Everyone loves a good fried rice and it took me a while to perfect this because when i used to add the eggs it would make my rice gluggy and yuck.... but i did my research and i realised you rice needs to be cooked and cold before you start! It works everytime! I use brown rice in this recipe because 1 i had never tried it before this and 2 because brown rice is a little more healthier for you than white rice. Enjoy!
1 Cup Brown Rice
1 Tablespoon Oil
1/2 Onion, chopped finely
1/2 Cup bacon bits, cooked till crispy
1 Small Carrot, diced finely
1/2 Cup Peas
1/2 Cup Corn
2 Eggs, whisked
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
Cook rice according to packet. Once cooked place in the fridge to cool.
Once rice is cold. Add oil to pan a pan and bring to a medium heat. Add onion, bacon,carrot peas and corn and cook until onion is soft and veggies are slightly cooked, around 5-8mins. Add cold rice and mix well. Cook until rice is hot. Push rice to one side of the pan, add the whisked eggs and fry until they just start to set. Once eggs have started to set combine with the rest of the mixed rice. Add soy sauce and stir to coat the fried rice. Once eggs have cooked serve straight away.
Note: You can add anything you like to this rice dish, maybe you would like to add some bean sprouts or some fresh herbs.
