Anita's advice: Nasi Goreng with lots of vegetables - a main course


A main course.

6 servings



300g white rice (basmati or brown rice)

200g of ham steak, chicken fillet or vegetarian meat

1 red pepper or 2-4 jalopeño peppers

3 leek (500gr)

2 onions (500gr)

500g carrots

500g red pepper (or 250g pepper + 250g mushrooms)

2 cloves of garlic

1 package/box of boemboe nasi goreng

4 tbsp ketjap manis

3 tbsp sunflower oil

4 eggs

150 grams of mixed (frozen) soup vegetables (for the omelet)

Peanut sauce and 2 satay skewers per person to finish it off.


Preparation (45 min preparation, 15 frying time):

2 cups of water per cup of basmati rice (or excess water and drain when the rice is done). Boil the water until it boils, add the rice, wait until it boils again and then let it cook on low heat, stirring occasionally, for 14 minutes (see packaging). Brown rice often needs a little more cooking time. I prefer to make the rice a day earlier.

Wash the leek and cut it into rings. Chop the onions, peppers and carrots.

Defrost the frozen soup vegetables. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan. Beat the eggs with salt and pepper, the vegetables and a dash of milk. Bake the omelet for 5 minutes. Turn after 3 minutes.

Cut the meat into cubes. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok and fry for 10 minutes until done and crispy. Remove the seeds from the red pepper and chop the pepper very finely. Add to the meat and fry briefly.

Wok the chopped vegetables and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the bumbu and fry for another 4 minutes.

Stir in the rice and meat and fry for another 4 minutes.

Season with the soy sauce. Serve with the omelette, 2 skewers of satay and satay sauce.



If you have a choice, would you rather eat only rice or only vegetables with a spice mix? Only spaghetti strings or only tomato sauce? The Chinese prefer to feed us as much rice as possible with a stray piece of carrot, onion or leek here and there, but I say: the more vegetables, the tastier the nasi, the healthier, and the more you can eat for the same calories. The above recipe contains a relatively large amount of salt, which is due to the bumbu, the ketjap and the sateh sauce.

€2.00 for a 600 grams ration, including 25gr sateh sauce.
