Cantonese style fried rice recipe


  • 1/2 cup of rice (3/4 cup if you’re hungry)
  • 1 teaspoon of olive/canola oil
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 handful of sweet peas (canned or freeze dried)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 stalk of green onion, minced
  • Pepper

For the non-vegan version, you can add:

  • 1 handful of bacon bits (or 1 slice of ham, diced)
  • OR 1 can of shrimps

Serves: 2


1- Cook the rice following the instructions on the package (usually, for white rice, it will be 13 min in double the volume of water).

2 – Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat. When the pan is hot, add in the onion and cook for 2 minutes or until translucent.

3- Add in the diced carrot and cook for another 5 minutes.

4- Add in the cooked rice and the (cooked if necessary) sweet peas and let fry for 1 minute without moving it.

*Note for non-vegetarian option: Add in the bacon or shrimps along with the rice

5- Add in the beaten egg and soy sauce and stir for about 2 minutes or until the egg is cooked.

6- Serve and, if you feel fancy, you can sprinkle some minced green onion for a green touch!
