Tammy's Egg fried rice
Origionating from China, the dish consists of steamed rice which is then stir fried in a wok. Other ingrediants are often added such as vegetables and meat. Rice dishes are found all throughout china, especially in the South, where rice is the staple grain. As this is a more westernised version I have added ginger, onion and carrots, ingrediants which wouldn't be found in traditional chinese fried rice.

Pour the rice into a saucepan and add the water, place on the hob on a medium heat. Add the vegetable stock cube.
Leave to simmer for 10 minutes and cover with foil. Remove from heat when all of the stock is absorbed.
Prepare the vegetables; finely dice the onion, carrots and ginger.
Add the vegetable oil to the wok and place on a high heat. Add the onion, carrots and ginger. Stir continuously for 2 minutes.
Add the rice and continue to stir for another 2 minutes. Then add the egg and quickly stir. The egg should turn opaque, add the soy sauce and stir.
Take off of the hob and wait 2 minutes before serving the rice.
Using pre-cooked rice would be more efficient. Alternitively using day old rice would add to the texture.
Adding meat would provide more flavour and colour.
