This dish is often served for breakfast and is a spin on leftover white rice from the preceding meal/meals.  It is a fairly light dish that you’ll usually find served with eggs or even beef in the morning.  If you have some of the ingredients below, why not give it a try the next time you plan on a heavy breakfast or brunch before a fun-filled day of activities.


  • 1 – 2 tbsps of olive oil
  • 1 – 2 cloves of garlic
  • Cooked white rice
  • Soya sauce


Heat oil at a low to medium temperature.  Add a finely chopped glove of garlic and cook until it almost becomes golden brown.  It is important to not overcook/burn the garlic unless of course you enjoy the taste.  Depending on how much leftover rice you have, you also may want to add a bit more garlic.  Remember, this is garlic fried rice, so imagine how strong of a garlic taste you would like and adjust the quantity.  Once the garlic is ready, add a scoop or two of the leftover rice to the pan, and flatten out making sure there are no clumps.  Repeat until all the rice has been transferred.  If you find the rice is too dry, add a bit of water and mix.  Increase the heat to medium-high and stir occasionally making sure the chopped garlic is mixed in well.  Let the dish sit a bit and cook.   Just when you see the grains to firm a bit, add the soya sauce, mix, and then cut the heat.  Transfer to a dish and serve.
