Bok Choi Fried Rice



One of my go to meals when in a hurry is fried rice in no time at all a simple one pot meal can be whipped up with protein, vegetables and carbohydrate. A nice trick I learnt from my sister in law is to add chopped bok choi to fried rice. I would say baby is a little milder than the bigger variety that can be a tad bitter at times.  So here's the recipe :-)



Ingredients:

  • a pinch of dried shrimp
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Chinese 5 spice
  • 1/2 a red onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic chopped
  • one bunch of regular bok choi chopped finely 
  • 5 mushrooms sliced
  • a handful of frozen shrimp defrosted
  • a handful of frozen peas
  • 2 eggs
  • one tablespoon of oyster sauce
  • one tablespoon of soy sauce
  • one cup of rice cooked 
Method:

  1. heat a little canola oil and saute the onions and garlic for 3 minutes
  2. add the 5 spice with the bok choi, mushrooms and shrimp and saute for another 5-10 minutes until the bok choi is reduced down, 
  3. then scramble the eggs into the mixture you may need a little more oil and water to stop it sticking
  4. add the frozen peas, the oyster sauce and soy sauce stir fry a couple of minutes
  5. add the cooked rice 
  6. and serve 






What do you like to add to your fried rice?

  1. Hi Rebecca, thanks for this post: reminds me to look in my pantry and maybe cook some rice. I am not a big rice eater, so I need to be reminded to make rice meal. My son loves fried rice a lot, I am making it for him tomorrow! :)
