  • 150g Essential Easy Cook Long Grain Rice
  • 1 Essential Pointed Spring Cabbage
  • 2 Essential Free Range White Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp medium curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 x 150g packs Essential Cooked King Prawns
  • 150g Essential Beansprouts
  • 400g can Essential Cut Green Beans in Water, drained
  • 4 salad onions, shredded, green and white parts separated

  1. Cook the rice according to pack instructions. Meanwhile, thinly shred the cabbage. Beat the eggs and set aside. When cooked, drain the rice and leave to steam dry for 5 minutes.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok over a medium heat. Add the curry powder and cumin and sizzle for 30 seconds. Add the cabbage and stir fry over a high heat for 4 minutes, then tip onto a plate. Heat 2 tsp more oil, then add the prawns, beansprouts, beans and whites of the onions. Stir fry for 2 minutes, until the prawns are pink and opaque.

  3. Stir in the rice and cabbage, then push everything to 1 side of the pan. Heat 1 tsp oil on the other side, then sizzle the eggs to set, before stirring into the rice. Add the soy sauce, stir fry for 1 minute, then serve with the rest of the salad onions and more soy.

Cook’s tip

Using dried rice makes this recipe more economical than ready-cooked pouches. Long grain rice is a good choice instead of basmati, as it holds its shape well. Wholegrain rice will up the fibre content.
