One Skillet Big Green Fried Rice With Pork
6 strips thick cut bacon, chopped, cooked
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
4 green onions, white and green parts, chopped
1 cup asparagus, sliced 1/4 inch segments
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups cold cooked brown rice
2 cups kale, trimmed and ribs removed, chopped well
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
Sesame–chilli oil and zest of 1 lemon, to serve (optional)
Heat 1 tbsp of the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over a high heat. Add the green onion and asparagus and cook for 3–4 minutes, until the onion softens.
Stir in the garlic and ginger. Wait 30 seconds, then add the rice and stir to separate the grains. Cook for about 3 minutes, until the rice is hot, then stir in the kale.
Shift the rice and vegetables to the sides of the skillet and add 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil to pan. Add the eggs and push it around until just set. Break up eggs with a spatula.
Drizzle in the soy sauce and stir-fry everything together until well combined, for about 30 seconds.
Optional to serve drizzled with sesame–chilli oil and lemon zest.
