  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely sliced
  • 1 cup kale, finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded meat, such as chicken, turkey
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 cups pre-cooked rice, such as jasmine, basmati etc.


  1. Heat a large pan or wok over medium high heat and add the oil.

  2. Once the oil is hot, crack one of the eggs into the pan and cook to desired doneness.

  3. Remove the egg from the pan and reserve to top the fried rice with later.

  4. Add the onions and carrots to the pan and saute for 2 minute.

  5. Add in the garlic and stir till fragrant, about 1 minute.

  6. Add in 3/4 of the kale, reserving the rest as a garnish for the fried rice, and the meat. Toss to combine.

  7. Pour in the soy sauce and honey, and stir well to combine.

  8. Crack the second egg directly into the hot pan. Using a spatula, stir the egg to scramble it in the pan and mix it in with the ingredients.

  9. Add in the rice, and stir very well to coat all the rice with the soy/veggie/meat mixture.

  10. Spread the rice into a single layer and allow to toast on the bottom for a couple of mins.

  11. Mix the rice, and again, spread it out into a thin layer to toast once more, for another couple of mins.

  12. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.

  13. Divide the fried rice in half, and spoon half into the serving dish. Top the fried rice with the egg and a sprinkling of finely chopped kale.

  14. Enjoy immediately or allow to cool, store in airtight containers as awesome meal prep ideas!
