This recipe for egg fried rice is submitted by a reader. Serves 4 - 5 as a side dish.


  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups leftover cooked rice (200 g, 7 ounces dry weight before cooking)
  • 100 grams/4 ounces frozen peas (defrosted)
  • 4 spring onions (green onions), finely chopped
  • 100 grams/4 ounces bean sprouts
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • Ground white pepper, to taste


1. Beat the egg and sesame oil in a small bowl.

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan. When the oil is shimmering and almost smoking add the rice and stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes, until completely heated through.

3. Add the peas, spring onion and bean sprouts. Stir-fry for about 3 minutes, turning the rice constantly.

4. Season well with soy sauce and pepper, then push to one side of the pan. Pour the beaten egg on the other side of the pan and leave for about 10 seconds to set.

6. Using a chopstick, stir around the egg to break it up and then toss around with the rice. Stir-fry for a further minute and serve.

Cook’s Notes: Feel free to add extras such as chopped ham or cooked prawns.

easy to make and commom ingredients, Member bouncefactor

This is a simple easy to make recipe that doesn't have really any exotic ingredients so is good in a pinch when you don't want to have to run to the store. Make it a complete meal by adding some tofu, cooked chicken, small shrimp etc.... I akso like to add extra veggies cut up small or thin like Nappa(chinese cabbage), bamboo shoots, even brocolli if it is blanched and cut small. when added. Nothing fancy but is quick and dirty. SAteam the rice the night before and have pre cook the meat and it is a fast dinner
