Reader’s Recipes: Marie-Cecile’s Simple Fried Rice
I have a recipe for you. It is a simple fried rice I prepared for today’s lunch. I guess you may want to try it yourself.
For two persons:
Splash of vegetable oil – 20 ml
Rice – 125g
Sesame oil – 10ml
Dark Soy Sauce – 30 ml
1 big carrot or 2 medium carrots
1 spring onion
1/2 garlic clove
Cook the rice per instructions (It is best to cook the rice the previous day or use leftover rice)
Cook scrambled eggs in the wok, set aside. Do not add salt.
Chop the carrot and the bacon, mince the clove
Put them in a splash of hot vegetable oil in the wok
Let them cook a bit
Add the rice and the soy sauce. Raise the heat, stir a bit and wait until the rice “pops” , then lower the heat
In the meantime, mince the spring onion
Add the reserved eggs and the minced spring onion
Add the sesame oil (fragile, best to add just at the end of the cooking and not too much because it has a strong flavour)
Add salt and pepper to taste
Stir and NOM!

Great recipe, just one reminder here – when I worked on Morrisons Deli we were taught about the risks of leftover rice. It is to do with a specific type of bacteria which can cause lethal food poisoning, so make sure you cool it quickly and keep it in the fridge till the next day.
