  • 50 grams rice
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp gluten free soy sauce - aka tamari
  • 1 tsp sesame oil - don't leave this out!!! essential ingredient :)
  • Sprinkle of spring onion - optional

For special fried rice

  • Handful of raw/cooked meat - e.g. 3 prawns or half a chicken breast
  • Handful of raw/cooked veg - frozen peas & small cubes of cooked carrot is the traditional option but more ideas in the "special fried" section above


  • Start by cooking your rice as per the instructions on the packet.
    >Personal preference on how to cook rice: Boil a pan of water, add the rice, reduce to a simmer for around 7-10mins until soft.
  • Once cooked, drain the rice and run under cold water to stop it cooking. Set aside.
  • Beat your egg in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Add the gluten free soy sauce, sesame oil and spring onion to a frying pan. Heat the pan to a medium-high temperature and leave for 20 secs to allow to onion to soften.
  • If you're using raw meat/fish, add that to the pan and cook through.
    >I recommend chopping the meat/fish into small pieces!
  • Add the rice and any raw/cooked veg or cooked meat/fish you'd like to use to the pan.
    >Best to cut these into small chunks too!
  • Give it a good stir and cook for a few mins until it has warmed through.
  • Make a well in the middle of the frying pan. Add the beaten egg into the well.
  • Don’t stir - just leave it to cook slightly!! Once the edges start to cook (like my picture - or like an omlette!), stir the egg in the well until its cooked completely.
    >Don't mix in the rice at this stage but don't worry if a few bits get in the egg!
  • Once the egg is cooked, mix everything together, breaking up the egg with your spoon/spatula.
    >Don't worry about being delicate here, just go for it and get mixing!!!
  • Press the egg fried mix into the pan a little, so it gently "fries" the rice. You only need to do this for a few mins.
  • Taste and add more sesame oil or gluten free soy if you'd like to.
  • Enjoy!!!!
