Black Bean, Egg, and Mushroom Fried Rice


This fried rice is healthy, and makes for a quick week night dinner; you could make it more substantial by throwing in more vegetables into the pot – baby corn, peppers, carrots, and beans work very well here. If you’re looking for a variation to your regular rice dish, this is a pretty good way of upping the ante.

What you will need

1 cup rice (I used medium-grain)

350 grams mixed mushrooms, quartered

4 spring onions, finely chopped (retain the green parts for garnish)

5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1" tablespoons piece of ginger, julienned

1 green chilli, finely chopped

1 1/2 tablespoons light soy

1 1/2 tablespoons black bean paste

1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 teaspoon sesame oil

4 eggs (plus more for fried eggs on top)

Freshly ground black pepper

Salt, to taste
