A sugar-free, gluten-free fried rice you must try

This is a fascinating take on a classic recipe loved around the world. This ‘clean’ version of fried rice is made using millet, an ancient grain which is gluten-free and high in magnesium which can support heart health and lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes.

It also contains fresh chillis which are high in Vitamin C, A and E and eggs which are high in protein, B Vitamins, Selenium and Calcium. This dish is just the thing to boost your immune system over the winter months.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup cooked millet
2 shallot stems chopped finely
2 carrots peeled and chopped finely
2 celery stems chopped finely
1 small onion chopped finely
2 small red chillis chopped finely
1/4 cup olive oil
2 eggs
3 pieces nitrate free bacon chopped finely
Dash of Himalayan salt

Method:

1. In a small saucepan add the millet on a medium setting with 2-3 cups on water to cook for approximately 15 mins.
 Strain through the excess water and place the cooked millet in a bowl whilst you prepare other ingredients.

2. In a small pan add the carrot, onion, chilli and celery and cook on low for 10-15 mins. Once cooked add the vegetables, salt and shallots to the cooked millet and add the olive oil and stir through.

3. In a small bowl crack the eggs and whisk for 30 seconds and then place in a fry pan with the bacon to cook

4. 
Once the bacon and eggs are cooked, place in with the millet and vegetables and stir through.
