Ingredients: –

• 1 egg

• 2tsp sesame oil

• 2tbsp vegetable oil

• 200g/7oz long grain rice, (cooked, and left to go cold)

• 100g/4oz frozen peas, (defrosted, rinse under warm water to do this quickly)

• 4 spring onions, (finely chopped)

• 100g/4oz beansprouts (optional)

• 1-2tsp soy sauce

• Ground white pepper

Method: –

1. Beat together the egg and the sesame oil and put to one side.

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok, or a large frying pan. When its shimmering, almost smoking, add the rice and stir-fry for about 3-4 mins until completely heated through.

3. Add the peas, spring onions and beansprouts, (if using.) stir-fry the rice constantly round the pan, for approx. 3mins. Season well with soy sauce and pepper and push to one side of the pan. Pour in the beaten egg mixture to the other side and leave for about 10 secs, so it begins to set. Using a spatula, briskly swirl around the egg to break it up, and then toss around with the rice. Stir-fry for a further min and serve straight away.
