Well I'm still plugging away at loosing those extra pounds I gained at Christmas! I managed to gain 4lbs over the festive period, had a really good 100% on plan week & lost 2.5lbs, then I wasn't very good last week & managed to gain another pound. So this week I need to be on the ball again, so time to share another recipe. We really do love our rice round here, its probably part of our main meal 2-3 times per week, good job its free food on the slimming world plan.
My husbands favourite food from the Chinese is chicken fried rice, so I often make my own version without all the fat for him, or we have egg fried rice along with another dish. So at the weekend we had a gammon joint for dinner, Daniel (3.5) fund it a little tough & didn't eat much of the meat so I was reluctant to serve it cold with slimming world chips on Monday. I decided to turn it in to gammon fried rice, but you could use whatever you have left over, we have used ham, chicken, & turkey in the past, same with the veg use what you have in.
Left Over Fried Rice - Slimming World Style
Ingredients:Left over meat trimmed of all visible fat diced
1-3 spring onions or 1 medium onion diced
1 pepper diced (or equivalent of frozen pepper)
6 mushrooms sliced or 1 tin of mushrooms drained
100g frozen peas defrosted or cooked & drained
250g (dry weight) of cooked white rice cooked with a veg or chicken stock cube
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil (optional adds 2 syns, but tastes more authentic)
Heat the sesame oil in pan or spray with fry light. Cook onion until soft, add pepper, mushrooms, peas & diced meat & stir fry for 2-3mins. Crack the eggs in to a jug, whisk & season. I then scramble them in the microwave, as when I have done it in the same pan it sticks & burns. Add the cooked rice, soy sauce & egg (broken up small), stir fry until heated through & serve.
Everyone loved this meal, especially Daniel who said it was delicious & we needed to eat it everyday! Clean bowls all round....
