  • Olive oil for frying

Method

  1. Heat a large frying pan or wok with a glug of olive oil. Add the mixed vegetables and cook for 1 minute, then add the rice. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes more, then move the rice and vegetables to one side of the pan.
  2. Pour in the eggs and leave to set, then very softly scramble. Once the eggs are partly cooked but still runny, use a spatula to combine with the vegetables and rice, along with the soy sauce.
  3. Serve straightaway with an extra dash of soy sauce and lime wedges to squeeze over.
