Nasi Goreng plus a cheeky cheat ingredient that makes life easier
I do love a ‘cheat’ ingredient that makes life a little easier.
My favourite is frozen chopped garlic, which is a fab time saver (and I no longer find garlic bulbs sprouting green shoots at the back of my condiment drawer).
Now I’ve just discovered a new favourite. One recipe from Quick After-Work uses ready-made crispy fried onions. Who knew?
Sold in tubs, ready-made crispy fried onions give a handy savoury crunch to all sorts of dishes.
Yes, fried onions are not difficult to cook but this handy little tub means you don’t have to dirty an extra pan and suffer watering eyes chopping onions.
Nasi Goreng is also new to me but WOW. It’s so delicious (yet so simple). It’s an Indonesian fried-rice dish, usually topped with a fried egg.
Rick Stein describes it as “one of the world’s great comfort foods” and he’s right, it really is.
Give it a try and see if you agree.
This Nasi Goreng recipe is from our Quick After-Work cookbook.
The book has sold more on our website than any other so it must be good!
