eggs, and believe that hen welfare is key.
The happy egg co. are firmly of the belief that happy hens lay wonderfully tasty eggs, which is why they want to be experts in hen husbandry and ahead of the game to make sure the girls are as happy as can be. They’ve even won a Good Egg award from Compassion in World Farming in recognition of all their hard work.
They believe that hens enjoy being busy and that’s why they not only provide wide open pastures for the hens to roam and forage, but also equip all of their farms with an assortment of activities to enhance the hens’ natural environment. This includes play kits for perching, sandpits, trees and brashings. Only specially selected British free range farms are chosen to become happy egg farms, all of which are approved by both the British Lion Standard and RSPCA Freedom Food.
