Special Fried Rice

We can't resist the healthier version of this classic side. This dish can be served with any Chinese stir fry and is a great way to use up leftover rice.


  1. 1 Cook the rice according to the pack instructions.

  2. 2 Heat a wok over a high heat. Add the oil before pouring in the eggs. Use a spatula or spoon to gently break up the eggs as they set.

  3. 3 Once the eggs have started to set, tip in the cooked rice, peas and sweetcorn. Stir and heat through.

  4. 4 Pour over the soy sauce and stir again. Finally, stir through the nuts, spring onions and coriander.
