Ingredients

Method

  1. Fill a roomy saucepan with water, bring to the boil and tip in a heaped teaspoon of salt - the water will bubble furiously. Pour in the rice, stir once and return to the boil, then turn the heat down a little so that the water is boiling steadily, but not vigorously.
  2. Boil uncovered, without stirring (this makes for sticky rice) for 10 minutes. After 8 minutes, throw in the frozen peas, boil for 2 minutes and drain (don’t rinse).
  3. Heat the sunflower oil in a wok and stir fry the bacon for 3-4 minutes until crisp. Tip in the red pepper and the garlic cloves and stir fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Beat the eggs, pour into the pan and stir fry until the egg just sets. Toss in the Chinese 5-spice

Really tasty and incredibly easy! I also added finely chopped green beans and used chicken strips instead of bacon, really happy with the result. I only made this for 1 so adjusted the proportions accordingly, but in future I would use more eggs (i only used one medium). Will be making this again!

I tried this out; I loved it! Chicken strips work as well as the bacon; the egg gave it a lovely flavour =D
