Cauliflower Nasi Goreng Kampung


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)!

  2. Yum! Yum! I fully agree with you that "Life is short. Enjoy your food while you can, within reason of course." I would love to eat your version of this healthy fried rice. Are those bergedil or beef on top of your fried rice?

  3. I love fried rice but have not been cooking it often lately because I try not to have leftover rice. So no excuse to cook fried rice. Haha.

    Hmm. You do love cauliflower.

    1. Setuju kan, Hainom? Nak ngap, just ngap aje. Badan punya hal belakang kira hah..hah... Tapi jangan keterlaluan pulak. Cauliflower jarang dapat yang cantik. Selalunya dah ada bintik2.

  6. Oh! So there was rice in it. I thought it looked like that. I've yet to try cooking cauliflower fried rice, so lazy. Like I always say, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Wish you lived next door - I could always invite myself over. :D

  8. If you didn't tell me that there was cauliflower in your fried rice, I wouldn't have known as it looked like the real deal. I love fried rice too, so I'm going to try this healthier version :) Other than grating cauliflower by hand (which is a lot of work), do you think I could blitz it up instead and still achieve the same result and texture?

    1. Yes, you could blitz it up in a food processor. Actually that's how it was done in the original recipe. Just make sure you don't blitz it up to finely.

  15. Phong Hong, low carbs is good enough, zero carb is too deprived. I reckon. I try to go low carbs too. I go without rice and bread. I can't go without noodles and biscuits.

    1. Yannie is right. If too deprived, we tend to rebel and go crazy hah..hah.. So I still eat carbs but not everyday.

  16. That's right, PH. Enjoy eating while you can. Nanti tak boleh makan itu, ini, takdalah merasa lagi. Just be moderate, okaylah.
