Egg broccolini rice

All of us have days when we hate to enter the kitchen and I am not an exception. And one particular night, though I was deeply tempted to order food from outside, I resisted the urge and decided to come up with something simple yet filling.

A quick raid of the fridge revealed leftover rice, eggs and broccolini. ‘Necessity is indeed the mother of invention’ and I ended up preparing this simple fried rice with a splash and dash of the innumerable Asian sauces that I have in my pantry. Surprisingly, the dish turned out to be a good one; the proof for that came when my 4 year old gave me a hug and said; ‘Mama, that is deleeecious’.

Egg broccolini rice

Ingredients:

1. Long-grained rice – 2 cups (I used leftover rice, but make it fresh if you want to)
2. Eggs – 2 large, beaten well
3. Broccolini – 1 cup
4. Dark soy sauce – 2-3 tbsp
5. Fish sauce – a splash
6. Salt – to taste
7. Black pepper – to taste
8. Ginger – ½ tsp, grated
9. Vegetable oil – 1-2 tbsp

Method:

• Heat oil in a pan and add the beaten eggs. Scramble till half done.
• Add the broccolini and sauté on high heat. Add the grated ginger and seasonings.
