This recipe came to me one day when I decided I wanted to use up some day old rice I had sitting in the fridge. It's a bit like a fried rice but with a Japanese flavor. It is good as a meal or just as an accompaniment with your favorite meat and veggies.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in wok or deep pan Add first 6 ingredients to the wok and stir for 2-3 minutes on a low heat (do not let it burn) Add mushrooms and bacon and sauté on medium heat for five minutes or till mushrooms are soft Add rice and stir over a medium heat for another five minutes Add extra 1/4 cup of soy sauce/water if the mixture is too dry or sticking.
  2. Crumble the nori into the rice mixture and stir till the nori is soft and the mixture is heated through.
  3. Remove from the heat and enjoy!
  4. Note: I've also added julienned veggies (carrots, snow peas and broccoli) to this recipe as well.
