• 4 Respectful eggs
• 3 tablespoons peanut, vegetable or olive oil
• 1 small onion, diced
• 2 large handfuls mixed vegetables, chopped
• 1 spring onion, chopped
• A pinch of salt
• 4 cups cooked rice
• ½ teaspoon five-spice powder
• 2 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
• A dash of white pepper
• 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

Preparation time

20 minutes




Into a small bowl, crack the eggs and beat together.

To a large wok or frying pan over a medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of your chosen cooking oil. Once the pan has heated up, add the eggs and scramble, then transfer them to a dish.

Add the remaining cooking oil to the wok and place onto a high heat. Add the onion and fry for 1-2 minutes, followed by the mixed vegetables and half of the spring onion. Season with a pinch of salt and stir.

Add the cooked rice and fry until heated through, breaking apart any large clumps.

Add the five-spice powder, Worcestershire sauce, white pepper, sesame oil and eggs, then stir to mix.

Scatter over the remaining spring onions, serve and enjoy.
