Lactose and Gluten Free Easy Fried Rice
1 cup long grain white rice
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup gluten free diced bacon or ham
1/2 white onion, diced or you can use a shallot.
1 carrot peeled and grated
1/2 cup frozen veggies or you can use the fresh veggies you have in the house. I add spring onion, capsicum, bean shoots and bok choy.
1 tablespoon of gluten free soy sauce
1 clove of garlic, crushed or alternatively use 1 teaspoon of garlic powder or minced garlic.
Optional: Bean shoots, capsicum, bok choy, spring onions.
1. Cook the rice in a large saucepan of boiling water for 12 minutes or until tender. Drain and leave to cool.
2. Lightly beat eggs in a bowl with a whisk or fork. Heat oil in a non stick wok or fry pan over medium heat. Add eggs. Swirl over base to form an omelette. Cook for 2 minutes, turn over and cook the other side for two minutes until set. Transfer to a chopping board. Set aside to cool slightly. Cut into short strips.
3. Add bacon/ham and onion to wok or fry pan. Cook for 3 minutes until light golden.
4. Add carrot and bok choy and capsicum (if your using these) and stir fry for a minute.
5. Add frozen veggies, rice and garlic. Cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes.
6. Add egg, bok choy leaves, bean shoots, spring onions and soy sauce. Stir until heated through. Add more garlic and soy if needed.

I'm lactose intolerant and gluten sensitive. I wanted to create food that my whole family could eat, not just me, that is lactose and gluten free. I'm sharing this as it's easy, quick, tasty and child friendly.
