Not even Nasi Goreng Kampung is spared the cauliflower treatment, eh? heh..heh..heh... Why not, right? It so happened that I spied some fresh cauliflower at Jaya Grocer and an idea entered my mind. Nasi goreng!
You know I love rice and how much I love nasi goreng. And when I eat nasi goreng, I can eat two or three plates. That's terrible isn't it? When I eat, I really eat and this is how I always get myself into trouble.
So nowadays, when I cook fried rice, I inevitably add grated cauliflower to add bulk and that way, I eat less carbs. And because the fried rice is made with a mixture of rice (1/3) and grated cauliflower(2/3), I do not feel deprived and it feels more like real fried rice.
It is a workable solution for me and somehow, eating any dish accompanied with rice makes it so much better and enjoyable. These days, I try not to be so strict and I go low carbs rather than no carb.
Life is short. Enjoy your food while you can, within reason of course.
To cook this Cauliflower Nasi Goreng Kampung, use your favorite recipe and instead of using 100% rice, you can use a ratio of 1/3 rice and 2/3 grated cauliflower or 1/2 and 1/2. Indulgence with less guilt (or consequences)!
