OmuRIce

Omelette + Rice = OmuRice

Ingredients:

  • Eggs (x 2)
  • Carrot (1 *very* small)
  • Asparagus (4 spears)
  • Mushrooms (1/8 cup)
  • Onion (1 small)
  • Shredded Parmesan (1/4 cup)
  • Cooked rice (1 cup)
  • Olive oil ( 1 1/2 tbsp)
  • Pieces of ham (bacon or other deli meat can be substituted)
  • Pepper and salt to taste

Directions:

  1. Dice the carrot, broccoli and onion and set aside separately.
  2. Crack 2 eggs and whisk until smooth. Season with a pinch of pepper and salt. Set aside in a separate bowl.
  3. Pour egg mixture into a large flat, round fry pan with 1/2 a tablespoon of olive oil to coat the pan. Try to make a nice round shape with the egg as it sets.
  4. Flip the pancake-like egg in the pan so that both sides are cooked *quite* well. Set aside on separate plate.

5. In a separate pan, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and then first the carrot, then the onion and finally the asparagus and mushrooms. Stir-fry until cooked through.

6. Add the rice and ham to the vegetables and stir-fry until golden-brown at edges.

Ham and rice added. NB: I used mixed grain rice - hence the colour. White rice works just as well and looks prettier but this rice is kind of healthier... >.>

7. Give a good stir for about another minute or two. Add salt and pepper to taste.

8. Place the egg pancake in a rounded bowl so that it lines it.

Careful, now...

Be sure to flatten the rice with a spatula so that it is tightly packed.
