Fast fried rice
This one pan fried rice uses up your vegetables and rice easily and makes a fabulous take away in minutes.

2 tsp vegetable oil

1 egg, beaten

2 rashers bacon, chopped

175g mushrooms, sliced

200g frozen peas

1 garlic clove, crushed

198g tinned sweetcorn with peppers, drained

Small knob of fresh root ginger, grated

2 tsp dark soy sauce, plus extra to serve

1 tsp sugar

250g cooked basmati rice

1 chili, deseeded and finely sliced (optional as garnish)

Fresh coriander leaves, roughly torn as garnish, optional

Cook the rice according to the instructions, drain and set aside.

Heat the oil in a frying pan, then tip in the egg.

Leave to set for 1 minute, swirling every now and again, then tip it out using a spatula and finely slice. Set aside.

Add the bacon and mushrooms to the pan and fry until golden, about 3 minutes.

Add the peas, garlic ginger and sweetcorn with peppers, then cook for 2 minutes.

Mix the soy sauce and sugar together.

Turn up the heat, add the cooked rice to the pan, heat through, then splash in the sweet soy sauce.

Stir through the egg and serve straight away, with more soy sauce if desired and top with a chilli slice and coriander leaf if using for garnish.
