This is one of my favourite quick and healthy recipes. You only need three basic ingredients (garlic, egg and rice) to make this dish so it's perfect when the fridge is practically empty and you don't have much time to cook


Bowl of cooked white rice (any type of rice)
2 cloves of garlic (peeled and grated)
1 egg (free range/organic preferably)
Vegetable oil (for frying)
Sesame oil (optional to season)
Soya sauce(optional to season)
Nanami togarashi (Japanese seven spices) or a mix of any of the following - salt, pepper, paprika, sesame seeds (black or white), bits of nori seaweed.

Garlic Fried Rice

1. Heat the vegetable oil on medium to high heat in a heavy based saucepan and add the grated garlic.
2. Fry the garlic for a minute or less (do not brown)
3. Add the cooked rice and mix with the garlic for about 1 minute.
4. Drizzle a little sesame oil over the rice and stir. 
5. Pour a little soya sauce evenly over the rice and stir quickly. Then take off the heat.

Fried Egg
1. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan on medium to high heat. 
2. Crack in the egg and fry until the white is cooked but the yolk is still soft. 
2. Toss the rice on a warm plate and place the fried egg on top. 
9. Sprinkle the egg with nanami togarashi or any of the alternative spices listed in the ingredients above.
