Left over rice recipe – recept ook in NL

This is something easy we make, when we cooked too much rice for dinner. For example when we made this curry. Depending on how much you’ve left, you can eat it as snack or for lunch or dinner.


Voor 2 personen:
overgebleven gekookte rijst (bijv. 200 gram)
2 eieren
zout (hoeveelheid naar smaak)
3 teentjes knoflook (of naar eigen smaak aanpassen)
Italiaanse kruiden (hoeveelheid naar smaak)
kaas (hoeveelheid en rijpheid naar smaak – wij gebruiken zeer gerijpte of oude 30+ kaas)

  1. Rasp de kaas. Warm de olijfolie goed op in een koekenpan. ‘Frituur’ de knoflook hierin.
  2. Zodra de knoflook een klein beetje bruin wordt, doe je de gekookte rijst erbij. Even bakken, totdat de rijst ook goed warm is.
  3. Breek 2 eieren boven de pan (op de rijst) en roer deze er goed doorheen.
  4. Zodra de eieren gebakken zijn, de geraspte kaas erdoorheen roeren en laten smelten.
  5. Daarna de kruiden en evt. zout toevoegen en het is klaar 🙂

For 2 people:
Left over cooked rice (e.g. 200 grams)
2 eggs
salt (amount depends on your own taste)
3 cloves of garlic (or change the amount to your own taste)
Italian herbs (amount depends on your own taste)
olive oil
cheese (amount and maturity of the cheese depends on your own taste – we use very ripened cheese with less fat)

  1. Grate the cheese. Heat up the olive oil in a frying pan. Fry the garlic in here.
  2. As soon as the garlic starts to become brown, you add the cooked rice. Fry it till the rice is heatened up well, too.
  3. Break 2 eggs above the pan (so it falls on the rice) and stir them well through the rice.
  4. When the eggs are fried, you stir the grated cheese in it and let it melt.
  5. Then you can add the herbs and salt and it’s done 🙂

    1. That sounds interesting and tasty for breakfast (it’s common around here to eat slices of bread or yoghurt or oatmeal), although I think I would prefer that for lunch (I secretly would want to eat dinner dishes all day long lol).

      Have you been able to try this out? I hope it turned out well.
