  • Large skillet pan
  • Small frypan (or wait until the end to cook your egg in the large skillet pan)


  • 2 tablespoon basmati rice raw
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil extra virgin
  • 1 eggs free range (well cooked for pregnancy)
  • 1 stalk spring onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger fresh, grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 red chilli seeds removed, diced
  • 1/2 carrot diced
  • 100 g beef mince
  • 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce, can use gluten free if necessary
  • 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 bunch asparagus tough stalks removed, sliced into 2cm segments
  • 25 g snowpeas ends removed, sliced in half
  • 1 mushroom cup (or a few buttons) roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 bunch fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped


  • Cook basmati rice according to packet instructions.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet pan over a medium-high heat.
  • Add in the spring onions, garlic, ginger and chilli and sauté for 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add in the carrot and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Add in the beef mince and cook for about 5 minutes, until meat is browned. Use a spatula to break up the mince in the pan.
    Once browned, add in the tamari, apple cider vinegar, asparagus, snow peas and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes, or until veggies are cooked, but still tender.
  • Add in the Basmati rice and stir through. Season with pepper and stir through coriander leaves.
  • As the basmati is softening, crack the egg into a small frypan and cook sunny side up for about 3 minutes (if you're pregnant ensure your egg is well cooked).
  • When the rice is soft, plate the larb, and top it with the fried egg to serve.
