Breakfast Nasi Goreng

When you’re looking for a hearty breakfast to see you through the day, this breakfast nasi goreng with quinoa will definitely do the trick. It’s perfect for an indulgent weekend treat or mid-week pick-me-up -any excuse really, it’s that good! For a vegan option leave out the egg and for a grain-free option swap the quinoa for cauliflower rice.

Preparation is key

There is a bit of work in preparing this dish but it is well worth it. To save time, have your Quinoa pre-cooked. Also, have your herbs and vegetables cut and washed the night before so that it only takes ten minutes to whip in the morning. Any leftovers will be delicious for lunch!
