Easy fried rice recipe. Perfect to use big amounts of leftover rice or help fix the cravings for fatty foods 🙂 This can be made in advance and reheated, as well as frozen. You can adapt with less oil if you want a lighter version. You can also use different veggies


Ingredients

  • 8-10 cups of cooked rice, cooled
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 medium onion or 3 green / spring onion
  • 25g Orgran “easy egg”*
  • 120 ml water
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Ginger, grated, to taste (I love ginger and use a 3cm piece)
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons of gluten free soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame oil (you can use normal oil if you do not like or don’t have)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Optional : bacon bits or coconut bacon
  • salt/pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Cut the carrot and onion in very small cubes, about 3-5 mm square. Crush the garlic and grate the ginger. Prepare the easy egg mix by mixing the 25g of easy egg, the water and 1 heaped tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  2. In a small pan, cook the easy egg to a scramble according to the directions. Season to taste and reserve.
  3. In a very large pan, heat up the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the garlic, ginger, onion and carrot, and cook on medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until translucent.
  4. Add the rice, the soy sauce, the peas and reheat. Add your scrambled “egg”. When all is hot and mixed well, add the 2 tablespoons of sesame oil , season to taste and fry for a few minutes. Add bacon bits or coconut bacon (optional).
  5. Serve or freeze for later. Enjoy 🙂

*if you do not have Orgran Easy egg, you can skip “egg” in the recipe, or you can substitute with chickpea flour. In this case I would suggest adding some seasoning such as turmeric and black salt if you have. In this recipe I used onion and not green onion, but I think the recipe works particularly well with spring onion.
