So being at university I don’t have all the time in the world (strange after 4 months of holiday) so I like to cook and prepare things in advance so that I can eat them quickly when needed. Fried rice is incredibly simple to make and you can add any vegetables and meat to it you like to incorporate those important fresh ingredients. All you’ll need are eggs, rice, and your choice of vegetables.
Prepare the rice using a rice cooker or boiling in a pot. Cook your vegetables/meat if needed.
Heat a pan (thank you mother for the non-stick one, makes it so much easier!) until hot and add some oil. When hot, crack an egg into the pan. Wait 10 seconds before gently stirring a few times. You don’t want to completely scramble the egg as you want it to slightly ‘bind’ to the rice. When most of the egg is cooked, add the rice. Continue frying and stirring so that the egg and rice mix together.
Then add in your meat/vegetables one at a time.
When you are satisfied that everything is warmed up and mixed together nicely, turn off the heat. Add a splash of soy sauce and serve. Fried rice is really easy to store in the fridge and microwave for a quick meal (which is what I did), just keep refrigerated.
