My healthy low carb take on a flavourful fried rice. Nasi Goreng simply means ‘fried rice’ but over at Keto Diet App we like to do things a little different so we’ve kept the carbs low, ditched all the preservatives and brought you a speedy weeknight dinner that’s packed full of flavour, nutrients and next to no washing up! Bonus!

This one’s vegetarian but feel free to add some cooked prawns, pulled chicken or pork if you prefer.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180 C/ 355 F (fan assisted). Prepare the dressing by mixing all the ingredients together in a small bowl.

Peel and finely slice the vegetables into matchsticks. Blitz the cauliflower florets in a high speed food processor until they resemble a rice consistency.

Heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and fry on a low-medium heat for 3 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and fry for another minute. Add the carrot and cabbage and fry for a further 1 to 2 minutes until el dente.
Add 1 more tablespoon of coconut oil to the vegetables and stir fry the cauliflower rice altogether for a further 3 to 4 minutes. Stir through the dressing.
Place the almonds on a baking tray and roast for 5 to 6 minutes until golden. Fry the eggs in a little oil to your liking.
Place the cauliflower Nasi Goreng into bowls and top with sugar snap peas, cucumber, coriander, almonds and fried egg. Option to add chilli sauce, black pepper and an extra squeeze of lime. Best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in the fridge for 1 day.
