Quails eggs with fried rice and cumin cabbage

When you have a veg box once a week you also have the end of the week ... and whatever veg is left.  This week there was white cabbage, and also some quails eggs we bought - just before our bantams had a laying spree - so we have eaten our girls' eggs already.  This is odd, because we were really looking forward to the quails eggs - they are delicious.

Some cooked rice, some frozen peas and a few spices ... ta dah!

Coconut oil
Fried onions
Crushed garlic
Cooked rice
Cumin seeds
Quails eggs
Frozen peas

1.  Plonk some coconut oil in a frying pan and chuck in a handful of fried onions, stir, add crushed garlic.
2.  Add the fried rice, and turn around until every grain of rice is lightly coated.
3.  Add chopped veg - courgette in this case, and a splash of water to keep it moist.
4.  About now ... tiny spoon of coconut oil in a pan - add shredded cabbage, tsp cumin seeds and  1/2 tsp turmeric.  Stir.  Add a half cup of water, lid on, turn the heat down.
5.  Put qualis eggs into a pan with cold water, bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute.  Turn off the heat.
6.  Add peas to the rice mixture ... stir in.
7.  Wait 3 minutes and serve ....

Yum - if you have cooked rice this is on the table in under 20 minutes.  (You can also buy cooked rice in microwavable trays - this can be used from the tray, without microwaving - from 2.)
