Chinese Egg Fried Rice

This rice recipe might not have impressed me so much hadn't it been for a Chinese cuisine presentation, where I tasted it. Besides the fact that it's prepared very quickly, it can be either a meal as such or an interesting garnish for any other food. Rice matches perfectly all the other ingredients and you'll definitely impress a lot of people with this recipe. You can recycle left-over rice from other dishes or cook new rice.

There are many variants and combinations in the Chinese cuisine. I've tasted this one, tried making it and now I'm showing it to you as tested by me. Instead of cabbage, you can put beans, but I would still go for the cabbage, it gives the rice a sweet taste.
