Vegan Fried Rice with Omelette

I should probably call this dish un-fried-rice-with-pretend-omelette-and-only-vegetables-that-Sylvia-will-eat-at-the-moment but it's not very catchy...

It is funny because Sylvia wouldn't even taste it after I'd made a point of only putting her favourite veggies in there! Next time I'll add carrots and peas.

These omelettes are really delicious, especially served with fried mushrooms for breakfast. I think they make a great addition to this dish. They're made with silken tofu, chickpea (besan) flour and a few other things and have quite an eggy texture but in a good way. It's another one of those recipes, like the sausage rolls, where unlikely ingredients create a pleasant and unexpected result!

What are your favourite rice dishes?

Vegan Fried Rice with Omelette

2 cups basmati rice, cooked
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
knob of ginger, minced
2 cups chopped mushrooms
corn from 2 cobs of corn
1 vegan omelette, chopped up
2 tbsp tamari/soy sauce
salt to taste

In a large saucepan, fry garlic, ginger and vegetables in the oil. 

While veggies are cooking, make the omelette as per instructions and set aside to cool.

While on low heat, add the rice, tamari and salt and stir together. Add the omelette and give another quick stir, and you're done! 

Note: You may want to add a little more/less oil according to your taste, but don't skimp too much because the oil makes it taste more like fried rice!
