sugar snap peas
black sesame seeds(ContainsSesame)
water (for the rice)
soy sauce (or gluten free tamari soy sauce)(ContainsSoy, Gluten)
water (for the sauce)
In a medium saucepan, add the water (for the rice) and bring to the boil. Add the basmati rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
While the rice is cooking, finely grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Finely grate the ginger. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, brown sugar and water (for the sauce). In a medium bowl, add the pork mince and 1/2 the ginger-soy mixture (you'll use the remaining mixture as a sauce). Mix well to combine.
Cut the carrot (unpeeled) into thin matchsticks (or grate if you'd prefer!) Thinly slice the sugar snap peas into matchsticks (or trim and leave whole if you'd prefer!). Thinly slice the cucumber into half-moons. TIP: We've provided alternative options to prep your veggies to save time
In a medium frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the carrot and sugar snap peas and cook until just softened, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Increase the heat to high, then add the pork mince and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until browned and cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Add the remaining ginger-soy mixture and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover to keep warm.
Wash the frying pan, then return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Sprinkle a pinch of chilli flakes (if using) into the oil, then crack in the eggs and fry until the yolks are cooked to your liking, 4-5 minutes. TIP: This will give a soft yolk, fry for 6-7 minutes to get a hard yolk. Just before serving, stir the black sesame seeds through the cooked rice.
Divide the black sesame rice between bowls and top with the pork, carrot, snow peas and cucumber. TIP: You can toss everything together to serve if you'd prefer! Top with the fried eggs and a pinch of chilli flakes (if using). Serve the garlic aioli on the side.
