Special vegetarian fried rice

all details

Cook the rice ahead of time, allow it to cool, then spread out on a tray lined with plastic film. Refrigerate overnight if you have time - the drier the rice, the better the fried rice.

    Despite the preparation time it is a good way of using left over rice. Not for vegans with egg but in keeping with a basic fried rice. 3 eggs in the omelet is a good way to boost the protein. A tip. If you pour the beaten egg into hot oil in the wok you get a light fluffy omelet, don't overcook it. Another tip is to use another beaten egg mixed through the rice just before it is finished cooking. Gives enhanced flavour and you can leave out the soy sauce. I only use light soy and sparingly as salt shouldn't be overdone. And if you want to stray from the vegetarian theme a little char siu and maybe shredded chicken from last nights roast chook.
