Chinese Vegetarian Fried Rice

A real typical Cantonese dish and it's a good way to get rid of leftover rice.

For 2-3 servings

Steamed Rice (2 bowls)
2 Eggs
1 Onion
1 tablespoon of ginger (optional)
Mixed Vegetables, chopped (Lettuces, carrot, peas or any other vegetables)
a pinch of Salt
1 tablespoon of Vegetable Oil
Soy sauce (optional)

1) Prepare the steamed rice (refer to 'Chinese style white rice')
2) Cut lettuces in thin slices, carrot and onion in small cubes (size of peas), prepare the peas and wash, set aside.
3) Add oil to heated pan, turn to medium heat, stir-fry the onion until tender.
4) Add ginger, all vegetables and salt to the onion, keep stir-frying.
5) Add rice and keep stir-frying to keep every pieces of rice separate as far as possible
6) Add beaten egg and mix well
7) Add some soy sauce and stir-fry well.
8) Serve while it's hot!

Extra Tips:
1) It's better to use rice that kept for overnight, so it's more dry for stir-frying and gives a better texture.
2) The fried rice could be mixed with anything, like shrimp, beef slice, chicken slice etc. Add after the onion and vegetables.
3) When adding meat, marinate with a pinch of salt, soy sauce, oil, corn flour 30 minutes ahead (if ingredients not available, only salt and oil is possible)
