Super fast food - very frugal fried rice

When hungry, and wanting more than oat meal, I cook a fried rice. Just heat 1 table spoon cooking/olive oil in a pan, fry quickly half sliced onion, and two cloves chopped garlic. Add 1/2 cup cooked rice. Stir. Add a bunch of cut bak choy. Stir. Add salt, pepper, hot sauce and soy sauce to taste. Serve hot. I eat mine with a (half) boiled egg.  Hunger satisfied, nutrient needs met.

  1. What do you do with the other half of the egg? I would probably eat it while the rest was cooking. Sometimes I'm lazy and just stir in an egg at the last minute and let it cook with the rice, it gives a creamy texture.

  2. Ooh dear that should read half-boiled egg ... and I thought I was being careful not to confuse. I love egg too much, even one can be not enough Ida ;) Yes, I used to do that, stir egg right into the pan with the rice but my son does not like creamy fried rice - and I end up liking his style.So all is good with his way.

  3. Sounds good...will have to try that and add to my simple-to-do cooking lists.
