Lockdown Larder: Fridge Fried Rice

Lockdown Larder: Fridge Fried Rice

Something I seem to knock up at least once-a-week, and it takes less than 10 minutes. I tend to use up any veg we have hanging around, and if we have any prawns, chicken or other meat, that’s a bonus. 


Ingredients (based on what I usually have in the fridge / freezer / cupboards)

1 tbsp of sesame oil (if you don’t have this, olive oil is fine)
1 packet of microwavable rice (I like Uncle Ben’s Golden Vegetable one)
1 egg
Vegetables - I tend to use the following;
1 pepper, sliced
1 handful of spinach
1 celery stick, chopped into small pieces
Handful of sweetcorn, or if you have any, edamame beans
S&P
Soy Sauce (optional)

Lockdown food recipe

Heat up oil in a wok / frying pan until hot. Whilst doing this, microwave your packet of rice, and then once cooked, leave to one side.

Once oil is hot, add your veg, except the spinach. Stir fry for a few minutes until they start to soften. Then add the rice. Mix. If you’re adding prawns / other meat / tofu, then this is the stage you need to do this. 

Make a gap in the centre of the pan, and crack your egg directly into it. Allow to cook for around 20 seconds, then scramble, and mix into the rice and vegetables. Add S&P, spinach and give it a few minutes, before throwing into a bowl. Serve with a splash of soy sauce if you fancy, and tuck in.
