fry up some onion and garlic in some oil (ginger as well if you like, or chilli, or both), add some cooked rice (you may need to add some more oil, but only if necessary, may also need to reduce heat slightly), then add some vegies (corn, chopped capsicum, slightly cooked bits of broccoli - i just run them under boiling water - , peas, sundried tomato if you're feeling extravagant) and add some meat if you want (I use tuna, you could do some bacon with the onion/garlic). then add a dash of fish sauce and soy sauce to taste and stir through (the fish sauce really does add some oomph even though it smells gross when you add it). Add 1-2 eggs, depending on how much you're making and allow them to cook slightly before stiring through to cook to completion.

Eat. Is yum. The bloke reckons so anyway.

I use whatever is handy to make my fried rice and yep I use rice cooked the day before, I also add a beaten egg that I mix thru at the end when its all cooked and it coats the rice and makes it taste YUM( I pinched the idea off Nigella)

why not jessbabes- one of the fun of "diet foods" is taking favourite recipes and tweaking them to make them more calorie concious!!! dont give up on yummy food cause your on a diet just get creative :D

As long as you're light on the oil (make it a nice canola) and not too much added fatty meat etc., fried rice can be quite healthy! I often dont even use oil, I dry fry. For variety I make a dish I called "Lamb's wool." I mix in a little coconut and put it under the griller, turn it and crisp it up. My husband and kids love it. I created this a few decades ago - although not so unique in these days of Thai takeaway.

Rice is bad

Postby Kathndig » Tue Aug 28, 2007 1:10 pm

Hi rice is a big no no in the big diet scheme of things however basmati rice is a good alternative(half the fat), but may not go so well frying.
