This was the third most popular recipe on my 100 thousand views celebration post. As any other fried rice, this recipe is perfect for using whatever you have available in your fridge (within certain limits, of course), is delicious with cooked ham, chicken, or prawns. You may spice it up with some coriander or chilies… the sky is the limit. So why not come up with your own version? Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this one.
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- A one egg omelet, cut into thin strips
- 125 g of bacon chopped
- 175 g of sliced mushrooms
- 200 g of frozen peas
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1 tbsp. fresh ginger, grated
- 2 tsp. soy sauce
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 250 g of cooked basmati rice (cold)
Heat a wok or large frying pan until it is very hot. Add the bacon and mushrooms and sauté until golden, stirring all the time. Add the peas, garlic and ginger. Stir and cook for one minute.
Add the rice and stir fry for about 5 minutes on a high heat.
Mix soy sauce with sugar and add to the wok or pan. Incorporate the omelet, stir and serve immediately, accompanied by soy sauce so people can add more if they want.
