  • 1 cup cooked jasmine rice
  • 2 tablespoons frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons chopped red pepper
  • 1/2 stalk of green onion, sliced
  • small pinch of mung bean sprouts
  • small pinch of shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder


  • Place the rice into a large mug. Lay the peas, red pepper, green onion, mung bean sprouts and cabbage on top. Cover the mug with cling film. Using a knife, puncture one or two small holes through the film. This step is important! You don't want to scald yourself. Microwave on high for 1 minute 15 seconds.
  • In the meantime, beat the egg and mix in the seasonings (soy sauce, sesame oil, onion powder and five-spice powder). Pour the egg mixture into the mug, and stir with the vegetables and rice
  • Cover the mug with cling film again, and microwave for 1 minute 15 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds. Take the mug out of the microwave, and give everything a good stir. Let the fried rice stand for a minute to finish cooking. Use a fork to fluff up the rice and serve.
