Egg Fried Rice with Greens

Delicious egg fried rice with charred greens – perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

  • Cook up some basmati rice – drain and set aside.
  • Crush up some garlic, finely chop some chilli, and grate up some ginger. Finely slice up some spring onion or onion.
  • Rinse and slice up some leafy greens - Terra Madre pak choi or Meuse Farm swiss chard. Place a pan over a high heat with some oil. Char the greens until wilted, shifting occasionally. Remove from the pan and season with lemon juice and salt.
  • Crack some Georgiev eggs into a bowl and whisk up until smooth.
  • Return the pan to a medium heat – add a knob of Mooivallei butter, the garlic, chilli, onion and ginger. Fry until fragrant – then, add the egg. Scramble it up with your cooking utensil. When almost done, add in your drained rice and stir through until hot. Season to taste.
  • Dish up your egg fried rice, top with your Asian greens, and garnish with some chopped coriander  – serve with some of Bao Down’s Hot Sauce on the side and dig in!

 

CHEF’S TIP: 

When cooking the rice with the egg, allow it to get some good browning time on the base of the pan for some good caramelisation and increased flavour.
