Ingredients
  

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ cup cooked rice, cold
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup ketsup
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • ½ cup shredded cooked chicken (2.5 ounces)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk

Instructions
 

  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in saute pan or wok over medium heat. Add rice and onions and saute until onion is translucent (4-5 minutes).
  • Add ketchup and soy sauce. Cook until ketchup begins to caramelize.
  • Add chicken and cook just until warmed through. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Coat pan with cooking spray.
  • Beat eggs with milk in a small bowl until well combined. Pour into the saute pan and allow it to spread over the bottom of the pan. Cover and allow eggs to cook undisturbed until set (4-5 minutes).
  • Remove cover and arrange rice chicken mixture on one side of the omelette. Fold over and slide onto the plate.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Hack: Store leftover omelette in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or skillet for 1-2 minutes, just until warmed through.
  • Hack: As with all fried rice, cold leftover rice gives the best results.
  • Hack: If using raw chicken, cut into 1” cubes and allow 3-5 minutes to cook (until all pink is gone).
  • Hack: Although chicken is traditional in this dish, use whatever leftover protein you have on hand!

Although ketchup is considered an American obsession, it originated in Asia as a thin sauce made from fermented fish!

Use any leftover rice for this dish, such as baked rice pilaf or easy vegetable rice!

3 Egg Omelette with Asparagus

 

3 eggs

1 tbsp milk

½ serving of Roasted Asparagus with Pine Nuts (10-12 pencil stalks)

3 tbsp smoked Gouda, shredded

 

Preheat 8” saute pan on the stovetop over medium heat.

Crack eggs in a deep bowl. Add milk and whisk with a fork until well blended.

Coat pan with cooking spray and pour eggs carefully into the pan, covering the bottom of the pan evenly. Allow to cook undisturbed until eggs are set. If a “harder” cooked omelette is desired, gently flip it when it’s cooked enough to be manageable.

Heat asparagus in the microwave just until warm, 20-30 seconds. Place in a single layer on half of the omelette, sprinkle with Gouda and fold the omelet in half to cover.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
