Cheap Egg Fried Rice

Published Monday, 24 November, 2008 by Kirsty

Great Chinese side dish,and good for using up leftover rice



  • Serves 4
  • Two tablespoons of Soy sauce
  • 75g of uncooked express rice (if using leftover rice just add it to the wok straight away)
  • 100g green beans (optional)
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Vegetable oil (or ideally sesame oil if you have it)
  • Salt and pepper to season


1. Make rice to packet instructions and season with soy sauce and a pinch of salt (it is worth remembering that soy sauce is very salty so don't over do it)

2. Heat oil in a wok or frying pan and fry the chopped spring onions and green beans for 2-3 minutes

3. Pour in the egg and cook for 2 minutes, stirring it so it scrambles the whole time

4. Stir in the cooked rice. Mix well and season with pepper.
