Jamie Oliver inspired fried rice.
So I was watching a Jamie Oliver cooking show last night on how he try’s to minimise his food waste, and how thousands of dollars worth of food is water each year due to it simply going off prior to being eaten or used.
One of the recipes he made was a fried rice. It looked super easy and super delicious!
We all now how I like eating healthy, clean, easy, yummy food so I decided to make my twist on his recipe.
1 x family size packet uncle bens brown rice – cool in microwave for 90 seconds
1 x teaspoon garlic paste
1 x tablespoon chilli paste
1/4 x cup hot chilli sauce
2 x eggs
1 x small tin corn kernels
1 x bunch rocket – Finely sliced
1 x 100gm hot salami sliced
1 x 100gm roast pork
I used sandwich sliced roast pork and salami, pre packed from the supermarket. I always have sandwich meat in the fridge. You can always use ham, beef, chicken whatever you prefer. Jamie Oliver used left over roast beef.
In a large non stick fry pan heat the garlic, chilli and rice storing until all combined.
Add the corn followed by the meats.
Once all combined add the hot chilli sauce, then 1 egg making sure the raw egg is evening dispersed and cooked.
Add the rocket combine and press down firm so that the rice will crisp against the fry pan bottom and edges. Again Jamie used cabbage rather than rocket. I had no cabbage so used rocket instead.
With a spoon make a small well in the centre of the fried rice and crack the 2nd egg into the well.
Put the lid on and turn the heat off and let sit for at minimal 30 minutes.
These flavours enhance overtime and by leaving it sit with a lid on, the 2nd egg will cool from the existing heat.
This will last up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge.
I serve with grilled haloumi…! Yumo!
Remember as with most of my recipes, you can add as little or as much spice and flavour as you like! I like a lot of bite in my chilli – this recipe is only mild, I generally add 1/2 cup of extra hot chilli sauce.
