2 tbsp water
4 eggs
Sea salt and cracked pepper
4 large kale leaves
¼ cup roasted sesame seeds
Torn coriander and chopped chilli to serve


1. Dice spring onions and chilli and saute in a pan with crushed garlic until spring onions are soft.

2. Chop broccoli into small pieces and add to the pan with cooked rice, tamari and water.

3. Cover with lid for 1 minute until broccoli is bright green.

4. Add the broccoli, along with chopped kale with stems removed, to the rice.
