Fried rice

This fried rice is a simple, comforting and satisying dish that takes 10 minutes to put together. The soy sauce, oyster sauce and rice wine vinegar provide a delicious umami flavour that takes just like your local takeout, but better.

It’s fresh, warm and cosy and super yummy sprinkled with dried fried shallots and spring onion.


Cooked rice: I cook two cups of rice in a rice cooker the morning of, then store it in the fridge.
Egg: for a yummy eggy flavour and fluffy texture.
Spring onion and dried fried shallot: to garnish! For extra crunch and flavour.
Soy sauce + oyster sauce + rice wine vinegar: for a delicious, slightly salty and umami flavour.
Veggies: I used frozen peas and a small tin on corn.
Bacon: for protein and flavour.


Egg free: Feel free to leave the egg out of this recipe.

Fried rice

This fried rice recipe comes together in 10 minutes and makes for the perfect weeknight meal. A simple three ingredient sauce creates a fried rice that tastes just like takeout, but better (fresher!). I like serving mine with green onion/spring onion and dried fried shallots. Loved by the whole family!
