Egg Fried Rice

Ok, so this is my first 'helpful' thread, so hopefully some of you will find it useful.
I basically got bored of scrambled eggs on toast for breakfast, and decided that an egg/rice combination would pretty similar in terms of nutritional value.

This one's nice and simple, but I can't stop eating it!
This is how I make it:

100g brown rice
3 medium eggs
garlic
black pepper
soy sauce
chilli flakes (if you like it spicy)

1. Simply cook the rice first and then drain it as usual.
2. In a pan, put in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil, the garlic, black pepper and chilli flakes and heat it all up
3. After the garlic starts to sizzle, throw in the rice, followed by some soy sauce
4. Mix it all around
5. Break and whisk the eggs, and then pour them into the pan
6. Mix it all in there until the egg is cooked to your liking

Obviously everyone's tastes are different, which is why I haven't put amounts for the ingredients. The beauty of this is that you can always throw in anything else you fancy.

    How about using "Canola Oil" instead of "Olive Oil"?

    Has a higher heat threshold for transfatty acid conversion.
    Put the Olive Oil on when cooled on the plate???

    Sounds very yummy!!!!

    Well that I did not know!
    I just throw in Olive Oil out of habit, but I'm sure any oil would be fine.

    Seriously, I don't know if it's just because I've made it, but I just can't get enough!

    Yes! I've just discovered the wonders of sesame seed oil. I've also started throwing some sesame seeds in with it for some extra nutrition. I hear they're good for you.

    And swift, I normally cook a batch of rice to last me a few days, that way all I have to do is throw the rice in the pan along with the other ingredients and the egg. That takes about 5 - 10 minutes.

    I'm going to give it a try next time the Mrs is working late and I have to fend for myself.

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    Glad to hear everyone's enjoying it! One thing I would say is to use Dark Soy Sauce, because it gives a lot more flavour and you don't have to use as much.

    All this food talk is making me hungry. Time to make a batch I think!
