Vegetable Fried Rice
Cook as much rice as your family usually eats (if I'm in a hurry I use Minute rice) according to package directions.
As rice cooks julienne or finely chop a handful of favourite vegetables (I use carrots, celery and/or peas)
Stir fry veggies in a little olive oil for a minute or 2 in a big frying pan. Add the rice and stir together.
Push rice and vegetable mixture to one side of the pan. Scramble an egg on the other side. When egg is cooked mix it all together. Add a dash of ginger and and 2-3 tablespoons of soya sauce.
