A lovely fried rice dish and a great way to get extra vegetables into a meal.

250g basmati rice

125g frozen peas

2 tbsp sunflower oil

1 egg, beaten

100g finely diced chorizo

1 garlic clove, chopped

4 spring onions, sliced on an angle

1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped

Good pinch five spice powder

1-2 tsp soy sauce

200g frozen cooked prawns, thawed and rinsed

Cook the rice according to the instructions adding the peas in during the last 2 minutes.

Drain and set aside.

Heat half the oil in a wok or large pan.

Pour in the egg, swirl around and let it set.

Break it up vigorously using a spatula or chopsticks if you have them.

Set aside on a plate.

Wipe the pan with kitchen paper, then heat the remaining oil.

Toss in the meat, garlic, spring onions and pepper, and stir-fry until the pepper starts to soften.

Add the five-spice, rice, peas and soy sauce, then stir-fry for 5 minutes more stirring.

Finally add the egg and prawns, and stir-fry to heat through.
