An easy delicious recipe for egg fried rice that you can make at home yourself to be much healthier for you than ordering from a takeaway.



300g freshly cooked long-grain rice.

4 eggs

2 tsp grated fresh ginger

1.5 tbsp light soy sauce

2 spring onions, thinly sliced

Low-calorie cooking spray


Beat the eggs with the ginger and half of the soy sauce in a bowl until well combined.

Heat the low-calorie cooking spray in a large frying pan over a high heat then add egg mixture and stir constantly for around half a minute until softly scrambled. Add the cooked rice, spring onions, and the remaining soy sauce and toss together for 1-2 minutes until the rice is piping hot and all well combined. 

Do not over mix or it will get mushy!


This also works well with jasmine rice.

When cooking your rice ensure it is not over cooked otherwise it will not work well when then stirred into the egg mix.
