“Nasi” Goreng Cauliflower

by Afra Taidin on Tue, July 26, 2016

This is actually ‘faux’ nasi goreng because there are no rice at all in the recipe. Cauliflower is a good substitute as it has lesser calories, carbs and fat. So, yes, it won’t taste exactly the same, but the flavour is actually quite tasty. It’s faster to make too because you don’t need to cook any rice beforehand!

Rice-less Nasi Goreng

Serves 4 people

Just like Nasi Goreng, you can use whatever leftover protein and veg you have on hand to make this.
