Shiitake Mushroom Fried Rice
"Lunch; The perfect excuse to leave your study desk, and procrastinate in the kitchen. Today I made myself a shiitake mushroom fried rice, and topped it with a ridiculous amount of greenery and a runny egg. It was so good, that I cooked up another egg halfway into eating it and added it to my meal so I could prolong the inevitable moment of finishing it. // Shiitake Mushroom Fried Rice: I just soaked about a cup of dried shiitakes in some hot water for 30mins. Then in a pan I sautéed half an onion, some finely sliced organic silverbeet leaves and the mushrooms (without the water) in olive oil. Then I threw in some cooked organic brown rice, a splash of the leftover mushroom water and some soy sauce. Then I just topped it with a free range egg, a tonne of micro herbs from Mumma's garden and a torn up nori sheet."
