20 minutes

Serves 4 people


  • 250g long grain rice
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 120g frozen peas
  • 4 Free Range Ethical Eggs, beaten
  • 2 spring onions, sliced


  1. First, boil the rice by following the instructions on your chosen rice packet.
  2. Spread the rice out on a large plate, allowing it to dry a little.
  3. In a large wok, heat the vegetable oil on a high heat. Tip – drop an onion in to check it sizzles first, then add all the onions and fry for around 5 minutes, until softened.
  4. Add the peas to a saucepan and cover with boiling water. Cook for 3 minutes, until tender, then drain.
  5. When the onion is slightly browned, add the rice and peas and stir together. Fry for around 3 minutes, then move the onion, rice and peas to the side of the pan.
  6. Add a splash of extra oil, followed by the beaten eggs.
  7. Once the eggs begin to cook, mix the eggs, onion, rice and peas together and fry until the egg is cooked to your liking.
  8. Serve the rice topped with the sliced spring onions. For a spicy kick, why not drizzle with your favourite sweet chilli sauce? This is one of our favourite fakeaways that truly gives the takeaway version a run for its money!
