Method

  1. Cook the rice following pack instructions. Heat 2 tsp oil in a large frying pan or wok. Add the ginger and garlic and fry for 1 min. Tip in the veg and stir-fry over high heat for 3-4 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the eggs with the coriander and seasoning. Heat a small non-stick frying pan with the remaining oil. Add the egg, stir once, then allow to cook over a gentle heat until almost set. Flip (using a plate if necessary) and cook on the other side until cooked through. Tip onto a board and cut into strips.

  3. Add the drained cooked rice, soy sauce, sesame oil and chilli jam to the veg, mixing to heat through. Divide into bowls and top with the omelette strips, a few coriander leaves and sesame seeds.

Made this last night and it was a real winner. Didn't have chilli jam so i used a table spoon of mango chutney instead and it went well. I also had some courgettes to use up so i grated half of one. Will be making this again.

I was looking for a meat free recipe and came across this one. It's really fantastic but a busy. Prep is key really. Will use fresh chillies with garlic and ginger though.

This was a tasty dish but I agree with Alex that it shouldn't be listed as easy. There were lots of things going on at once in a short space of time and so I overcooked the brown rice. The sesame seeds were delicious though and really added to the recipe!

have made many times now, a firm favourite.
i usually used left over rice (normally white basmati) and its always lovely and alot quicker than cooking from scratch.

lovely recipe, simple and easy to do, can get all the veg prepared whilst the rice is cooking

Easy & tasty & feels virtuous - I make this up for a packed lunch with chilli oil instead of the sesame oil and sweet chilli sauce in place of the chilli jam.Served with a big wedge of lime.Don't see the need for milk in the omlette though. Always attracts 'Oooohs and Ahhhs' from my co-workers.

I made this last night but had to tweak it somewhat as couldnt find any fresh coriander so ended up having the rice with flaked mackerel in Ketjap Manis. Also i didnt have chilli jam so used sweet chill and kaffir lime leaf sauce. Very nice!

Really tasty. It's a bit of a shame that this is listed as an easy recipe, brown rice is not easy took cook at all. As a novice cook I had a hard time getting the rice to the right standard, this made this recipe not worth cooking as it took so long.

I made this without the omelette, but it was absolutely delicious! Cutting up the carrots takes aaaages but it's worth it.

This is a really fantastic meal - full of delicious flavours, textures, and no meat! It's also a nice quick easy dish to throw together with what you have lying around, and economical too! Very popular in my house.

Packed with flavour and texture. This is now in my top ten weekday meals. Glad to have a non-meat dish as delicious as this. Plus there's plenty of scope to add different things in the stir-fry. Thanks.
