Why is it so easy? Because I cheat. I use the leftovers of my daughter’s favourite spinach omelette and microwaved rice. Ok, it’s not traditional, but it’s simple and delicious. (And if there happens to be any chorizo in the omelette I just pretend that it’s Chinese sausage – Lap Cheong – one of my favourite things on the planet!) You can of course make it with ordinary rice but I recommend wholegrain because it’s healthier and has a lovely nutty taste.
