University Life: Easy Leftover Recipe

Okay, today's post is going to be something a little bit different! You know my blog is completely filled with beauty products but another passion of mine that I should probably include in my blog more often is food! I love food, I love cooking food and I love eating food (I don't like cleaning up after cooking though...). So, today I thought I would share with you a "recipe" that is so easy, filling and use up all those leftovers. The reason I said "recipe" is because it's not really a recipe. It's more to do with the fact that you just chuck everything in the fridge in the pan... Also, I have to mention that I totally stole this recipe off of my housemate, every times she cooks, I get a bad case of food envy and copy her.

Easy Student Recipe, Chorizo Egg Fried Rice

Okay, in the picture above, I really went all out on the whole presentation front. Normally I just put it in a bowl and eat it. Yes, this "recipe" is pretty much egg fried rice... The first thing you do is cook the rice. Make sure they are not too stodgy by boiling 75g of rice per person for 11 minutes. By doing this first, the rice will be done when you need it.

For this recipe, I'm using Pancetta, Chorizo, mushrooms, tomatoes and egg. However, you can put whatever you like in it. I personally enjoy bacons, chorizo, mushrooms, egg and fine beans combo. Although, it can also be enjoyed without eggs. For preparation slice everything, the thinner the faster they will cook. 

1. Whisk egg with a bit of chicken stock (if you don't have chicken stock, you can use salt and pepper instead).
2. Add oil to the pan (preferably use a non-stick pan). Don't add too much oil because chorizo will provide some anyway. Put the heat on medium.
3. Once the pan is hot add the chorizo.
4. After the chorizo is looking a little bit crispy, add the pancetta and stir until they are cooked.
5. Add the mushrooms, they will turn brown once they are cooked.
6. Then add the egg (you can do this in a separate pan but this way saves you washing up).
7. Separate the egg into small pieces with spatula, until they are cooked.
8. Add the chopped tomatoes (you can add this before the egg if you prefer them to be well cooked).
9. Finally, add the rice and stir it thoroughly. It's ready to served!

This recipe should take approximately 20 minutes to make. I practically live on this at uni because it's such a wholesome meal.
