Quick dish for the gang!
Great for using up 3 day old rice and any vegetables in the fridge 🤷🏽‍♀️

Take a little of bit of inspiration from many cuisines with this massively delicious fried rice recipe. With crispy, fresh broccoli, carrots, vegan beef, just egg and some umeboshi on the side!
This moreishly aromatic Japanese inspired fried rice, is a match made in heaven.

Ingredients

• 400g cooked Japanese rice
• 200g Lightlife vegan minced beef
• 2 diced carrots
• 2 spring onions
• Broccoli florets
• 1.5 tsp vegetable oil
• 1.5 tsp sesame oil & 1 tsp soy sauce
Just Egg

1.Start by slicing up the spring onion, and chopping the carrots and broccoli into bite sized pieces. In a separate bowl whisk the just egg.

2. Warm 1.5 tsp of sesame and vegetable oil in a frying pan. Add the beef and cook until browned.

3. Add the rice and soy sauce, mixing well. Pour on the egg and go nuts stirring. You want the egg to evenly coat each of the rice grains. When the rice has begun to get a little bit crispy in places, garnish with the spring onion and serve with Umeboshi (Pickled Plum) on the side!

Tips

• Egg first vs. rice first is a fierce debate. I prefer rice first, but if you like your fried rice more crispy: cook the egg and keep to one side before cooking the beef, then add the egg back when you cook the rice.
• My top secret tip is to use cold rice. If you don’t have any leftover rice, just pop your rice in the fridge for a little bit to cool it down before cooking. This helps to avoid mushy rice.
