  • 1 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 cups cooked and refrigerated rice
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 egg
  • green onions if desired


  • Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the cold rice to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5-7 minutes until rice is starting to get crispy.
  • Add the soy sauce and stir to combine.
  • Push some of the rice away from the center of the pan. Crack one egg into the center of the pan. With your spoon (or stirring implement), break apart the egg, and then stir into the rice to combine and coat the rice.
  • Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until egg is cooked.
  • Plate and top with green onions or other herb.


This recipe is easily customizable! If you'd like, add veggies or cooked meats. If doing so, add before you add the soy sauce to the pan.
