  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ginger
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil
  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 -1/2 Tablespoon Soy sauce dark
  • Pepper to Taste


  • Gather your ingredients
  • In a frying pan, add oil and turn the heat to high.
  • Add the onion and pepper, cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and ginger, reduce the heat to medium and cook for another 1-2 minutes (make sure not to burn the garlic)
  • Move onion/pepper mixture to side of pan and crack the eggs in the pan scrambling slightly, add pepper and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes until the egg is cooked.
  • Add the pre-cooked rice and butter, mix together
  • Return the heat back to high, constantly folding in the rice.

  • Cut and sprinkle the scallions on top.



When you pre-cook the rice, remove it prior to it being all the way done. This will prevent it from becoming mushy when you fry it. 
For food safety reasons rice should be laid flat on a cookie sheet to cool and placed in fridge within 1 hour of cooking.
