3 cups cooked long grain brown rice*

Directions:
1. Peel onions and garlic and fry in an oiled pan. Add cooked rice.* Remove from pan.
2. Beat egg and add pepper, soy sauce and mushroom seasoning.
3. When the egg is almost cooked, stir in the cooked rice. Add in preserved olives and mix well!

Note: **If over night rice is too dry, add water while cooking.
**Overnight rice cooks better
**I allowed the rice to be a little "burnt" on the pan; just like bibimbup on stonebowl
