Ingredients

2/3 cup rice, long grain 120 g
1/2 cup frozen peas 60 g
1 eggs size large, beaten
1 1/2 tbsp canola oil 23 mL
1/2 onions, finely chopped 100 g
1 slice smoked ham, diced 130 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Cook the rice. Cook the peas, still frozen, by plunging them 3-4 min in a small pot of boiling salted water. Drain them, then set aside. In a small bowl, beat the egg, then set aside.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté 2-3 min until it becomes translucent. Add the rice then stir-fry 2 min, breaking up the rice with a wooden spoon.
  3. Make a well in the rice, exposing the bottom of the skillet. Add the remaining oil then stir in the egg. Immediately stir-fry to incorporate the egg throughout the rice, until the egg is almost cooked through, 1-2 min. Add the ham, peas, salt, and pepper then stir-fry 1-2 min until it is heated through.
  4. Serve on the warmed dishes.

Quick, easy, and tasty. The kids love it and can make it by themselves. What would you want more?

It was simple, quick, and tasty but it lacked some flavour. We are going to make it again but next time we're going to add soya sauce in the final step and a few more seasonings. Prepping the rice in advance truly made it a 10 minute recipe.
