There are so many kinds of fried rice options in Asia. Basically they are made from leftover rice and mixed with everyday condiments in the cupboard. With nasi goreng, it's simply rice with the flavorful paste you mix it with. Other ingredients, like shrimp and chicken, are optional, and it depends on how you want to eat the rice dish. It is Indonesia's best bet for a flavorful fried rice mix, at least to me, because it is one of my favorite rice dishes.
With some leftover quinoa in the fridge, I took a different approach and used it instead of rice. It gave the dish an earthier tone but without losing the flavors I love most about nasi goreng.
Nasi goreng is a delicious Indonesian fried rice dish, and for a little change, I switched the rice with quinoa for a healthier option. The flavors remain, but the nutrients are boosted.
