  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil, plus 1 tablespoon extra
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1medium white onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped ginger
  • 3 cups sliced shiitake or brown mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • pinch of salt and cracked black pepper


You will need to cook about 1 1/2 cups of rice for this recipe. Make sure the rice is cooled before you cook it in the fried rice.

Heat 1 tablespoon of peanut oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium heat. Add the eggs and let cook, without stirring for about 15 seconds. Using a spatula, fold eggs over in half. Scramble lightly for about 1 minute or until just set; remove from wok and set aside. Wipe wok clean.

Heat the remaining oil in the same wok. Add onion, garlic, ginger and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until onion is softened. Stir in sherry and cook for 1 minute.

Add remaining ingredients and stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes or until rice is hot. Add egg and stir-fry into the rice, ensuring the egg is broken-up into smaller pieces.
