This is a ‘throw it all together’ one pot meal that my family are ga-ga for. It’s pretty much made with all the stuff you have in the freezer on any given Sunday and it’s yummy. That’s all we really need to know.
The nuts add texture and crunch but if you’re not nut-friendly, leave them out. Or if you don’t like cashews (and honestly, that’s nobody, right?) you can substitute peanuts or even slivered almonds.
I often do 1 cup Basmati and 1 cup of brown rice for this dish. It adds a nice chewiness that the kids tolerate. I tried all-brown rice once and that was a disaster. My kids are quite picky about ‘textures’ of food. Shame, because it tasted really, really good.
You can put any vegies you like into this rice – diced or shredded carrot is fab, diced capsicum likewise. Broccoli or brussel sprouts might be interesting.
Simple eggy fried rice with cashews
3 Tbs oyster sauce
1 Tbs sesame oil (use any kind of stir-fry oil if you don’t have sesame)
1 large onion, finely diced
500 gm pork mince
2 cups cooked Basmati rice
2 cups frozen peas, cooked
2 cups frozen corn, cooked
Lightly beat the eggs in a small bowl, add the oyster sauce and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Heat half the oil in a large frypan (I use my Le Creuset French oven) and once hot, pour half of the egg into the pan. Cook one side then flip and cook the other. Remove from the pan and do the same with the remaining egg. Set aside.
Put the remaining oil into the pan and add the onion, fry over medium heat until just translucent. Add the pork mince and fry until cooked.
Add the cooked rice to the pan and mix well. Then add the cooked egg, peas and corn and mix everything together well. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve while hot.
