  6. Serve eggs over rice. Sprinkle with shallots and chilli. 

Tips

  • Packaged fresh vegetable stir-fry mixes are available from the fresh food section in major supermarkets. If preferred, use a frozen stir-fry mix or 200g mixed chopped fresh vegetables of your choice eg cabbage, carrot and capsicum. 
  • Microwave rice can be replaced 1½ cups cooked brown rice. 
  • For a fresh side, serve with sliced fresh cucumber and tomato wedges  
  • Check labels on Thai chilli jam and choose the brand lowest in sodium.
