Fried Rice

This is a popular takeaway and seen as quite unhealthy. If you make it at home it's a good option of increasing your veggies.

What you'll need

Serves 4

  • A wok
  • Olive oil
  • Thai Reg Curry Paste (1/2 jar)
  • Onion diced
  • Broccoli head (in florets)
  • 3 carrots (julienned or grated)
  • 1 cup of Mushrooms (sliced)
  • 1 cup of shredded cabbage, white or red (optional) 
  • Bok choi 
  • 6 Eggs
  • 500g of brown rice (either cook your own or use a family pack of microwave rice)
  • Optional protein - prawns or chicken - but you are already getting protein from the eggs!
  • coriander and lime to garnish
  1. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in the wok, and add the onion, cook till soft then add the curry paste, stir for 1 minute (till aromatic)
  2. Add all the veggies and stir fry for about 5 minutes, or longer if you prefer them softer. 
  3. Add the brown rice and stir.
  4. Crack all 6 eggs on top of the rice and allow to cook for a few seconds, then stir to thoroughly distribute the egg throughout the food. 
  5. Enjoy with some lime juice and coriander
