  1. Heat frying pan on medium heat, add extra-virgin olive oil to coat pan, then add brown rice, shallot, zucchini and peas and cook for 3 mins, tossing frequently. Remove from pan, cover and set aside. Wipe pan clean, then add sesame oil to coat, followed by eggs to make omelette. Cook for 2 mins one side, flip and cook a further 1–2 mins.
