- Pour rice into a medium sized saucepan. Add 2 cups of water and bring to the boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed. Stir occasionally.

- Add onion and garlic to pan, stir-fry for 2 minutes or until the onion becomes soft. Add remaining vegetables and stir-fry for a further 3-4 minutes.
- Add the rice and soy sauce and stir through for 2-3 minutes, until vegetables are tender and crisp. Serve fried rice with sliced omelette.
