This scrummy vegetarian dish is filled with delicious Asian flavours, and packed with nutritious veggies too.

Serves 2

Time: 25-30 mins

NUTRITION per serving

Approx. 650 calories & 22g protein


100g uncooked Brown Basmati rice (or you can use cooked leftover rice, about 1.5-2 cups)

25g roasted cashews

4 large eggs

2 tsp olive oil


1 bell pepper

1 large onion

1 medium carrot

2 large handfuls kale

4 spring onions

The Flavour:

2-3 large cloves of garlic

1 medium chilli

Thumb size piece of ginger

2-3 tbsp Hoisin sauce

2-3 tbsp soy Sauce

1 tbsp sesame oil


Put the rice on to cook, as per the packet instructions (this should be about 25 mins in boiing water)

Whilst the rice is cooking, slice and chop all of your veggies - with the carrot I like to use a peeler to make ribbons, its quicker to prep and cook.

Finely chop the garlic, ginger and chilli

Whisk the eggs

Add 1 tsp olive oil to the wok/large pan and heat on a medium heat

When the oil is hot add the egg mix, leave it to make an omlette or egg pancake

Remove from the pan and allow to cool on a chopping board

When the rice has only 10 mins cooking time left, add 1tsp olive oil to the wok and heat on a medium heat

Add the onions to the heated pan and cook until they have softened (about 5-8 mins)

Whilst the onions cook you can chop up the egg omlette into chunks

Add the garlic ginger and chili to the pan and cook for another few minutes

The rice should now be cooked, drain and rinse (if needed) and set to one side

Add the seasame oil to the pan of onion mix, and up the heat a little

Throw in all your veggies and cook on a high heat for a few minutes (adjust time to suit your preference for crunchy or softer veggies)

Whilst the veggies are cooking throw 1-2 tbsp of soy sauce into the pan and stir

Once cooked reduce the heat and add the rice, egg, hoisin sauce and 1-2tbsp of soy sauce, stir well

Serve topped with the roasted cashews and season with a good pinch of black pepper


Mix up the veggies and use whatever you have in the fridge

Add extra chilli if you liek it hot

Add some leftover chicken or fish for an extra protien boost
