Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Tip the rice into a large bowl and cover with cold water. Set aside to soak.

  • 2.

    While the rice soaks, pour 2 tbsp brown rice vinegar and 1 tbsp Worcester sauce into a bowl. Stir in 1 tsp sugar with a pinch of salt till they start to dissolve. Peel and grate in the ginger and garlic. Give it a good stir to mix.

  • 3.

    Trim and peel the carrot. Finely slice it into batons. Trim the root and top 3cm off the leek. Slice a cross in the top of it and open it out to rinse out any grit. Finely slice it. Break the broccoli into small florets. Finely slice the stalk.

  • 4.

    Drain the rice and tip it into a small pan. Add 300ml boiling water and a pinch of salt to the pan. Cover. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat right down. Gently cook for 8 mins till the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Take off the heat and leave to steam in the pan for 5 mins.

  • 5.

    While the rice cooks, warm a deep frying pan or wok over a high heat for 2 mins. Add 2 tsp oil with the carrot, leek and broccoli. Stir fry for 5-8 mins till the veg just start to soften.

  • 6.

    Add the crab to the pan. Pour in the gingery vinegar mixture. Stir fry for 3-5 mins to warm everything through. Take off the heat. Taste and add a pinch of salt if you think it needs it.

  • 7.

    Fluff the rice up with a fork and divide between two warm bowls. Top with the crab and veg. Serve straight away.
