This Indonesian dish has lots of flavor and is a really tasty way to eat lots of nutritious vegetables during your Candida treatment. It’s designed for the later stages of the diet, and so it includes rice and carrot which are both on the list of “maybe” foods. If you wish, you can adjust the recipe to substitute in other vegetables and perhaps some quinoa.
In Indonesian and Malay, Nasi Goreng literally just means “fried rice.” But in practice it usually refers to dishes that include fried pre-cooked rice, soy sauce, tamarind, and other flavors. This version is a little different, with more of a savory flavor and less of the sweetness from the tamarind.
