Fried Rice Recipe

easy-fried-rice-recipe-not-fried

easy-fried-rice-recipeWe had another of the children’s favourite meals last week – Fried Rice. Although we call this dish fried rice, the rice is steamed and not actually fried so it quite healthy and the kids love it. You could use any vegetables you had on hand for this dish, eg corn kernels, mushrooms, peas. We tend to use the same ones as listed below, as this combination is the children’s favourite.

Fried Rice Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Rice White
  • 1 Large Capsicum Red chopped finely
  • 3 Large Carrots grated
  • 8 Rash Bacon (I use Shortcut Rindless) chopped
  • 8 Large Eggs
  • 6 sticks of Spring Onions
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

Method:

  1. Put rice on to cook by your preferred method. We have a rice cooker and I use that. While rice is cooking I tend to get each ingredient ready. Firstly I crack all eggs into a bowl and beat lightly.
  2. Chop bacon into even pieces, about 1.5cm x 1.5cm.
  3. Peel and grate carrots.
  4. Finely chop capsicum.
  5. Slice finely the spring onions.
  6. Heat a large non stick frying pan to a medium temperature and then pour egg mixture into pan. Cook this like an omelet, pulling away the sides to enable all of the mixture to cook. Once the mixture has firmed and looks like it has browned slightly on the bottom, then using an egg lifter, divide the egg into four parts. This makes it easier to turn each section over to cook the other side. Once the second side has browned, remove from the pan and allow to cool.
  7. Add oil to the pan and turn up heat slightly. Once oil is hot, add the bacon and cook to desired taste. I like it to be crispy.
  8. Leaving the bacon in the pan, add spring onions and cook, stirring constantly for about a minute.
  9. Add the capsicum and carrot, cooking and stirring frequently for about 2-3 minutes.
  10. Chop egg into pieces of about 2cm x 2 cm.
  11. Turn heat down on pan to low and add rice, mixing the ingredients through.
  12. Finally add egg to the pan and mix through evenly.
  13. Season with salt and pepper if required.

My children love to have this with some sweet chilli sauce or soy sauce drizzled on top.

    Hi Nic,

    Tried mexibake last week – what a success – all three kids & dad asked for seconds. I served the kids with taco, and ‘grown ups’ with wholemeal wraps! The recipe was so generous that i made a smaller mexibake for nan & pop who loved it too! Defintite regular on our menu.
    Thanks!
